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)

    "Truly transforming!"

    I loved this book and will most likely listen to it numerous times again. It has lit the fire under me that I needed to move even bigger mountains in my life. Thank you so much for such a great book!

    "Just 4 Hours Huh!?!"

    A definite READ! Wish I would have cracked it open sooner. Not just a book to listen to or read just once! Soooo much material to study! I surely will be listening again and more importantly IMPLEMENTING what I can to fit my family's goals and lifestyle desires!

    "Eye Opener with a Wealth of Information"

    The "4-Hour Workweek" is a well-written book that opened my eyes to a world of possibilities. Having lived the rat race for 20+ years, and owning a million dollar business for the last 7 years, I've experienced both sides of the track. In both scenarios, I still feel chained to my work with minimal time to travel and do the things I enjoy. This book is the key that will allow me to open a multitude of doors that have been difficult to pin-point from searching the web. Not only does Mr. Ferriss explain how he and many others surpassed their dreams, but also provides step-by-step tips on how to do it in various industries and scenarios! I highly recommend it.

    "Great and Practical"

    Tim Ferris has earned my respect for this truly inspiring and practical book. I have been practicing some of his principles but I am ready to take the full dive.

    The narrator has a great voice and tone making this a very easy read. I am buying the hard copy to reread and take notes for reference.

    "Essential Read For Young Entrepreneurs!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes. This book, more than so many others, helps you understand how to become location independent and escape the 9-5 slavery of the corporate world.


    Any additional comments?

    Listen to this book with a critical ear, as some of the ideas presented are not as easily implementable as they are written out to be. Nevertheless, this book is a must read for young business minds to start thinking outside of the box and find out how to become part of the New Rich, as Tim likes to call them.

    "Life-changing book"

    I own a couple of service-based companies and I work typically 60 to 80 hours a week. I was already in the process of automating several aspects of my business when I read this book in March 2016. To say that it has changed my life is putting it mildly. I've now executed even more automation than I originally had planned and now I work approximately 20 hours a week which is more than four however it is a good start for me. I have a virtual assistant in Bangladesh for three dollars an hour who does 95% of all the work in my real estate business. My next step is to fix my email problem. I get about 100 to 150 emails a day. 99.9% of them are not important or urgent. I will soon start delegating that to my stuff so I no longer have to deal with those time-consuming minimum-wage activities. I have never in my life read a book twice but I plan on reading this one again immediately.

    "Life-changer!"

    This book has the power to help you break free, if you let it. Even if you don't let it, Tim's ideas for liberation will be splinters in your mind nagging you to go for it! Highly recommend!
