My favorite non-fiction book this year has been Tim Ferriss' The 4-Hour Work Week. In December this year, the book will come out in a new, expanded version, and I can't wait to get my hands on it.
This book is actually what got me started on changing course in life. I want more out of life, and by using the principles in Tims book, I believe I can get it. That's not saying I will only work 4 hours a week. Not by far - but that's not even the intention of the author. If you haven't read the book, or at least heard about it, I strongly encourage you to take a look at it. He's got some really out-of-the box thinking going on. Tims love for and approach to languages is something I loved from the first minute and I've started doing some language reactivation of Italian and German following his principles. More about that in a later post.
The new version of The 4-Hour Workweek includes:
- More than 50 practical tips and case studies from readers (including families) who have doubled income, overcome common sticking points, and reinvented themselves using the original book as a starting point
- Real-world templates you can copy for eliminating e-mail, negotiating with bosses and clients, or getting a private chef for less than $8 a meal
- How Lifestyle Design principles can be suited to unpredictable economic times
- The latest tools and tricks, as well as high-tech shortcuts, for living like a diplomat or millionaire without being either
That's more than a 100 pages of new, cutting-edge content.
I've devulged all I could find on Tim and his lifestyle design tips. The email detox philosophy he's teaching and practicing is something I work on every day.
Oursourcing, lifestyle design, automation and elimination of disturbing elements are some of the things he talks about in his hugely successful book.
Forget the old concept of retirement and the rest of the deferred-life plan–there is no need to wait and every reason not to, especially in unpredictable economic times.
Whether your dream is escaping the rat race, experiencing high-end
world travel, earning a monthly five-figure income with zero
management, or just living more and working less, this book is the
The 4-Hour Workweek teaches:
- How Tim went from $40,000 per year and 80 hours per week to $40,000 per MONTH and 4 hours per week
- How to outsource your life to overseas virtual assistants for $5 per hour and do whatever you want
- How blue-chip escape artists travel the world without quitting their jobs
- How to eliminate 50% of your work in 48 hours using the principles of a forgotten Italian economist
- How to trade a long-haul career for short work bursts and frequent “mini-retirements”
