"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)
I was striving for a four day work week and I thought I was doing well until I read this. to also think I thought the title was bulls... But when I read the book my eyes opened and my mind ran wild. I am starting a fresh . Thanks Tim
This is a book that you will visit over and over again. Not only is it inspiring but it is basically a blueprint to Chang the easy you do business and the way you live. My life will never be the same.
Although I do not see myself incorporating many of the suggestions, others I will. The book provides a wealth of information and resources. I encourage people to listen to it on tape. You will not be disappointed!
Success Coach that Loves to Learn! I personally think audible is a better investment than my Masters Degree. Hope everyone is AWESOME!!! :)
I am amazed how many poor reviews are out there about this book. I will agree the title is a bit desceptive but the information and resources in this book are well worth the small investment. If I were to say this book did one thing for me, it was to open my mind to posibilities that I had never thought of in both business and travel. The creativity the book sparked was invaluable.
I immensely enjoyed this book and plan on having my husband listen to it. This has helped to give me that extra push I need to get me pursue my dream job. Thank you so much Tim Ferris!
we have been going through the rat race all wrong. I learned that even just wanting to work for myself needs to be revamped. I love the idea of mini retirements. I just wish there were better "VA" options in the US. I don't like the idea and sensing more and more jobs overseas.
The listening of this book wasn't really easy for me.
Surely, there are very interesting parts and recommendation and the idea itself is a dream of many people and it's great.
However in my point of view, the interesting parts are mixed with boring and not easy to listen parts like packing recommendation, many websites and tools recommendations and I also didn't like the way of Timothy's writing. Honestly, I had a problem to finish the listening of this book.
Moreover, if you imagine that all or at least the most of people will follow these principles, it will make them not working because if everybody has time limit for reading emails, it will create significant delays in communication. If everyone wants to speak the first on a meeting to be able to leave later during the meeting, it will create a fight at the beggining and so on.
Despite it I would probably recommend this book to the most people but I would tell them not to expect too much. The book has better reviews than it is.
