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)

    "Life Changing"

    I'm not entirely sure how I came across this book, but it's been life changing. Expertly presented and quite humorous. It should be on your Wish List if not in My Library.

    "Wow! This is a MUST READ for just about everyone!"

    For the first hour of this book, I wasn't feeling very warm and fuzzy about the author or the stage being set by him. However, everything changed. This book will have you laughing out loud, and questioning all the many social norms and fundamentals you have held dear, and which have been building blocks for the boring or unfulfilled life you are now trying to escape. It suggests options and provides an abundance of resources. Truly a life changing read.

    "Great advice for those that can handle uncertainty"

    Those that don't like this book are those that need the safety and false security of every day being the same tedium.
    Most people need others to create the environment that makes them feel safe and secure. The reality is that there is no such thing as security nor certainty. Life is to be lived.

    "Immature and selfish"

    Not worthwhile finishing listening - the author is clearly immature and doesn't like people (in general)

    "Using it already"

    We started to use some of the techniques in his book right after the first listen. It has saved me time and money. In a month we hope to be making money so then we can save even more time!
