The 4 Hour Workweek

He makes 40,000 dollars a month and works 4 hours a week....
My initial reaction to this kind of info is usually something along the lines of "Bullshit!" or "Who cares?!"
I really don't care how much money anyone makes and I think that the idea of making money as some kind of status symbol is meaningless, not to mention completely unfulfilling...
Which I suppose is why I think this book "The 4-Hour Workweek" by Tim Ferris is OUTSTANDING!
It's not about making money...although it could help you make a lot more....
And it's not about working less.....although it has realistic and achievable ways to work less....A LOT less...
More than these things though, The 4-Hour Workweek is a book about freeing ourselves from the old paradigm of working yourself into the ground over the largest part of your life only to finally have some free time at the end to enjoy yourself!

I think it'll quickly become the bible for the 'New Rich' - the people who decide that they will not work for works sake and will cultivate lives that are fulfilling and exciting. The new currencies are fast becoming time and energy and this book helps show how you can have more of both and all whilst not losing your ability to earn (and in fact increase it!).
From mini-retirements to outsourcing the mundane tasks in your life and automating business processes The Four Hour Workweek is a handbook for reclaiming your most important possesion....time!
