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.

What the Critics Say

"It's about time this book was written. It is a long-overdue manifesto for the mobile lifestyle, and Tim Ferriss is the ideal ambassador. This will be huge." (Jack Canfield)

    "join the new rich"

    There is a considerable amount of good product placement, but a good reference guide to changing the way you think about income, wealth, and how you can choose to live your life.

    "Whatever You Want"

    This book is very focused on reducing your work to travel the world.

    While I don't (at this time) feel that this is my path, I do see how this plan can make your time open up in a way that will allow you to do virtually whatever you want.

    There are a lot of slow parts of the book that read off lists of websites and their descriptions, so it's a good idea to follow up at tim.blog to fill in things you can't write down while driving or in transit.

    "Excellent read"

    Once is not enough, I'm immediately beginning again. Wish I'd found this much sooner as I feel like I'm years behind where I could be. Better now than never though

    "Not good for Audible"

    There are too many web addresses which makes it hard to understand. There should have been a revision when putting this out as a Audible book.

    "Wow oh wow"

    I was hesitant to read this because I thought I'd be motivated to make some changes. Let's just say I was correct in my assumption. #getthisbook

    "Sucks and scam"

    I'm listening and reading this, no real content that's applicable. Only information detox is worth a try

    "Disappointing"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    When Tim Ferriss described how he cheated his way into a victory at an athletic match in China, my heart sunk. I wondered who many Chinese people shrugged their shoulders and muttered, "damn Americans". Such a stereotype of the Ugly American he let himself become when he represented his country in such a shameless fashion. When he describes this deceit as confidence boosting, I had to turn it off, what could I possible learn from someone who thinks like that? I'm still is a bit of shock that someone with so little concern for honesty or fair play found his way into my library. This book is going back!

    "fairy tales of life hacks"

    The hacks are feasible but not desirable some of the sites mentioned are useful but ultimately unless yo are single most of this stuff is unobtainable in reality without various trials.
