    "Great Resource"
    Would you be willing to try another book from Timothy Ferriss? Why or why not?

    Yes, I think he has a lot of good information and tips. Very resourceful.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No. It is entirely too long for one sitting.


    Any additional comments?

    The book was very good and had a plethora of resources. Some of the stories seemed a bit long and dragged on in making the point. The testimonies were a bit too long for my liking as well. However, it is well worth listening to it and going through even the long, drawn out parts. It is full of practical information that is applicable on many levels. I feel that my knowledge has increased from listening to this book. I will apply some of them.

    "Some interesting concepts"

    It had some very interesting ideas. There were also a lot of parts that were irrelevant to me it dated that could be skipped.

    "Looong"

    I liked how much insight this guy had on how to become as efficient as possible. It taught me a lot of lessons and is currently helping me rethink and rework the way I live. What I did not like was how long and drawn out some of the dry periods were. Tons of lists of things. I understand they can be used, but it was like a recipe book in audiobook format. I'm not cooking some of those recipes.

    "Worst book I ever heard"

    What a waste of time.. Not even close to what u want to hear.. This book is useless Unless you already have a cash flow. Even if u have a cashflow set up, this book is no more than a glossary of websites and phone numbers. Hate it
