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 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.
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.
Listening helps you to see a number of things you can do or change to make your work easier, more streamlined and tips and tricks to help you reduce the hours you have to work.
It does have some ideas that I don't think are practical for allot of people.
I did find it worth getting and do recommend it.
I've had my own business for almost 10 years and have pretty much broken every tenant he puts forward in the book. The good news is that I can change! Ferris offers so many timely, practical, and achievable tips that are now helping me change how I run the business. And while I may never have a regular 4 hour workweek, I sure am going to find more time for growing my business and growing my life outside my business.
I also LOVE having this as an audible book so I can listen to it on the go (and the narrator has great pipes, too <:).
