Do you dream of escaping the rat race, experiencing high-end world travel, earning a monthly five-figure income with zero management, or just living more and working less?

This audiobook is the blueprint to make that possible.

In this fascinating audiobook, read by Ray Porter, Timothy Ferriss details his road to financial success and the steps he took along the way. His plan is simple to follow, easy to apply and relevant for anyone looking to make a change.

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.

This step-by step guide to luxury lifestyle design teaches:

- How Tim went from $40,000 dollars 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'.

This new updated and expanded edition includes:

- More than 50 practical tips and case studies from readers (including families) who have doubled their income, overcome common sticking points, and reinvented themselves using the original book as a starting point
-Real-world templates you can copy for eliminating email, negotiating with bosses and clients, or getting a private chef for less than £5 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 was excited to finally having found the newest edition such that I could listen with my book at the same time. However, this is not at all the same. THIS IS NOT THE LATEST EDITION.

Tedious to listen to especially with the websites - refer the reader to 4-hour work week website, perhaps? Could have been summarised in 4 hours. There are lessons worth learning and taking action on.

The concepts and approaches are something which Tim has interpreted and found suitable for his routine and practices. I would strongly recommend all readers to have thorough understanding of concepts, before you apply on your lives. It can cause serious impact. You can use this book from a perspective to better manage and apply key principles to improve on your productivity. But be wise to apply it in the right way.

I have to say it went completely over my head. Feels like it is geared more towards office workers rather than the general worker. I guess it could be useful for self employed persons as well.

This is the book which made me to think another way to work. What is the corelation between work, money and time. Must read to come out from rat race.

Tim Ferris has some good humour incorporated into the book which is often difficult to achieve. Thoroughly enjoyed. Maybe a tad long and repetitive in areas but overall a good educator.
