    "A different take on life"
    What did you love best about The 4-Hour Workweek: Escape 9-5, Live Anywhere, and Join the New Rich (Expanded and Updated)?

    I had no idea there was a whole world where virtual assistants existed. I can't wait to put such a resource to use.

    "Great book"
    Would you listen to The 4-Hour Workweek: Escape 9-5, Live Anywhere, and Join the New Rich (Expanded and Updated) again? Why?

    A must read for anyone working or unemployed. It teaches self discipline, tricks of the trade to manage whatever business you have. I'm considering to buy the paperback, to get easy access to the web links and phone numbers.

    "Dreadful Disappointment"
    Would you try another book from Timothy Ferriss and/or Ray Porter?

    Absolutely not!


    What was most disappointing about Timothy Ferriss’s story?

    I should have read the reviews. He's a narcissistic human being with no original thoughts. All of the theories and principles are borrowed, and then woven together in a patchwork which is regurgitated for the reader. The common thread? His egotistical stories in which he is the hero, fooling and controlling others to meet his own needs. Ferris would say that his manipulations are meant to free the reader to enjoy life, but the price of these games could well be relationships and finding enjoyment in everyday life.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    None.

    "Awsome!"
    Would you listen to The 4-Hour Workweek: Escape 9-5, Live Anywhere, and Join the New Rich (Expanded and Updated) again? Why?

    This is an amazing audio book!!, I bought the hardcover and my husband stole it before I could start reading so I decided to get the Audio and it is even better!! It really has changed my life and how I see my future.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I was happy to get a chuckle every now and then!!

    "I learned, therefore, I liked"

    Again, I am glad that I listened to this book because I would not have lasted through reading it. I am glad to know what it's about, but I have mixed emotions about his approach and motives, including use of a muse. At least of few of the ideas can be eaily applied to my busy life for immediate positive benefits. I am not sure what would happen to the old-fashioned work ethic if everyone followed this approach, but....

    "I guess its Ok"

    Personally I did not like the author's content nor style; however based on earlier reviews, some do. Too folksy for me, but I think some of the information does work.

    "Not For Christians"

    This guy is a potty mouth. I couldnt listen to it all the way through. He has some decent thoughts and inspiring stories, but I really wonder if he ever does get around to telling people how to have a 4 hour workweek. He talked about the 80/20 principle, but I could have learned about that by buying 80/20.
    It's hard to believe this guys language is so trashy.
    Very dissappointed.
