This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.
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

I don’t think you need this book,
It’s content can be found online.
Lots of Hyperlinks and Repetition, But Worthwhile
30% of the book is comprised of hyperlinks to sites that the author thinks are interesting. Of the remainder, there is a good amount of repetition of philosophy about work/life balance and there is encouragement to live a particular lifestyle. It's a decent book and it motivated me, but I was turned off by certain parts.
Don't believe this awful book
This book is absolutely horrible and dangerous. My husband and I purchased it after he retired from the military and it's the most delusional, unrealistic and dangerous advice we've ever read. The author is a self serving, deceiving manipulator that makes money off of lying to people. It's completely disrespectful to hard working people that actually care about others and their families.
