"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)
The information provided in the audio book left me wide eyed and scrambling for paper and pen. I am very pleased.
Anthony Robins is close, but falls short of providing hard core facts on how to and who too
No favoring. All good.

Have a pen and paper ready. Wear headset or find a quiet place to absorb this book.
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.
Do you read the book before you dislike my reviews?
After watching Timothy Ferriss on :"A Day In The Life (Hulu)", I was interested at reading The 4-Hour Workweek. I wished that I hadn't because it's not realistic at all, unless you have unlimited funds.
"I made 40k a month and I was still not happy... Too much work." Just quoting Ferriss.
Basically, you outsource everything without doing any work and check your email once a week and be antisocial. The book is an infomercial for Dot Com's. Ferriss has no work ethics. He uses other people and dot coms for day to day tasks.
I gave 5 stars on performance just because Ray Porter (narrator) portrays Timothy Ferriss as a douche.
I can only imagine that Porter's performance is accurate.
