    "Listen to every URL you never dreamed of"

    Overall, I really, really like this audiobook with one GLARING exception: it lists hundreds of URL resources in a way that is almost useless. It would have been a great companion document or something that we could skip over chapter by chapter without missing ACTUAL narrative content, but jamming it in as if you don't know that audio and written materials are fundamentally different is a mistake in my opinion. I wonder if TFerriss would have listened to this past the halfway mark when it became really monotonous.

    "Worth the 15 hours."

    Great book and great reading. I found it disconcerting to hear someone other than Tim Ferris read his own book after having listened to him for so long, but Ray Porter did an excellent job.

    "Good ideas, but narrator ruined it for me."

    The book has several good ideas that I will keep in mind. However, the narrator ruined it for me. The voice came across as a guy bragging about his life (and it wasn't even Mr. Porter's life!). A humber voice would have given the book a very different, even inspiring, feel to me.

    I lose patience quickly with arrogant people. Apparently, it has to do with their voice.

    "Life Changing Book"

    The idea in this book really resonate with me. There is also a ton of great resources for helping to accomplish goals in the books regardless of whether you want to be part of the new rich. Thanks Tim!

    "Will forever change your beliefs about working"

    I honestly think this book was written for me. It speaks frankly about what NEEDS to change and why it MUST change. Any simpler a concept and the author would be doing it for me. Read it as many times as necessary to make you act.

    "Buy the Actual book..."

    I do not want to give such a bad rating because the book is actually not bad at all... The problem is that it references SOOOO MANY websites and information that it is NOT an easy listen whatsoever as you need to be copying stuff down all the time.... You WILL get tired after a while listening to all the info he gives you while you are driving to work... It gets exhausting.
