The New York Times bestselling author of The 4-Hour Body shows readers how to live more and work less, now with more than 100 pages of new, cutting-edge content.
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, or earning a monthly five-figure income with zero management, The 4-Hour Workweek is the blueprint.
This step-by-step guide to luxury lifestyle design teaches:
• How Tim went from $40,000 per year and 80 hours per week to $40,000 per month and 4 hours per week
• How to outsource your life to overseas virtual assistants for $5 per hour and do whatever you want
• How blue-chip escape artists travel the world without quitting their jobs
• How to eliminate 50% of your work in 48 hours using the principles of a forgotten Italian economist
• How to trade a long-haul career for short work bursts and frequent “mini-retirements”
The new expanded edition of Tim Ferriss’ The 4-Hour Workweek includes:
• More than 50 practical tips and case studies from readers (including families) who have doubled income, overcome common sticking points, and reinvented themselves using the original book as a starting point
• Real-world templates you can copy for eliminating e-mail, negotiating with bosses and clients, or getting a private chef for less than $8 a meal
• How Lifestyle Design principles can be suited to unpredictable economic times
• The latest tools and tricks, as well as high-tech shortcuts, for living like a diplomat or millionaire without being either

Awesome book with one complaint
I love the book. It was a great easy read and has definitely made me think about how I can more automate my income and business to give me more time and money to do the things I enjoy.
My only negative regrading the book is the minimalist or somewhat small thinking in terms of the end goals. For most, maybe extended travel would be enough to satisfy or a simplistic lifestyle jet setting with low cost fares would be great but for those of you who want opulence and riches beyond belief the book will help you get started and may get you there but it plays down the idea of true wealth too much. To some the goal is to not simply do but to so so opulently as well.
Still, I found the book highly insightful and helpful and plan to put the principles, and there are many, to use immediately. Great read.
Great for young adults
As a twenty year old college student, life happens fast. You can get so caught up in everything to do and lose track of what you could be. This book has been a real eye opener. I have been feeling as though my life has been missing some happiness and purpose. This book has given me the wisdom to slow down and ask the hard questions. Very eye opening and well written!
This is a must-read if you’ve ever questioned if there was something fundamentally flawed with the 9-5 life. The answer is in this book!
