Tim Ferriss is an extraordinary young man on a mission. The twenty-nine-year-old serial vagabond and successful entrepreneur has been teaching a wildly popular course at Princeton University: a how-to and why-to guide to throwing out the old methods for success (balancing life and work, retiring well, having a great nest egg) and replacing them with an entirely new way of living. The 4-Hour Workweek explains what a lifestyle entrepreneur is and why you should want to become one. It teaches you how to kill your job and design a life, the 80/20 rule and how it increases productivity, how to replace your dreams with goals, and more. Listeners can lead a rich life by working only four hours a week, freeing up the rest of their time to spend it living the lives they want. The 4-Hour Workweek shows and explains what is a lifestyle entrepreneur and why you should want to become one, how to kill your job, how to design a life, how to replace your dreams with goals, the 80/20 rule and how it increases productivity, how to add life after subtracting work, how to DEAL--Define, Eliminate, Automate, and Liberate--and how to find your muse. There is no reason to wait to live the life you want.

When you look at the title: "The 4- Hour Workweek" you can't help but think it must be some sort of scam. I certainly did. I couldn't be bothered to even look at the book when I first saw it on a bookstore shelf. Months later, when I was bored and browsing my library for an entertaining audio book, this book stared at me again. And this time I decided to give it a listen. From the first pages on, the author T.Ferris drew me in. He starts out by sharing his own story from "grossly overworked and severely underpaid office worker to a member of the New Rich". Ferris is only 30 years old, yet he has started multiple businesses and learned a few lessons in the process. One of them being: "Work smarter not harder" (I know, that's a new one.) He explains that the members of "the New Rich are those who abandon the deferred- life plan and create luxury lifestyles in the present using the currency of the New Rich: time and mobility." According to Ferriss our society has it all wrong. We work our butts off for 40- 50 years in the hopes of enjoying life once we hit retirement. By doing that we miss out on life and what if we never get to retirement? For that reason the author proposes to start an income producing business that bothers us as little as possible. He gives the exact steps on how to find the right business. One where you will be able to take yourself out of the picture and let other people run the business for you. Sounds scary, but his ideas seem to work. And obviously this principle has worked for him. Ferriss also included some chapters on Time Management (How to be more productive with less time), Cultivating Selective Ignorance (Only consume information from TV, newspapers and online sources if you will use it for something immediate and important),the Art of keeping people from interrupting you, and best of all a chapter on how to outsource your life. Overall, this book had some great ideas and it will certainly help you to redefine what success looks like to you. I doubt you will only work 4 hours a week, but you might become more productive with your time and learn to enjoy life while it's happening.

I figure, having been ...
I figure, having been unemployed most of this year, I'd see if there were any suggestions in this book that I could actually apply into the kind of career I actually want to do. Well, that and it was free on a holiday promotion. There are words to describe my opinion of this book, however most of them would break the terms and conditions of this site. Suffice it to say, it's one big sales pitch for being an egomaniac, passive agressive jerk. It boils entirely down to outsource or eliminate anything you can, any way you can, handwaves at "creating" businesses with no actual, practical advice on how to determine a market need (which is the hardest part of any business: Figuring out what's needed in the first place!), and then spend lots of your time places where the exchange rate makes you comparatively rich.Not even worth free.

The 4HWW isnt a book ...

The 4HWW isn't a book about doing nothing and relaxing. Tim writes about how he changed his lifestyle so he could pursue what made life interesting for him. Tim writes about abandoning the deferred lifestyle plan (waiting till retirement), the currency of the New Rich- time and mobility and maximising the 80/20 rule- focusing your efforts on the 20 percent of things that create the moth results. What makes the book really interesting is all the examples. Tim doesn't write about hypothetical examples, he writes about what has worked for him.

Some very good parts to this book, and generally a quality examination of productivity and what's important versus looking busy and being a materialistic zombie.However, there are many "Carlton Sheets Late Night informercial" parts to this book, and the martial arts example early in the book sounds like playing basketball against 7th graders.

The 4-Hour Workweek is...

The 4-Hour Workweek is an eye-opening book. Should you take everything in it at face value without questioning it? Of course not. Should you read it with an open mind and learn new things and new ideas that apply to you? Definitely. Although there is a lot of resistance and denial, especially among older generations, the work and career environment has changed radically in the past few decades, and old models simply aren't in touch with modern realities. While I would recommend this book to anybody, I'm especially eager to get it into the hands of young adults who are likely to be misinformed by parents, counselors, and others who are guiding them toward career paths that may have worked in the past but are unreliable (at best) today.

Tim Ferriss bends all ...

Tim Ferriss bends all the rules of the American workforce. By starting his own product-focused company and outsourcing as much of the process as possible, he remains free to travel the world and have all kinds of fantastic adventures. The lifestyle is probably not for everyone -- for one thing, it's not exactly a piece of cake to start a reliable business. But the tips are handy, regardless. It's a must-read for overstressed start-up founders, mobile technology workers, and anyone who wants more out of life but needs tips on the execution.
