    Story
    "Will Change Your Life If You Act On It!"
    What did you love best about The 4-Hour Work Week?

    Timothy Ferriss has a simple yet supremely powerful way of approaching life that leaves no doubt that working 40-100 hours a week for someone else will only ruin you.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The 4-Hour Work Week?

    Each chapter has unique steps and thought-provoking questions to drag you kicking a screaming out of your cave and into the light, where you can examine yourself and realise where you can improve and / or take action.


    Have you listened to any of Ray Porter’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I haven't listened to Ray Porter before, but he speaks this book very well - it sounds as if Timothy Ferriss is actually talking to me!


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Joining the New Rich is easier than you think!


    Any additional comments?

    AWESOME!

    "A Real Game Changer!!"

    Really make you think differently about life, how you work and what is important. Not sure I'll get to the fully integrated model Tim propose, but st least it has kick started me in developing new web site that we will test and hope to develop our business with.

    "Inspriational!"

    Warning! Do not read if you are not prepared to take some action... if you do then you will find that the situations that used to be quite bearable suddenly become less so. All of a sudden you will be able to see more...

    This is a fabulous book filled with some great ideas. The narration is good though sometimes the list of websites/resources does become a little repetitive. Whilst these lists make sense in the hard copy, in audiobook form they are less useful.

    However you won't be disappointed with this book and it will take you to new places...

    "Overrated"

    I must say I fell for this audio book as it sounded ideal to me; Though, even with giving it 1 star this book is considered overrated. There is no such thing as a 4 hour week for the general populace as much as I would have liked it to be so. What is the point of fantasizing about something that is not going to be achievable. If it is for entertainment purposes that you are thinking of getting this audiobook then by all means get it, it sure beats boredom! Enjoy life!

    "The best self help book I have read"

    Forget about piling millions of useless cash in the bank, that is sooo last year. The new rich are having all the fun and don't need millions to do so. This is an entertaining and highly recommended guide book on how to escape the rat race realise we are not slaves to anyone.
