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.

Critic Reviews

"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)

Excellent even if you just apply 20% of it.

Just like the Pareto equation, this book will change your life even if you apply 20% of its contents to your life. Some of it you may not be able to do because of your career or goals. Some of it will require a very open mind, but I can reassure you that even at that 20% you will change your life to a better one. Priceless.

Phenomenal

At this point in time, this is the best book I have ever read/listened to. It will change the way you think about work-life balance. Also if you aspire to travel. This book is a MUST!

Outdated tools and horrible narration

Narrator sounds like a robot, I couldn't make it through to the end. He even spells out long web links including the http://. Also very outdated now as many of the tools mentioned either don't exist or have better substitutes today.

It's ok.

It's ok, but nothing new that I don't already know. The author tends to ramble much without any meaningful subsistence in his material.

Life-changer!

This book has the power to help you break free, if you let it. Even if you don't let it, Tim's ideas for liberation will be splinters in your mind nagging you to go for it! Highly recommend!

Tough to listen to since there are many recommendations for external resources

I'd recommend actually buying the physical book for this reason. It will be easier to follow.

What a motivating book!

This is the kind of book that makes you want to be somebody. Not just a clock punching wannabe

lazy

I became very bored after the third or fourth chapter. Definitely one of those books I couldn't wait to be through with.

Highly recommended

I've been lucky to travel the world having the job I like. This book exceeded my expectations and inspired me to do more with my life. It has a lot of practical recommendations on how and where to start. I recommend if to everyone I know. I wish I read it 10 years ago. Thank you, Tim!
