Publisher's Summary

Please note: This is key takeaways and analysis of the book and not the original book.

The 4-Hour Workweek: Escape 9-5, Live Anywhere, and Join the New Rich is a manifesto calling for workers everywhere to rise up and flee their cubicles in pursuit of a life guided by their passions and not their paychecks. It offers a practical, step-by-step guide that can be followed by people who are not independently wealthy but who don't want to be slaves to their jobs until retirement. Whether a person is an entrepreneur or an employee, he or she can follow this path. However, the steps to doing so will vary slightly. The American work culture is inherently flawed. Every day, millions of people willingly sacrifice the best years of their lives in service of a retirement that is decades away. Instead of embracing a desire to learn and grow throughout their lives, they work jobs they hate so that they might one day be able to relax in old age....

    "lackluster"

    i felt it was lacking, perhaps the original was also. basically, don't check your​ email accept on a schedule, automate or hire people to work for you, and work from home.

    "Worthless"

    Totally pointless, not worth the money, credits and/or time. Guess it serves me right for trying to find a shortcut to a book about shortcuts
    Wish I could return it

    "The word "Analysis" is used way too often!"

    Struggled to finish as the word "analysis" at the start and end of every sentence was way too annoying to listen to. Usually love Tim Ferriss material.

    "Good Summary"

    Good summary. Feels like I got most of the books ideas delivered to me.

    At one point at the end, the summary calls the author's practices 'unethical', but I found that to be a little too opinionated on the summarizer's part.

    "A helpful summary!"

    this is a great summary if you don't feel like you need to be convinced that there are serious problems with the American work culture. I also Imagine That reading the book might be enjoyable in other ways but my goal was to understand his point and for that, this shortened version was fantastic.
