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.

    "Superb!!"

    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!

    "I thought this was an amazing read."

    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.

    "Life changer of you let it."

    This book should be part of every educational institutions curriculum in the world, from primary school to University.

    You owe it to yourself it to yourself to live the life your really do deserve and can have. Apply the principals in this book and live your best possible life.

    I'm going to use it to help me make the lives of millions of people better and safe.

    Believe!

    "a must read"

    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.

    "I'd love for Tim to read his own book. "

    it lacks some personal flare. however, the information is practical and beneficial. definitely not a one time read.

    "lazy"

    I became very bored after the third or fourth chapter. Definitely one of those books I couldn't wait to be through with.
