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.

Funny, witty and informative. I enjoyed his cocky edge. Packed with great ideas and resources. Worth the listen!
I really enjoyed this audio book. The content is great and the reader is perfect. Thanks!
It's a motivational book.
Although I enjoyed the humor and the stories of Tim's "amazing" life style, he leaves out details on the work that has to be done to maintain his life. I also think that this book is obsolete now and reads like a rah-rah you can do it kind of book. From my experience (since this book was written in 2007), any online enterprise needs to do a lot of marketing and promotion on a daily basis, especially because you are competing with everyone else trying to drive traffic to their own sites and products. You wouldn't be very successful these days by living and working Tim's lifestyle described in this book because the SEO practices are changing constantly and because your work will be lost among social media experts that spend all day shouting their brand across the webverse.
Obsolete fluff and too simple.
