Everything he shared is so basic, and old news, that I didn't really find any value in it. Plus it is boring. I love the internet and have been recently having success with my online business. I was hoping to gain a lot more incite into the world of online business, but I felt like I was wasting my time going back to preschool. I'm sure he is a nice guy. Maybe he should have hired someone else to narrate it. I wish I had not bought this book.
I love the 4-Hour Work Week. While Tim and I have very different life goals, I learned so much from him, and have listened to that audiobook over and over. The 4-Hour Body, however, was a huge disappointment. He's a pervert, and in ways that are anything but scientific, he gives one of the worst formulas for a healthy body I've ever heard.
Am I an expert?... no, but a year ago I did lose 50 lbs. and I've kept it off for a year now. At 36 I'm in the best shape I've ever been in. There are programs out there that can really help, but I did not find them in this book.
I don't know. I bought this book because my life is better because of Tim. Reading the 4-hour work week book changed my life for the better.
The success of that book must have gone to his head, because now he thinks he can preach this garbage to me.
The narrator was fine.
Huge Disappointment. I lost a lot of respect for Tim Ferriss. He was someone who I totally admired, and now I'd be ashamed to associate with.
I am an avid audiobook listener. 90% of them relate to business and entrepreneurship. I listen when I go running or mountain biking. When I first began listening to this book, I liked it. I didn't learn anything specific, but it did help my brain process some ideas I'm currently working on. As I continued to listen, however, I began noticing contradictions in what he was saying. Then I began noticing the promotion of subtle falsehoods that a new entrepreneur would not notice. While listening to the end of the audiobook, while biking on one of my favorite bike trails, I exclaimed out loud several things like, "This guy is a hypocrite," and "This guy is an idiot," and "This book is poison for new entrepreneurs."
I have never given a book this harsh of a review. Seasoned and successful entrepreneurs will see right through this book, but my fear is that new entrepreneurs will eat this up. It's written in a way that mingles a lot of sound advice with advice that is crippling.
If you are a new entrepreneur, skip this book, and replace it with the following 3 Books:
Cashflow Quadrant by Robert Kiyosaki
The E-Myth Revisited by Michael Gerber
The 4-Hour Work Week by Timothy Ferriss
It's an academic study... not based on personal experience. He takes stories of both success and failure and interprets their results with his own spin. I've had many similar experiences to the stories he shared, and saw right through his terrible advice.
I don't think so
