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.

Some Great Ideas In Search of an Editor
Timothy Ferriss has some brilliant ideas in this book — however the problem is that as an audio book his writing is all over the place. Add to that a lackluster voice actor and you get an audio book that's hard to listen to all the way through. It's amazing to me that a book which has some great time management tips has them carefully hidden in thirteen hours of meandering reminiscences of dancing the tango and being a sports star. I don't blame Tim, but I do blame the editor who didn't know how to shape a narrative as well as Blackstone whom couldn't be bothered to tweak the text of the book to sound a bit more intelligible when read aloud. My recommendation is to skip the audio book read the eBook instead...
This isn't just a book - it's a Lifestyle
I have listened to the audio book of the 1st release no less than 4 times and ended up buying the book so I could bookmark all of the pages. My wife bought me this new one for my birthday and I'm very excited. We have been building our personal lives and businesses around Tim's advice and everything is going just as planned. Tim, thank you for everything you do! ~ a loyal follower
