I read this book hoping to find more ways to get things done better. I work in IT, so the less I have to do the better. I find that If I was a manager then this book would work great. As it is I don't want to outsource my work because my employer will simply stop using me. The bane of all IT professionals jobs. If I was running my own business I would love everything about this book.
Life changing! At the TOP!
I have read several VERY good books lately but this one was, as I said LIFE CHANGING!
What I need to do is purchase a hard copy so I can have all the DETAILS he gave on paper! SO MUCH INFO!!!
THANK YOU!! I am telling all my friends to read it!
I would definately recommend this book! If you have ever desired to escape the 8-5 workforce, then this is a must-read (or listen)! Like a previous reviewer stated, if you only apply 20 percent of this, you will go far. If nothing else, this book will inspire you to start thinking like the rich, not an employee.
It gave me the push (and the info) I needed to move abroad.... :)
I loved this book. It had so much usable information in the first half of the book, that I was delighted to hear it was continued. I've used some of the principals in the book already and listened to it a second time.
There are a lot of references to where to find information and do the things outlined in the book. It really gives you a step by step guide to any of the pricipals he describes in the book, so you can truly do it yourself.
This reader adds just the right snarkyness to bring a good interpretation of the writers tone. I laughed more than once.
Not a single moment, but after the second listen, I wrote so many notes - I had to go buy the hardcover book and just flag the pages that I wanted to reference again.
An avid learner and therefore, lover of non-fiction works, specifically about business, marketing and sales.
I would listen to this again, and as a matter of fact, listened to it a second time just a week after I finished the first time. There were so many good points and I wasn't able to take notes, that I just felt like another listen was mandatory.
This book definitely lit a fire under my bottom and there are a few key points that anyone wishing for a better life should pay close attention to. Tim's philosophy on living is somewhat unique and quite refreshing... a bit against the grain in a good way. My only disappointment was that Tim wasn't the actual voice actor for the book, but then again, after you listen to it, you'll understand exactly why he didn't do the read himself, so... perhaps that's not a complaint. It is a bit long and there are times where the book seems to veer off course from the main point of the book, such as when he gets too, detailed about traveling and such, but who can really complain about extra info that some people might find useful and interesting.
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
When he was able to remove nonprofitable customers and free up time and money
Just a little hard to tell who is telling their story at times but other than that it flows well.
Do only the important things and get on with doing my best work elsewhere.
Enjoyed the book, Timothy, you have my ear!
This book, like its author, lacks substance. It is an autobiography of a shameless self-promoter, not a guide to self-improvement. It has no useful ideas or inspirations for business or life. He alienated me quicker than an Amway salesman. His life plan:
(1) Start crappy supplement company
(2) Find some obscure "records" that require no effort to pursue, and break them via some sort of loophole. BRAG ABOUT IT!
(3) Sell book.
(4) *Forthcoming* Realize life consisted of an aggregation of resume entries that lack meaning or substance.
The book was a fantastic listen. The narration was wonderful as well. There were so many tips in this book that I had to listen to it twice. If you are looking for a way to break out of the rat race this book gives you an excellent place to start.
