Summary

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 and 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.

I'm glad I believed the other reviews...

A very good book for a non-professional like me. This is one of the better "Dummies" book that I have purchased. After reading it cover to cover, I felt like I just finished a college course on the subject. Highly Recommended!

Not just free time but let you be free to change places ever so often since you won't be tied up to one place by your work. Once you reed it you will question and reevaluate your whole life and work. Set a clear path and direction towards more relieved future.

Great

Incredibly thorough with great particulars, not flippant or perhaps scratching the symptoms as perform most "Work Less" guides.
Great memory joggers on a lot of things that we have to remember to be able to implement.

Great read!

Whats not to like? The book follows its own advice and gets to the point quickly by removing unnecessary bloat found on most self help books. This read was absolutely worth the small amount of money I paid to read it on Kindle and worth more because it reinforced what I already thought was true but was afraid to accept.

Great audiobook.

Simply love Tim Ferriss’s work. The way his mind is constantly out of the box. Everybody talks about this book for a reason. It’s a no brained, YOU NEED TO READ IT. It teaches you so much and you even have little exercises to fill in order to see how it’s theory applies on your life.

I recommend this book to all my friends.

I recommend this book to all my friends constantly, it goes beyond just concepts and it actually gives you the ground work to get started. This is one of those books that will go beyond teaching you something, it will teach you how to implement what it is teaching you as well! Loved it!!!

I read "rich dad poor dad" right before this book.

I read "rich dad poor dad" right before this book so I was already in the right mind set of working towards financial freedom. This book is geared more towards action and putting its teachings into play in real life.

Well explained, thought provoking.

Well explained, thought provoking, but understand this, if you are looking for an overnight fix for your woes? not going to happen. Tim's instructions and concepts are well thought out but you WILL have to put effort into results. For those seeking easy riches and wealth beyond their imagining? not going to happen.. you will have to put forth time and effort, but Tim does very well in his teaching.. I am working on implementing new ideas that his book helped to create.
