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.

"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)
This book opened my eyes to a new way of thinking. A most read for any one wanting to enjoy life, and work and any thing you want to do. Looking at every thing in a new way makes you relize ther really is more than one way to skin a cat.
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.
Using technology of the 21 century from online and other sources to build a business/ entreprenural lifestyle that wont get in the way of living super rich and achieving all the personal goals you have for yourself
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.
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.
This is a fabulous book for those of us who have embraced the new economy and work in the world of web. It also offers keen advice on what is relevant and what is optional. An interesting perspective.
I expected a bit more detail on how to do this, I know we have all at some point or another dreamed of doing this. Really the auther is not saying anything we haven't all though of. I just need more direction so I can live the dream and still retire some day :)
The content of the book is great as are the examples. The narrator sounds very arrogant and from time to time, the author uses rather crude language. If you can look past all that, the core content is worth your time. A great series of lessons in applied creativity.
