I listened to this audiobook and kept waiting for the author to get to the part which made it clear why he picked the title he did. He spends most of his time speaking about three things: outsourcing odd jobs to india, convincing boss to let you work from home some, and taking mini retirements of a year or so. the only trouble is that most bosses arent going to let you spend 36 of your 40 yours out of the office and still keep you job and most people who are interested in building a life are not going to be able to uproot and just travel to some distance location of the globe (the author gives useless advice about using online travel cites etc to get good deals). it seems this books simply is the authors way of living his own advice. he did not want to work for a living so he through together a bunch of random examples from his own life and bunched it together to sale to us suckers to fund his next year long mini retirement.
I paid $20 to listen to this guy tell me he became a spiritual teacher by sitting on a park bench for two years and doing nothing while he lost all contact with friends and family. This makes him a spiritual teacher??? Sounds to me like many of the bums you can find sitting on park benchs in all of the large cities who have not bathed for weeks and are busy talking to the voices in their heads.
