    "Redundant"

    I feel bad writing this review as I haven't posted a negative review for a book, ever. But after listening to this one for an hour or 2, I couldn't get past how redundant the message was. Every 5 minutes the author taunts you with his (or his friends) world travels, and how you should just pick up and go travel the world. This books is definitely guided by the authors past travels, but I didn't catch any tools or plans to help live life differently.

    Maybe that comes later in the book, but again, I couldn't get past his redundant rambling on his own life. It's cool, you work where you want and when you want. I get it, just don't keep repeating it every other paragraph!

    "Good Partner to 4 hr work week"

    If you liked the four hour work week, you will like this book also. The tone and narrator are much friendlier than in the four hour work week. There are less how-to examples, but more theory and positive messages. Just like 4 hour work week, it will re-set the way you think about your career and life. There is a stronger "give back" message in this book as well. I am a small business owner that spends all my time trying to get my business to run without me! I get closer every day, but not there yet. Reading books like this one reminds me of my purpose.

    "Good concept; Not the best execution"

    The author seems to have lived some kind of magical life in which he's done amazing things that most people wouldn't attempt, all without negative consequences. Good for him, really! But I would have liked to have some advice for people like me who want to bring some less dramatic forms of non-conformity into their lives.
