Publisher's Summary

Forget the old concepts of retirement and a deferred life plan. There is no need to wait and every reason not to, especially in unpredictable economic times. For living more and working less, this book is the blueprint.

This expanded edition includes dozens of practical tips and case studies from people who have doubled their income, overcome common sticking points, and reinvented themselves using the original book. Also included are templates for eliminating email and negotiating with bosses and clients, how to apply lifestyle principles in unpredictable economic times, and the latest tools, tricks, and shortcuts for living like a diplomat or millionaire without being either.

What the Critics Say

"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)

    "A must read/listen"

    The best take away from this book is how to transition out of your 9 to 5 job by transitioning into a remote position

    "better book than audio book"

    An enjoyable even entertaining listen but...for all intents and purposes of harnessing and implementing the strategies outlined here, one would do well to get the book and visit the blog.

    "Brilliant, usable advice"

    If you are an entrepreneur, this is a must hear. The advice is straight out of the modern playlist, action items of the self employed's handbook.

    "Decent Listen"

    Best narrator I've ever listened to. Some really good tips in here. Lot of filler info that I wasn't interested in though.

    "It's ok."

    It's ok, but nothing new that I don't already know. The author tends to ramble much without any meaningful subsistence in his material.
