Summary:

Tim Ferriss is an extraordinary young man on a mission. The twenty-nine-year-old serial vagabond and successful entrepreneur has been teaching a wildly popular course at Princeton University for the past four years: a how-to and why-to guide to throwing out the old methods for success (balancing life and work, retiring well, having a great nest egg) and replacing them with an entirely new way of living.

The Four-Hour Workweek explains what a lifestyle entrepreneur is and why you should want to become one. It teaches you how to kill your job and design a life, the 80/20 rule and how it increases productivity, how to replace your dreams with goals, and more. Listeners can lead a rich life by working only four hours a week, freeing up the rest of their time to spend it living the lives they want.

The Four-Hour Workweek shows and explains:
• What is a lifestyle entrepreneur–and why you should want to become one
• How to kill your job
• How to design a life
• How to replace your dreams with goals
• The 80/20 rule and how it increases productivity
• How to add life after subtracting work
• How to DEAL: Define, Eliminate, Automate, and Liberate
• How to find your muse

    Great book. One of the few books I have listened to multiple times. It's dangerous. Might convince you to take risks that the non-NR might consider stupid.

  • Katarzyna Lewczuk

    Love this book! And the narrator, Ray, is perfect!

  • Evan Doggett

    This is a must! Really well narrated, funny, insightful, helpful, cured by times, but really an amazing book if you want to remove the mundane and replace it with freedom. While the reading of the website addresses can get to be a bit much you might be greatful to hear them. I am going to purchase the hard copy as well :)
