Publisher's Summary

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

Start Publishing Notes' Summary, Analysis, and Review of Timothy Ferriss's The 4-Hour Workweek includes a summary of the book, review, analysis and key takeaways, and detailed "About the Author" section.

Preview: The 4-Hour Workweek is self-help guru and entrepreneur Tim Ferriss's first entry into the genre. Published in 2007, the book offers an alternative to the monotonous nine-to-five, 40-hour workweek in which many Americans have found themselves. Ferriss begins The 4-Hour Workweek by emphasizing that anyone - regardless of education, privilege, or age - can put his methodology to use in order to achieve the sort of leisured, mobile lifestyle he enjoys.

To set an example, Ferriss offers listeners a brief primer on his own history and achievements: he was born six weeks prematurely and held a series of odd jobs throughout his life including, but not limited to, a turn as a failed audiobook peddler as well as a summer stint as a cleaner at an ice cream parlor. Despite having a SAT score 40% lower than the average freshman, Ferris enrolled at Princeton with a major in neuroscience before switching to East Asian studies. While at school, Ferriss developed a knack for entrepreneurship, in turn providing a profitable outlet for his workaholic inclinations. Over the course of his time at Princeton he worked as a bouncer, developed and sold a speed-reading course, and was briefly employed by Berlitz, one of the world's foremost publishers of language learning tools.
