Publisher's Summary

4 -Hour Work Week, by Timothy Ferris | Summary & Analysis.

A smarter you in 15 minutes. What is your time worth?

In these times, the economy is unpredictable; people need to do away with retirement concepts that don't work for their life plan, if there is no proper management of income. It doesn't matter whether one is earning huge salaries, or living a humble life.

This audiobook has been designed to teach steps to be taken in a luxurious lifestyle. The author has further elaborated this by giving Tim as an example. Initially, Tim used to earn $40,000 annually, but later on he started earning the same amount on a monthly basis. Further, the audiobook teaches you how to outsource your life abroad, by embracing virtual aid which will cost you only five dollars per hour.

Moreover, it touches on how people can travel without necessarily resigning from their jobs, ways of eliminating almost half the amount of work you do in two days, by use of principles of a forgotten Italian economist, ways of trading in a career that requires a long haul for work, that are short with busting and frequent mini-retirements.

Don't waste your money.

It's a horrible summary, weird formatting, hard to follow. I decided to get the full book instead.

Summaries lose too much important content

I think that this kind of summaries leave out content that justify, exemplify and explain how you can use a method to improve.

This kind of books rarely tell you something really new, but the way they frame it and explain it helps you to adapt part of your life to such concepts. A summary leaves too few time for reflection

Confusing

What disappointed you about The 4 Hour Work Week, by Timothy Ferriss?

I've not read the original version and was hoping to get a good overview of the book. But this was very confusing, difficult to follow. I didn't get anything that was of real value. Disappointing.

Personal review

Very useful regarding setting up your own standards in life as opposed to following the norm
