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 has an enticing title but is not realistic. The author already generates $80k per month with his online business and suggests that anyone can do that also. Yet there is no clear way to get to this number or to do the things that he suggests -like a Virtual Assistant, without spending more moeny. When you have $80K to do whatever you want, it sounds easy but without it, I did not find this book of value. I also didn't like the tone of the reader or the constant reading of url sites w w w . / / etc. I listened to the author sound out website addresses for over 10 minutes and by that time, I forgot why he was providing them. I stopped listening to the book half way through even though I was waiting to catch on. This may be better as a read and not as an audio.
Fantastic! Inspirational. Funny. Ever fantasized about running away to a different country? Ever wondered how you could start a small Internet business to make extra cash WITHOUT spending every free minute tending it? Ever wanted work from home…freeing you to spend more time with family? Need REAL links to REAL businesses that can save you time and money AND free you from being location bound?
I’ve listened multiple times. Each listening has brought new ideas…and a better life. Tim’s writing style is fun, fact filled, and fast. His tips are great for those who need more time in the day and those who want to have all the time in the world!
I liked the audio so much; I bought the hardcopy! Did I mention the audiobook/book have passwords that get you access to more content on the web!
Buy this book and audio! Now. What are you waiting for? Your life is waiting!
Just an unbelievable book... I own my own consulting business, and am currently trying to figure out how to apply Tim's teachings toward my structure, as quickly as possible. This is the lifesaver tossed out to anyone that wants to escape spending their life working, and not enjoying. The narrator did a great job with his highly motivational tone throughout the book.
Provacative and challenging. For those that want to change their lives, this book is packed with ideas that can do that. The many extras in this book will help you in managing your time, travelling, saving money, and a host of other practical suggestions.
It seems that there is nothing that Tim can't do. The dreams and travels that he has done is almost mindboggling. The book is packed with websites and information that is basically devided into two main sections. How to build a cashflow business and how to travel with only a backpack. I listened to the whole book in less than 24 hours, Tim is a great story teller.
Outstanding and thought provoking. Essential for anyone who is not willing to be a corporate slave, who wants more time and the ability to live on their own terms. I was amazed at how dramatic my paradigm shifted, and how I percieve work and my time differently. After listening to it, I bought the hard cover to study it more thoroughly.
This is one of the best books I've ever read. It is simplified, to the point, written eloquently (and humorously), and packs a wallup of a punch! Perhaps I am a little biased because I've always dreamed of having the lifestyle that Tim describes, especially with the travel aspect. All I can say is "get this book" and "Thank you Tim. You've changed my life forever!"
Don't bother with listening to the whole book. Listen to a sample, or read the back flap and you will learn everything you need to know about this book. I listened to about 75% of the book, which turned out to be 73% too much.
I don't know what I was thinking. This is the usual book on making money with money and living a life of luxury. What did I think it was going to be time management? Brain Cramp.
This just annoyed me because he was ever so proud of his fabulous lifestyle. I am more interested in making the world a more just and safe place than in bungee jumping. Oh Well!
