I've avoided this book for years because of the title. I was certain that anybody promoting a 4 hour work week was selling snake oil.
What I found though was a thought provoking look at the way most of us 'do work' and even life. I recommend this to anyone looking to break out of your routine and the monotony of 9-5 or, like me, break free from the 70+ hr work weeks.
Frequently while listening to this inspired book, I found myself overwhelmed by an awareness of God's closeness. It rekindled a deeper hunger in my life for an active an alive connection with the Spirit of God. It moved me to tears more times than I'd like to admit, and even at the end, what I find myself wanting to do is simply find a quiet place to seek His face.
Without a doubt, this is the most impacting and straight forward book of its kind I've read so far this year. It's bold and direct without being dogmatic or unnecessarily offensive, and it is one of those rare books that I think will find a place of relevance and connection with anyone brave enough to read it.
I've read them all, and can only think of one or two that I may have liked more than this one. If you're a Bosch fan, you need this one in your collection.
I generally avoid this type of book because there is an overwhelming amount of speculation and guessing involved. I gave this a try based on reviews and was completely floored again and again by the content. Profound and relevant to our generation for sure.
I would have given 5 stars, but the narrative does seem to drag on at times. A couple of times, I considered putting it down towards the end, but I'm glad I stuck with it. Outstanding!
