The 4-Hour Work Week

Escape the 9-5, Live Anywhere and Join the New Rich

by Timothy Ferriss

Forget the old concepts of retirement and a deferred life plan. There is no need to wait and every reason not to, especially in unpredictable economic times. For living more and working less, this book is the blueprint.

This expanded edition includes dozens of practical tips and case studies from people who have doubled their income, overcome common sticking points, and reinvented themselves using the original book. Also included are templates for eliminating email and negotiating with bosses and clients, how to apply lifestyle principles in unpredictable economic times, and the latest tools, tricks, and shortcuts for living like a diplomat or millionaire without being either.

I have to say I've given it to a ton of people. I run into people all the time, both in law enforcement, friends of mine, folks that are struggling with their careers and trying to think about opportunities to see the world in a different way. No bullshit. I've actually given away about 10 copies of your book.

I just think it’s fantastic, and for young people I recommend The Four-Hour Work Week. I just love the possibility and the optimism in those books, and I love that you’ve kind of lived it in what you do. So, I actually start with those books a lot of the time.

I do talk about Four Hour Work Week quite a bit.
