Gratitude!!

Words cannot explain my gratitude for having the curtain pulled back. what started with a personal health revolution is now finishing with this crown jewel!! I have been on a personal transformation from fat unhealthy lifestyle to a healthy one, thereby introducing me to the food industry at its lowest; giving me the desire to go further into the information side of things. I know I am rambling but let me make my point. I work a full time job with the bank that I have whittled down to part time hours in order to afford me the time to become a human guinea pig for diet and lifestyle. for ages I have been looking to exit the rat - race but age of 34 with 3 kids has me scared to pull the cord..!.until now!! ur comprehensive hands on how to/autobiographical/documented trail and error testimonials come together in such symphony to such a desiring and exhausted individual, my gratitude abounds!! I am writing this in terrible format and improve because had to give the feedback while fresh on the brain!! i just finished the book and feel so charged!! For me it was never about idol time rather time to persue happiness, passions, family time and a much bigger agenda for helping others with my life, a way to pay it forwatrd!! I hope to share this book and my personal experience as I transform my life through ur guidance telling everyone along the way!! i want to help others in the samenway you have dedicated yourself to high intensity learning and assimilating the info into the most effective version I can, so coming across your book has been so inspiring in so many ways!! I cannot thank u enough Tim Ferriss!! hope to make u proud as I push to join the NR!! -With My Humble Gratitude

Good Ideas

There are many ideas I could use. I wish it wasn't so heavy with business acronyms and overwhelming online website lists. A lot of it was kind of dry.

Money grab

This book is a money grab. Complete and utter disregard for the fact that this works for 1% of the population. Luck would be a better title since simply this is the case for this author. I have done may jobs both white collar and entrepreneurial. This is for people looking for an easy way out. U b the judge but my take is ridiculous.

Overwhelming & inspiring!

This book has great info and outside the box thinking. It might not be for everyone but it definitely gives you ideas.
There's a lot of information so I would buy a hard copy and also listen to it cause it can get pretty overwhelming.

Overall pretty good though :)

The most transformative book I've ever read!

It has great advice on career and personal life. It's filled with great resources to make the dream come true. For all tense and purposes it is a roadmap to a better life. it's not fluff like most books in the genre.

Not that good

His advice is not really inspiring. The depiction about him in the book makes him sound like an arrogant person. Not sure I would recommend this book to anyone...
