    Story
    "Largest complaint, the narrator."
    Would you try another book from Timothy Ferriss and/or Ray Porter?

    I don't think I'd read another Timothy Ferriss book longer than 2.5 hours because actual content takes a nose dive after that.

    I definitely won't be reading another book narrated by Ray Porter, he is far too annoy and over dramatic at times, which after a few hours becomes extremely annoying.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Just get another narrator.

    "Frustrating"

    Probably not the fault of the author or Audible, but definitely the fault of the publisher.
    After listening for an hour I'm guessing there are exercises or charts or graphics or fill-in-the-blanks that the narration speaks to and makes listening a futile and frustrating experience.
    Think I'll just buy the physical edition.
    And the publisher should reconsider this disservice.

    "Very informative but not very good story telling"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The 4-Hour Workweek: Escape 9-5, Live Anywhere, and Join the New Rich (Expanded and Updated) to be better than the print version?

    I would prefer paperback over audio book because this book have some really good information about outsourcing websites which I tend to forget easily on audio version. Also some of the chapters become very boring when the narrator goes on and on about a list of websites to consider. Skipping those chapters on paperback or kindle version is easier compared to audio.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Timothy Ferriss again?

    Yes, I like his practical approach to life.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    since there is no way to mark books as read in the library I thought this might be a way to mark them

    "Not adapted for audio"
    What would have made The 4-Hour Workweek: Escape 9-5, Live Anywhere, and Join the New Rich (Expanded and Updated) better?

    This book needs to be edited for audio, and it has not been. There are countless readings of web URLs, including the backslashes, that are maddening. Sometimes these go on for minutes. I don't get why the editor did not assume that most people listening to audio books are in their car, and not in a position to write things down. There are a number of other pieces of reference information that are also read during the audiobook. These should be left for the corresponding blog, that the user can browse when in front of a computer.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment


    Any additional comments?

    The audiobook contains endless anecdotes and quotes. Since the author spends much time discussing how we should ignore excessive information overload, I don't understand why he doesn't do the same. There are some really excessive 2 minutes quotes that are read, and at times I felt like I wanted to run my electric drill through my car radio.
    Good ideas become completely cluttered with useless information.

    Story
    "Am I really going to do this?"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I would recommend this to some of my friend who run their own business. It has some points that are worth examining. But as you go through this book, you will keep repeating "why is he telling me this?"


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    Most interesting: Ideas to streamline your business, so that you can have more time to do what you are passionate about.
    Least interesting: The droning on and on about brain quicken.. or starting some small business that you have no interest in setting up.


    What three words best describe Ray Porter’s voice?

    Frat boy gives advice.


    Could you see The 4-Hour Workweek: Escape 9-5, Live Anywhere, and Join the New Rich (Expanded and Updated) being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    No. No I could not see it as a movie.

    I enjoy learning through non-fiction books. My current goal is to read biographies of all past U.S. Presidents. Recommendations are welcome!

    Story
    "Is Your Career a Hamster Wheel?"

    This book helps the reader break down the barriers of societal thinking by bringing you back to the essentials. Do you remember why you put effort in each day? Or, have you lost sight of the end goal?

    Tim Ferriss helps the reader re-focus their commitments from their "job" to their goal. This is not a book about quitting your career and living in the woods "off the grid". On the contrary, it is a book about staying focused on your goals and finding the most effective ways to execute them.

    As most books do, it starts off a bit slow, but keep reading. There is a definitive sense of freedom that comes from completing this book. We must analyze our decisions with a cost-benefit method that asks: "am I receiving the most I can in exchange for my time and energy?"

    Personally, I have kept his words in mind while making decisions, and I am happy with the results. A must-read for individuals who are running in the hamster wheel of their career.
