    Story
    "The links to the Apps/Methods are worth it alone"
    If you could sum up The 4-Hour Workweek: Escape 9-5, Live Anywhere, and Join the New Rich (Expanded and Updated) in three words, what would they be?

    Worth Your Time


    Would you recommend The 4-Hour Workweek: Escape 9-5, Live Anywhere, and Join the New Rich (Expanded and Updated) to your friends? Why or why not?

    Absolutely! It has instructions on uncluttering your life, simplifying the use and access to technology, and actual instructions in a step by step format that are easy to follow.


    What about Ray Porter’s performance did you like?

    His believeable and solid voice inspires trust and is easy to follow, understand and immerse oneself into the lessons being laid out.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, but one needs to go over different portions while in front of their computer.


    Any additional comments?

    While I likely wont start an online business as he shows how to do, the structuring of ones life, the methods for stripping the essentials out for analyses are important and enjoyable. A fun listen that also is very educational.

    "Everyone should listen to this book! but..."
    What did you like best about The 4-Hour Workweek: Escape 9-5, Live Anywhere, and Join the New Rich (Expanded and Updated)? What did you like least?

    The narrator did a great job with narration. Sounding confident, and keeping it interesting.

    I thought that the author could have spent more time on HOW to make money and automating the income streams. I did not like that he spent so long on telling you where to get information for when you are living overseas. Hours..literally.. the problem is that I didn't feel 100% comfortable with his ideas by the time he got to this part.

    I feel like I'd rather be hearing more about how to make a kick ass business (which he does cover..albeit could have talked longer about it). Rather than telling me for hours how to live overseas and what websites would be great for information.


    Have you listened to any of Ray Porter’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No, I haven't. but the narrator has done a great job of matching the authors own confidence with his narration. He did a great job of having a varied voice, with lots of emotions, very clear and strong. I'd follow this man into battle if I had to.

    In fact I hope that Ray will go on to do great things of his own.


    Did The 4-Hour Workweek: Escape 9-5, Live Anywhere, and Join the New Rich (Expanded and Updated) inspire you to do anything?

    Yes! I WILL become part of the new rich.

    Would you listen to The 4-Hour Workweek: Escape 9-5, Live Anywhere, and Join the New Rich (Expanded and Updated) again? Why?

    I will listen to this book again and again, and make use of the information. I read the original when it first came out, but having it on Audio lets me check in, refine and re-motivate. Tim Ferriss is a modern day hero!

    "Arrogantly Good"
    Any additional comments?

    Raw, arrogant, conceded, amateurish. A hardy punch in the gut. A good slap across your conceived notion. It'll piss you off to know the answer is right in front of you all along. The question will then be- will you do something about it?

    A little slow at first. Ride it through. It's a great book.

    "It seemed too good to be true, but..."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I recommend this book to anyone and everyone who is living a nose to the grindstone, save every penny for retirement, stress saturated life. Tim gives a new perspective to the type A over-achiever which is worth hearing. It feels as if you are listening to a good friend share his and other down to earth successful entrepreneurs' secret. The book is filled with helpful information and is quite humorous. I bought the hard copy after listening, so that I could reference websites and take notes.
