    "Good Book, Poor Reader"

    This is a great book. However they used a computer voice instead of an actual person. Didnt like the way this audio book sounded.

    "Absolutely Amazing!"

    This audio book has opened my eyes in ways I never would have imagined. After listening to it more than a dozen times, I visited my local bookstore and purchased the hard cover book as well, because of all of the invaluable references tools. This audio book is very well researched, and I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to improve their life by actually having enough time to enjoy it.

    "for douches"

    the narrator talks like a douche. I thought I liked it at first, but his doucheyness rubbed off on me and I started acting like a douche and it made me depressed. if you're a douche, you'll like the audio book version. if not, stick with the print version

    other than that the book is one of the best productivity books out there. highly recommend

    -not a douche

    "A book that wakes you up"

    This book is great because if might make you realize how your life plans might be outdated and flawed. It might throw light on areas that maybe you thought made some sense (such as the question "do I really need to work this hard?"). The ideas are not new, but the way Tim Ferriss puts them together and presents them, makes you get excited about the possibilities. A warning, though, you have to get past the style of the author, and ignore what might seem like constant bragging. Just listen to the entire book and take what applies to your life.

    "Excellent even if you just apply 20% of it."

    Just like the Pareto equation, this book will change your life even if you apply 20% of its contents to your life. Some of it you may not be able to do because of your career or goals. Some of it will require a very open mind, but I can reassure you that even at that 20% you will change your life to a better one. Priceless.

    "horrible"

    Read the negative reviews on Amazon. I'd bet a significant % of the good reviews are paid for.

    "Life changer"

    "What a load of bunk! Poor reader choice too!"
    Would you try another book from Timothy Ferriss and/or Ray Porter?

    Doubt it


    What was most disappointing about Timothy Ferriss’s story?

    Copy any of the previous and sensible reviews and [insert here]. Total bunk and hogwash!


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    I hate computer generated readers. But, I could see how it was impossible to get anyone worth their salt to agree to read this nonsense.


    What character would you cut from The 4-Hour Workweek: Escape 9-5, Live Anywhere, and Join the New Rich (Expanded and Updated)?

    Timothy Ferriss and/or Ray Porter


    Any additional comments?

    Copy any of the previous and sensible reviews and [insert here]. Total bunk and hogwash!
