I learned about Tim Ferriss from several videos that my friends had been circulating around my Facebook feed and from a few of his blog posts that I've come across after hours of random web browsing. After a little more research, I discovered that he had written a pretty well-known book called the 4-Hour Workweek. In the book, Mr. Ferriss describes his transition into what he calls the "New Rich" and the different ways he has created complete freedom for himself to travel and dabble in whatever hobbies strike his fancy. Since the book was only 2 or 3 dollars on Amazon and I was in need of a quick read I purchased the book to scroll through while waiting in line at various stores during my weekly errands. All I can say is wow. This book packs a ton of information into a very readable and entertaining format that I found very inspiring and difficult to put down!
Throughout the book, the author discusses a variety of topics including how to manage your time more effectively, eliminate distractions and waste from your life, travel well and often, and even how to create a business that will help earn you income while you do as you like with your time. From other reviews I had read I expected the book to give a very shallow and not necessarily useful view on these topics, but man was I surprised. In reality, the author takes you step by step through each of his processes and gives many alternatives on ways to get started. In addition, he includes real-life examples submitted from his readers on the ways they have applied his techniques to improve their lives. Although, not everything in the book necessarily applied to my situation, it most certainly had me thinking different on many of my current habits and considering new ways of living. I am excited to look into many of the services and ideas he recommended and I recommend that anyone looking to make any sort of change in their life give this book a chance!
