What a great read... in a nutshell: "Do what you love to do; outsource the rest."

Ferriss is an inspiring persona and provides us real-life tools of how he was able to attain utopia--a four-hour work week (4HWW). However, my passion does not resemble a product that I developed or redesigned, that could be converted into a mailorder business... unless I start re-packaging my favorite whole bean coffee from the Okanagan Valley, brand it organic, fair-trade and bird-friendly.

Alas, for those of us in middle to upper management in a traditional organizations, a 4HWW is not readily attainable. For many of us in these roles, we have at least 6 persons reporting to us and you, in turn, report to another person (or maybe more in a matrix responsibility organization)... and they have at least 4 or 5 peers. The normal command and control organization, where work is done in teams, meetings and in person does not lend itself to a 4HWW.

We are then left with three options:

1) Muster all of your formal, informal, political influence and combine with a bunch of emotional fortitude (all guts; no fear)... and start a mini-revolution to redesign the way you work with your team and your boss(es).
2) Quit your job and engineer that new iPad app that doubles up on "Angry Birds"
3) Take pieces of Ferriss' techniques and apply them to your current job (take the "act first, prove it, ask forgiveness later" approach)

EXECUTING SOME OF THE TECHNIQUES
IN A NORMAL WORK WEEK
I elected to pusue #3 (with some forwarning) and have undertaken to implement or have already implemented several of the below. So far, my productivity has risen dramatically, OT hours dropped and more time devoted to family and personal hobbies.

Tim Ferriss is a very creative guy. He wasn't content with the status quo and decided to do something about it and create a life on his own terms.

The book is a great and easy read. It is valuable because it shows that there are many solutions that are easily achievable but may not be "obvious". Yet they are obvious to others, to Tim Ferriss. This books shows you those creative options and for that it gets three stars.

The reason why I do not give it more stars is that it "promises" a life of easy riches. It plays on the basic human emotion, the desire to become rich quickly and stop working so hard! If we all worked 4 hours a week, would our economy still function? Or is there a chance that the author is promoting some method that would get quick riches on the backs of those other people? Like your uncle who didn't see this book and was dull enough to work 20 years hard labour... The methods used and proposed in the book fail to have a moral compass.

It also fails to discuss the difference between what people think will make them happy and what actually does make people happy. I would recommend reading "FLOW" by Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi to get an answer to that question.

Overall it is a useful book for those who want to start a small business, get some ideas, I would recommend it just don't get carried away in the hype. The title is just an attention grabber...

Amazing book! And it was good to read it again as I purchase the first edition.
It wasn't clear to me what was added to this new version. It seemed exactly the same as the first edition, other than a few additions of some of Tim's Blog posts from his blog. I was expecting a bit more efforts to boost the revised edition with new material...
But again, it's still worth every penny!

Tim Ferris takes time management and turns it into a how-to-guide for taking responsibility for your own happiness, well being and self actualization. He enthusiastically and insistently encourages us to get off our lazy butts and start living our lives, instead of passively squandering hundreds of minutes, hours, days and weeks engaged in mindless wasteful distractions that can trick us into thinking we are actually doing something useful. Put aside the fear and stagnation, start living. His tips and strategies are empowering. Thanks to Tim.

This is not a lazy-man's guide to business, although that is the way it talks to get people to read it. This book is a "reality hammer" for people to wake up, open their eyes, and see the business world as it really is, full of higher tech allowing better work, smarter work, and above all, the elimination of wasted time.

I own successful businesses & this book was totally different from the snooze-fest that most business books have become ... it challenges the ordered business structures completely and challenges the person.

It tells you to wake up and smell the coffee, to look at your work and get objective. Further, it tells you to look at yourself in the mirror and get objective. I read it once ... then read it again a week later. Literally standing in my office looking at my desk with the piles of projects and assorted work for different companies I put the content of this book to work for me.

Virtual assistant: a Godsend. If you are a businessman without a virtual assistant you are an idiot. That said, I was an idiot putting off what technology gives us today, a smart, hardworking, tech-savvy assistant that goes through work like a chainsaw. There is no project that cannot be done better by a good virtual assistant. Examples: Organize all your photos including your business photos (personal), suggest additions to your LinkedIn community by researching peers (business), build up research your genealogy & family tree (personal), suggest books and ebooks to read for an upcoming lecture (business), collate and organize that book you have always wanted to write (personal), coordinate your calendar (business), organize birthdays w ecards for same (business + personal) ... the list is endless ... all at $13 per hour though I pay a little more.

This book is a welcome wake up call.
