Publisher's Summary

Please note: This is a summary and not the original book.

Tim Ferriss is the author of The 4-Hour Workweek, a New York Times best-seller that incorporates the Pareto Principle and Parkinson's Law into a lifestyle of reduced working hours and more personal free time.

After graduating from Princeton University, where he earned a degree in East Asian Studies, Tim started his first business selling nutritional supplements at the age 23. Since selling his business, he has become a Guinness Book of World Records holder in tango and a host of his own program on the History Channel.

The 4-Hour Workweek is Tim Ferriss' first book. Detailing his personal experiences of success and failures in "lifestyle design", the book provides listeners with a clear road map on how to outsource mundane work, reduce clutter and information overload to create smooth income streams and more free time.

The author believes that pursuing dreams and goals now is more important than deferring them until after retirement, and his book promotes a variety of lifestyle design options that give listeners exciting alternatives to the ordinary nine-to-five routine.

This book is really amazing for me :)



So far I am enjoying this book, and believe and agree with the principles. I think anyone can benefit. I appreciate that the legwork has been done for finding help in other countries that can be trusted.

I enjoyed listening to this book!



I enjoyed listening to this book because of the different information provided on doing things in life. The most important thing I would consider when reading this book is that it seems to teach you about marketing over the internet and selling very niche type products.

You've got to buy this book!



While not all of Ferriss's lessons will apply to everyone, the ones that surely will certainly make this book worth buying. There are few books that leave me with a warm and fuzzy feeling of pure optimism and inspiration, but this just happens to be one of them. If you have an entrepreneurial bone in your body, you've got to buy this book!
