"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. This will be huge." (Jack Canfield)
Great book for someone interested in starting a side business. Gives great ideas on automation and expands your thinking on how to lead your companies.
A lot of novel concepts for me as a small business owners. The 4 hours isn't to be taken literally, but a lot of great ideas to improve your business and life style
I recommend this book to anyone who will listen. I wish I would have known about it when I started my business. VERY helpful info and colorfully written.
Its the first book I've really heard of its kind. Don't let the title fool you, its all business.
Defiantly the author, Tim Ferris.
Its a little long at 12 hours, so I broke it up into different sections to listen to. Often going back and listening to parts I've already heard to make sure I took it in. Listening to it in on sitting might be tough but breaking it up is very enjoyable.
If your on the fence, just do it! Listen to it. Well worth the money.
I would recommend this book to a friend in hard copy. There is a wealth of reference information that gets lost in the recitation.
Anybody feeling trapped in the 8 to 5 experience should have a listen to see potential alternatives.
I have listened to 4 hour WW twice, and I am sure I will listen again.
Very easy to understand and HIGHLY motivational!!
Ray Porter is THE BEST narrator of any book Ive heard!! I will search out Ray to listen to him again!!
I've begun work on 2 ideas that have been mulling for years, this book is HIGHLY motivational.
The outside the box thinking gives hope and creative inspiration that life should be easier and more fun.
Must read! Tim Ferriss is inspirational and makes you feel anyone can do this.
Lots of good information and entertaining as well. Enjoyed it and am planning to put some of it to use.
Loved this book. The author has a good sense of humour and writing style and I found the content interesting and challenging. The only issue was there was so much technical information, worthwhile lists and processes, that I now need to go and buy the physical book. All good for business I'm sure, but basically I really enjoyed this initial review.
Used to read classic lit for pleasure of well-written prose. Now, with MS, it's thrillers, courtroom/police dramas, and adventure to escape!
My husband listened to this book so this is his review. The book, in his opinion, gives a portrait of a lifestyle that seems fairly unrealistic for the typical person. He also noted that the additions from the first book, which he also read were nominal... just a few small tidbits that didn't really make purchasing the updated book worth it. Bottom line, he didn't come away with any revelations after reading either of these book, tempting as they sound.
