    "Thank You Tim Ferriss"

    I have listened to your book mostly during stolen moments working in my garden. I have bought the hard cover version. I am on my path to freedom.

    "Absolute Life Changer"

    Thank you Tim Ferris!!! This book has single handedly changed my life on multiple occasions. It motivated me to pass up a huge opportunity with my company and pursue my true passion of real estate. Instead of accepting the job, I gave my notice and took off to Hawaii for a week to Parasail at Waikiki Beach, swim with sea turtles, hike to exotic waterfalls and admire the tdouble rainbows! Little did I know, that decision was only the beginning! I just finished reading the book for the fourth time and about to start it again. This book is my Bible, and has continued to motivate me to push the limits of comfort, pursue entrepreneurial success, and it continues to pay off financially and emotionally for me! I recommend this book to everyone I care about! I couldn't imagine being where I am in my life right now without the suggestions, motivation, and guidance of this book. Tim, you really speak to me and articulate exactly how I felt for a long time but never knew how to communicate the others...until now. Thank again, this book has been an absolute life changer!

    "Won't be the last time I listen to this book..."

    Reading this book when it first came out many years ago really changed my idea of what is possible in life!

    Since then, just when I think I have taken it all in, I freshen up with another listen - and make many new breakthroughs each time!

    This isn't just a recommended read, it should be compulsory for anyone who thinks that there is a small chance that their life could be a bit (or, in most peoples cases, a WHOLE LOT) better!!

    Read it today, and start making changes!!

    "Overcome Fear"

    Very informative. Listen with a pen and paper. Pauline often to take it in. Then listen again. Fear takes time to leave the body, this book speeds it up so you lose the fear while you can still walk!

    "Life Changing"

    Awesome book! While not everything in this book will be for everyone, the general concept is one that EVERYONE should know and apply in their professional lives.

    "lazy"

    I became very bored after the third or fourth chapter. Definitely one of those books I couldn't wait to be through with.

    "Best book I have ever read"

    A lot to take in and it will take time to do everything Tim says. However, just the different look at life makes it worth the read. I warn you, if you read it once you will get addicted and read it over and over. It's amazing
