On the "pro" side:
(1)This book is often humerous and entertaining (2)The lists of service websites are a valuable time saver when looking for available resources for your business.
(3) Its motivational value (mostly from motivational quotes) and fear analysis chapter is helpful.
But on the "con" side I'm afraid Tim Ferriss is like many other successful Type-A persons who want to credit a "plan" or "program" for their success (you can SELL this) rather than the more likely reality: He marketed the right product to the right people at the right time.
While getting this, the listener must endure some rather crude humor and somewhat unethical suggestions. HIs 'liberation' from the office job really only applies to cubicle dwelling underperformers whose jobs are almost entirely phone calls and web based. This simply wouldn't apply to most careers.
I gave it a 2 because I think it falls far below its promises. If the book was entitled "A brief biography of Tim Ferriss" I would have given it a 4 or 5.
