I appreciate Tim's willingness to share his own personal tips, techniques and sometimes questionable methods. He gives real steps and resources for one to use to automate processes, work remotely, reduce work stress, and free up valuable time. I don't think these concepts will work for everyone, but they are great for the entrepreneurs and those who's professions are conducive to working remotely. I also like his tips for traveling efficiently and cheaply. The "new rich" concept is a great one! He's a little arrogant, but I'm a retired Naval Aviator and an aspiring entrepreneur, so I can appreciate the need for confidence in a demanding environment.
Overall, I really, really like this audiobook with one GLARING exception: it lists hundreds of URL resources in a way that is almost useless. It would have been a great companion document or something that we could skip over chapter by chapter without missing ACTUAL narrative content, but jamming it in as if you don't know that audio and written materials are fundamentally different is a mistake in my opinion. I wonder if TFerriss would have listened to this past the halfway mark when it became really monotonous.
Great book and great reading. I found it disconcerting to hear someone other than Tim Ferris read his own book after having listened to him for so long, but Ray Porter did an excellent job.
The book has several good ideas that I will keep in mind. However, the narrator ruined it for me. The voice came across as a guy bragging about his life (and it wasn't even Mr. Porter's life!). A humber voice would have given the book a very different, even inspiring, feel to me.
I lose patience quickly with arrogant people. Apparently, it has to do with their voice.
The idea in this book really resonate with me. There is also a ton of great resources for helping to accomplish goals in the books regardless of whether you want to be part of the new rich. Thanks Tim!
I honestly think this book was written for me. It speaks frankly about what NEEDS to change and why it MUST change. Any simpler a concept and the author would be doing it for me. Read it as many times as necessary to make you act.
