Pros: Decent background story makes it a little more 'human'      Cons: Too many played out concepts, no fresh concepts, simply bad ideas.      The Bottom Line: While I feel the author had good intentions, this book is definitely far more damaging for the average person than helpful.      I have been a long time reader of self help, motivational, and sales related books for as far back as I can remember, including parts of even …

This book funny on two levels. Level 1 is the author's wit. Level 2 is well, lets put it this way. Its nice to know that I have more on the ball than some of the people who let their publisists stick their names on this book as though it were the Seven Habits of Highly Effective People. (Whew you missed that bullet Stephen Covey, or maybe you actually read the book and declined the rec?)      As John McEnroe used to say, "ARE YOU SEEERRRIOOUUS?"      …

Any book that tells you not to quit your day job, but lie to your employer after getting them to let you work from home, while you are on a beach on the company's dime, is borderline criminal.    Work a full day like everyone else. If you can get above average work done for your employer in 8 hours, do it and demand compensation. If you can do an average day's work in 2 hours, you have not earned the right to steal from the company and slack off for 6 hours a day.    Most …

This review may be a lot shorter than many of those I've posted for other books, because frankly I'm still not quite sure what I think of "The 4-Hour Workweek." Certainly, it has given me a tremendous amount to think about -- not quite to the level of career-crisis-inducing life angst, but definitely enough to make me wonder about what I ought be doing, or am capable of doing, differently.    Perhaps the biggest obstacle to someone achieving the enviable lifestyle Tim Ferriss …

At least in the blogging circles I follow, it's been nearly impossible to not notice the book The 4-Hour Workweek: Escape 9-5, Live Anywhere, and Join the New Rich by Timothy Ferriss. It's gotten a ton of airplay online, so of course I had to read it for myself. There are some interesting ideas and options presented, but if you play the full program out to the logical conclusion, it breaks down at some point.    Contents:  First and Foremost: FAQ - Doubters Read This; …

Comes with warning, Do not read this book unless you want to quit your job! On first reading this book , I realized that this 29 yr old had written up all my secrets and more! But it took me 40 yrs of working to find it out! Very enjoyable book and I recommend it to young and old, unless you are one of those bosses that expect employees to tattoo the Co. logo on their butt. (Those type of bosses breathe life into the ideas of Karl Marx!) Of course this book is another part of the author's building …
