Have you heard of Tim Ferris? I hadn’t until I read the 4 Hour Work Week.
That was about 4 years ago now and it changed my life. I just listened to the audiobook again to revisit some of the topics.
Some of the things Tim says are pretty outlandish and not realistic. An example is outsourcing your work to India or other country where the labor is cheaper. Not many people can do that.
At the same time, some of the things he says are very true. For example, turning off the annoying Outlook popups each time a new email comes through. Turn it off!! That was such a distraction for me! I mean how can you work when you are getting email popups ever 5 to 10 minutes?
I thought this book was a quick read that had a lot of practical ideas. A lot of his ideas are also backed up well by stories and examples. The content really gets you thinking. It’s one of those books.
Whether you are someone who is climbing up the corporate ladder or someone with their own business, this could be a book that changes your life! Are you ready for that?!
I liked the 4 Hour Work Week so much that I even read another one of his books called the 4 Hour Chef. This book is very similar to the 4 Hour Work Week. Similar meaning how to accomplish things faster and more efficiently.
It’s not a book just about cooking, but about learning and lifestyle. If you liked the 4 Hour Work Week you will probably like the 4 Hour Chef.
He also has another book called the 4 Hour Body, but I haven’t read that yet. It’s on my list however, so will post a review when I get around to it.
In summary, I really liked these books and thought you might be interested. Here is a little more background about the author from Wikipedia.
If you’ve read either book, I would love to hear your thoughts!
