I just downloaded this book and look forward to listening to it, however I must say it is trying to reach a 4 hour work week in 13 hours..... Is it worth the time? I'll keep you posted.
I had read some negative reviews of this book and had my doubts, but I found it very enjoyable to read, but most importantly, it gave me a whole bunch of new tools and strategies to use in my life. Except for family requirements (kids in school), I am someone who can take full advantage of the way Tim proposes we work. I have to listen again as it is well stocked with good advice. You kind of need to take notes as you listen and I did it almost entirely on my bike. His accompanying website is an awesome addition to the process. This is one of those books that has started to change my outlook and the way I manage my life. Much appreciated.
This is perhaps one of the most impacting and life-changing book that I have ever read on pursuing your dreams, goals, and passions. Tim gives a very clear blueprint for designing your ideal lifestyle and the tips, tricks, and shortcuts that he provides are astounding. Perhaps the best 22 bucks I've ever spent. I've recommended it to everyone I know and many whom meet. If you're ready to get out of the Matrix, this book is for you.
What can I say. As a pure capitalist I would prefer to trash this book so no one else would read it. That's how much it changed my life. But I owe it to Tim Ferriss (yes to the other reviewer - He IS the man!) to tell it like it is.
I'm 40 and I own and run 3 successful businesses that take all my time. I have everything I could ever want but no time to enjoy it. After listening to this book I immediately started the process of selling them all.
I then sat down and wrote a 2 page business plan that will allow me to work only a few hours each week. Its a good workable plan that plays to my strengths. After my mini-retirement I will start to build my new automated business. I feel like 1000 pounds have been lifted off my shoulders.
My first book on tape, some of his ideas don't seem as practice as he makes them out to be and they should have just referenced a website of links to go to rather than reading of the many web site addresses. But still its an all around good book.
Fun, Different, Acceptable
How he is able to describe many methods to being successful in life as well as your goals.
This book should be listen to when ever and how ever you want Its goo 360 degrees
Enjoy! I did!
Oh how doth I love this book. Timothy Ferriss is a genius and has quite a sense of humor as well. So many great lessons to learn from this audio book.
This was a wasted credit and 8 hours that I managed to endure. The author is a scammer and BS artist. This book won't help you. The information really only applies to corporate upper management. The narrator is absolutely horrible. It is torture to listen to this garbage.
I had to double check if the book was narrated by Timothy himself because the narrator really seemed to capture what I assumed the author was thinking. Most professional narrators don't capture the emotion and emphasis as author-narrators do. Once again, the narration is superior.
Frankly, I'm only about 30 min into the audiobook, but the story and content has already captured my attention, and thought process to some degree.
