His ideas are to cheat, lie, and take advantage of your employer while you really work for personal gain on your own business on company time.
Honestly, all three: anger, sadness and disappointment.
I am disappointed that his works are popular because I really found his whole premise and style quite offensive. There are so many much much better books out there for people that want to succeed and feel good about themselves.As another example, he proudly recounts how he won a martial arts championship as a novice by exploiting a loophole. He couldn't beat the opponents so he used his size advantage and repeatedly pushed the opponent out of the ring causing them to be disqualified and him to win on a technicality.
Skip it. Some principles are sound (multiple cash flow options, flexible work hours), but the author believes he is a special snowflake that doesn't have to abide by anyone's standards or rules. Nor does he have a work ethic. That alone made this book intolerable.
for entrepreneurs, employees & anyone looking for a better life. Tim's simple layer out approach will set you on the path to take back your life!
This was a great listen to anyone who wants to this differently about the future of their career. Some points are extreme and some points are right on, but regardless, I feel like I am ready to begin my research to start my own business and eventually quit my job that I hate. I feel motivated and confident that I have what it takes to be an entrepreneur who creates and lives by my own schedule.
I bought this because I was bored to death: is life only about work, bills, and staying home to shoulder your "responsibilities?" I was born and made myself for this? No - shouts Tim Ferriss but unlike others with revolutionary ideas he makes it REAL and entertaining and informative!
There isn't a sould who can't gain something valuable from this book. Just Ray Porters voice is enough to get you up in the morning.
Thank you Tim Ferris!!! This book has single handedly changed my life on multiple occasions. It motivated me to pass up a huge opportunity with my company and pursue my true passion of real estate. Instead of accepting the job, I gave my notice and took off to Hawaii for a week to Parasail at Waikiki Beach, swim with sea turtles, hike to exotic waterfalls and admire the tdouble rainbows! Little did I know, that decision was only the beginning! I just finished reading the book for the fourth time and about to start it again. This book is my Bible, and has continued to motivate me to push the limits of comfort, pursue entrepreneurial success, and it continues to pay off financially and emotionally for me! I recommend this book to everyone I care about! I couldn't imagine being where I am in my life right now without the suggestions, motivation, and guidance of this book. Tim, you really speak to me and articulate exactly how I felt for a long time but never knew how to communicate the others...until now. Thank again, this book has been an absolute life changer!
