I found myself wanting more though. More scope, it seems small parts have been focussed on and other parts fast forwarded. The final chapter read a bit like an essay conclusion.

Forget the old concept of retirement and the rest of the deferred-life plan - there is no need to wait and every reason not to, especially in unpredictable economic times. Whether your dream is escaping the rat race, experiencing high-end world travel, earning a monthly five-figure income with zero management, or just living more and working less, this book is the blueprint. Includes more than 50 practical tips and case studies from readers (including families) who have doubled their income, overcome common sticking points, and reinvented themselves using the original book as a starting point.

I like audiobooks that are narrated by the author. They are read in the same energy as how they were wrote; you begin to understand and keep track of the text when you feel someone is genuine about reading it to you. I'll still listen to it but I feel it'd have been more engaging if it was read by the source. But I guess that's what the 4 hour work week is all about :)
