The 4-Hour Workweek Reviews

    Timothy Ferriss spoke at a management meeting last week where I work. A few of the managers came back pretty impressed, so I cadged a copy off of a manager and skimmed/read it one sitting Friday night. The effect of this book is like being trapped in a room with a manic-depressive d...

    EDIT: I've left my original opinion below. However, as time has passed, I don't really think I can recommend this book as anything but entertainment. Anything useful has been written elsewhere, better, and by people who aren't lying to you. ----- I hesitantly recomend this book. Th...

    At first I thought this was the bee's knees, toes, and ankles. But as I read further I began to realize that this guy "wins" by cheating, "delegates" by leaving everything in the hands of his $5/hour personal assistant in India, and sells books by promising to tell you how to get rich,...

    Instead of focusing on this book's lame contents (it was really bad) I decided to share my review of how it was otherwise used in the hopes that it might inspire others. First of all, I found the book's paper a little rough in texture. This precluded it from being used in the outhou...

    Let ME save YOU a few hours. 1. You're a game changer and a rule breaker. 2. Quit checking your fucking email and get off the computer. No, seriously. Go. 3. Outsource everything--even your soul. It's all about you. 4. Retire, vacation, go mobile. 5. Tim Ferriss is an ass. Q...

    A few weeks ago in NYC, I sat with two of the smartest people I know at a cool brunch. "But explain it to me," I said. "Just what is it about the 4-Hour Work Week that we haven't already seen?" Having a background in a "work-smarter-not-harder" industry (the coaching industry), what...

    I don't know how else to put it. Timothy Ferris is a douche. There is, in fact, an entire genre of blog literature that explains why Timothy Ferriss is a douche. Even New York Times columnist Frank Bruni got in on the action. Since I already heard Ferriss' insecure egocentricit...

    Although mr. Ferriss has some good ideas and goals, there is one word that describes why, I am not a fan of this book: Scumbaggery. While I totally agree with Tim Ferriss, when he says that most meetings are useless and should be avoided, I cannot agree with his recommendation of ma...

    I found this book on a recommendation from a good friend, and if it wasn't for that I might have put it down right away, because the tone is very markety, and the author makes a lot of big claims with little substance. That being said, the author must be a smart guy because there is...

    I just started this book, and I can't even finish it. Aside from the author grating on my last nerve with each page turn, I find his outlook on life to be overly fantastical. This book appeals to people who are working in dead end jobs that are hellish to say the least, and offers a wa...
