I should have read the reviews. He's a narcissistic human being with no original thoughts. All of the theories and principles are borrowed, and then woven together in a patchwork which is regurgitated for the reader. The common thread? His egotistical stories in which he is the hero, fooling and controlling others to meet his own needs. Ferris would say that his manipulations are meant to free the reader to enjoy life, but the price of these games could well be relationships and finding enjoyment in everyday life.
This is an amazing audio book!!, I bought the hardcover and my husband stole it before I could start reading so I decided to get the Audio and it is even better!! It really has changed my life and how I see my future.
I was happy to get a chuckle every now and then!!
This book is just such crap.... that it falls into the category of
Again, I am glad that I listened to this book because I would not have lasted through reading it. I am glad to know what it's about, but I have mixed emotions about his approach and motives, including use of a muse. At least of few of the ideas can be eaily applied to my busy life for immediate positive benefits. I am not sure what would happen to the old-fashioned work ethic if everyone followed this approach, but....
His voice was too monotone, alot of ra ra me! He did give some good time tips, and the just of being your best is about time and chasing the right dream.
Instructional Designer is the area of Workforce Development.
Personally I did not like the author's content nor style; however based on earlier reviews, some do. Too folksy for me, but I think some of the information does work.
This guy is a potty mouth. I couldnt listen to it all the way through. He has some decent thoughts and inspiring stories, but I really wonder if he ever does get around to telling people how to have a 4 hour workweek. He talked about the 80/20 principle, but I could have learned about that by buying 80/20.
It's hard to believe this guys language is so trashy.
I read the book for the first time over 3 years ago and it literally cause a complete reevaluation on my life. I have since lived on 3 continents, designed my ideal career, and reinvented the life that I want. I have reread the book several time and every time am amazed. Seriously, the MOST influential book in my life.
