The 4-Hour Work Week: Escape the 9-5, Live Anywhere and Join the New Rich

In the world of self-promotion, Tim Ferriss is a phenomenon and a legend. In the world of working lifestyle change, he is one of the beacons of the alternative working lifestyle movement. Most of us will have heard of his blog and book “The 4-hour Work Week” and thought that there was a catch. And maybe there is. But the catch is that you have to get out of the comfortable rut that we all find ourselves in, and try something new in the hope that it will chance your life.

The book is derived from the successful blog of the same name, and is grouped into four main areas:

Definition – Where you reset your lifestyle choices, and decide what you really want to do.

Elimination – Where the non-productive aspects of your life are removed so that you can focus on the important stuff.

Automation – Where the boring (but important stuff) is outsourced so that you concentrate on the interesting stuff.

Liberation – Where you finally make the leap into a new lifestyle.

The book is a series of mini-examples which guide you through the process of changing from living to work, to working to live. This is a book that can give you a new lease of life that ultimately benefits you and the people around you. The challenge is not what you need to do to maintain a 4-hour lifestyle, rather the courage you need to make that leap from a comfortable 8-hour/day routine. This is the book that might just change your life and make it happen.

Go on and do it, because you might find it actually works!
