If everyone lived like this nothing would ever move forward. A bible for anyone who doesn't value actually contributing to society.
Basically just tells you to come up with a product and sell it and make a bunch of money, what a great idea
This is a great book. However they used a computer voice instead of an actual person. Didnt like the way this audio book sounded.
This is an absolute must read for everyone. This is my exclusive absolute recommendation. Details, details, details. Nothing is abstract, it is a gem.
I've avoided this book for years because of the title. I was certain that anybody promoting a 4 hour work week was selling snake oil.
What I found though was a thought provoking look at the way most of us 'do work' and even life. I recommend this to anyone looking to break out of your routine and the monotony of 9-5 or, like me, break free from the 70+ hr work weeks.
I have over 25 years of experience in Healthcare and after drinking copious amounts of coffee decided to stick with truly great coffee and indulge not only in drinking it, but selling it too. I believe life should be a lot of fun and education a life long pursuit.... Learn something new every day and live 'at least' 10% out of your comfort zone at all times.
I never picked up the print version of this book. With limited time on my hands it was ideal as an audio book. I will retain it for future reference and still need to go to the web site and look at the additional tools available.
No character stands out in my mind. I saw this book as an educational tool.
This is a first listen for me with reference to Ray Porter. I felt Ray did an excellent job.
Wow, there are so many! The main gift I have from this book is to value my time more and find ways to reduce wasting it.
Concept in this book is a challenge to implement in your life However, I am already seeing changes that are a huge benefit.
30+ IT/Geek Male. Used to read lots, but now the "reading" is best done via audible.
I would suggest this as one of those package deals with the written book. There really is too much to the framework to get it from the listening alone. I suggest the first listen, is done end to end without the book. Then listen to each chapter, a second time, when you get to the "questions and actions" pull out your book and start working thru it all. Now is the time to make friends with evernote or some other workflow solution for arching information digitally. I really would suggest evernote, once it's paid, the ability to also OCR index the scanned text, and pdf text, is a powerful tool. :)
Ray Porter did a fine job of narrating. The book itself is terrible.
I may have gotten a couple of pointers from it, but that's about it. Nothing that I can't do without or that is going to change my business performance.
I don't normally write negative reviews on anything, but this book was horrible. It was all about how to cut corners and get people to do all of the work for you. I don't like people who take shortcuts through life and jump from one "good thing" to the next just to make a buck. Apparently the author is successful at what he does, but at what and whose expense. I actually didn't even finish listening to the book because some of the things he was suggesting were so far fetched and ridiculous. All it did was annoy me driving to work in traffic, which as most people know causes enough annoyance. I would not recommend this book.
Gives many practical ways of doing things more efficiently and effectively. Listening to he audio book I realised I needed the paper version as well in order to check on some of the webistes etc. Mahendra
I have a bit of a different outlook on business than the author, but I definitely learned a lot of new things and have changed my business to apply some of the things I learned. This book was worth the money.
Still, this book was not as good as "The E-Myth Revisited." That was easily the best business book I've ever read, and I've read a lot....
