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.

    "Struggled to Finish"

    Don't get me wrong, this book has a lot of good information, however in the audio version it's very tough to listen to a couple hours of references that would be a lot easier to just look at on a web page. I think most of the stories and ideas were kind of disclosed in the first half of the book.

    "coming from a 25 year old entrepreneur... loved it"

    coming from a 25 year old entrepreneur or so I call myself I loved it. actually used to not like books at all until I found this Audible app. this book actually made me laugh multiple times which is very hard to do. not to throw a pity party but I'm actually a recovering heroin addict and this book gave me hope for a better life. Five stars across the board and Encore.

    "The start of a new life."

    I've never called something a "must read book" before, but this is definitely a must read.

    "What an A$$h0L3"

    This guy touts himself as accomplishing so much in life with the claim that he broke no rules doing it. While technically that may be true he's a reckless deuche bag with a complete disregard for other people. This book is a pile of bull.

    "Way too long and redundant"

    This book started off great; however after the first couple of hours I was stuck hearing the same stuff over and over again just in different words.

    "terrible narrator"

    lot's of great information and content. unfortunately, the narrator has a speach impediment and over-emphasizes which makes it tough to listen to. I have to listen in small slices and go to other books for long periods to keep my sanity. I recommend the printed version.
