    I grew up on Golden Age Radio, and while I love to read, I typically consume more books via audio thanks to a job that lets me listen while I work. As an aspiring writer, I try to read a great deal of non-fiction in addition to a variety of fictional genres. I especially love history, historical fiction, science fiction, fantasy, and old-style gothic horror.

    "Too Much for Less Extreme Lifestyles"

    All I have to say about this book is that when you dedicate to the idea of outsourcing your outsourcing, you have lost all touch with the personal flourishes that define how you operate. For the rest, this book is simply one giant commercial for every business, operation, and app that this guy uses. Not entirely useless information, but not exactly safe or practical in all situations either.

    "4 hour bulletproof lite edition."

    I think this would be a good book to give to someone who is very overworked and who is new to the 4hour workweek and bulletproof philosophies.
    I picked up a few good tips and made a note to follow up with some of the tools.
    This book doesn't say anything new but it's short enough to serve as an overview and not be annoyingly long.

    "Very practical and informative"


    Great book with useful tips. Some overlap with the "Four Hour Week" - but this book contained some new information as well. We'll worth the short read!

    "4-Hour Work Week meets GTD"

    Ari Meisel's short but informative books combines ideas from Tim Ferriss's 4-Hour Work Week and David Allen's Getting Things Done, though he doesn't explicitly cite the latter, into a practical, listenable primer on maximizing efficiency in your life.

    Meisel's refers to lots of specific tools and websites to help you achieve maximum efficiency. This is great in the short run, but I fear that as the book ages and some of these sites disappear, the book will feel dated.

    Still, there are enough universal principles here to make the book useful at any time.

    "Cliff Notes verrsion of 4 Hour Work Week"

    This is a great hands on application of most of the same principles in Tim Ferriss' 4 Hour Work Week. The difference is, this is short enough to sit down and start implementing in a day.

    "Very Informative"

    I enjoyed all of the information this book offers. The narrator did a great job. There are a lot of good tips to get your life into a stress free environment. Thoroughly enjoyed it and also enjoyed the $1.95 deal although I feel it is worth full price.
