Publisher's Summary

Tim Ferriss is an extraordinary young man on a mission. The 28-year-old serial vagabond and successful entrepreneur has been teaching a wildly popular course at Princeton University for the past four years: a how-to and why-to guide to throwing out the old methods for success (balancing life and work, retiring well, having a great nest egg) and replacing them with an entirely new way of living.

The 4 Hour Work Week explains what a lifestyle entrepreneur is and why you should want to become one. It teaches you how to "kill" your job and design a life, the 80/20 rule and how it increases productivity, how to replace your dreams with goals, and more. Listeners can lead a rich life by working only four hours a week, freeing up the rest of their time to spend it living the lives they want.

What the Critics Say

"It's about time this book was written. It is a long-overdue manifesto for the mobile lifestyle, and Tim Ferriss is the ideal ambassador." (Jack Canfield)
"Thanks to Tim Ferriss, I have more time in my life to travel, spend time with family, and write book blurbs. This is a dazzling and highly useful work." (A.J. Jacobs, Editor-at-Large, Esquire)

    "Waste of time"

    A lot of drivel for content. And the narration? Way over the top. Save your credits.

    "Great information"

    This book is great - Ferris has done a great job. The narration is a little irritating because the reader has a rather angry tone, but you can't pass up the information in here.

    "Amazing"

    Buy it, Listen to it, live it, love it. Everyone should be given a copy of this book at birth, there's nothing more that can be said.

    "Best Book since Rich Dad Poor Dad"

    This is probably the top 2 on favorite book list. Tim is beyond his years and beyond this century! (if that makes sense)

    "The 4 Hour Work Week"

    I was surprised to read the other reviews criticizing the reader's voice. I actually liked it and thought it was perfect for this book. I would highly recommend it to anyone looking to eliminate the guilt attached to not being in the office and working 24/7.
