The 4-Hour Work Week: Escape 9-5, Live Anywhere, and Join the New Rich (Hardcover) Price: Rs.1194

Based on Ferrisss controversial lectures at Princeton University, this resource shows how members of a new subculture use simple loopholes and tactics to escape the 9-5 workday, live anywhere, and join the New Rich, with complete freedom of time and place.

What do you do? Tim Ferriss has trouble answering the question. Depending on when you ask this
controversial Princeton University guest lecturer, he might answer:
\"I race motorcycles in Europe.\"
\"I ski in the Andes.\"
\"I scuba dive in Panama.\"
\"I dance tango in Buenos Aires.\"
He has spent more than five years learning the secrets of the New Rich, a fast-growing subculture who has abandoned the \"deferred-life plan\" and instead mastered the new currencies--time and mobility--to create luxury lifestyles in the here and now.
Whether you are an overworked employee or an entrepreneur trapped in your own business, this book is the compass for a new and revolutionary world. Join Tim Ferriss as he teaches you:
- 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 freuent \"mini-retirements\"
- What the crucial difference is between absolute and relative income
- How to train your boss to value performance over presence, or kill your job (or company) if it\'s beyond repair
- What automated cash-flow \"muses\" are and how to create one in 2 to 4 weeks
- How to cultivate selective ignorance--and create time--with a low-information diet
- What the management secrets of Remote Control CEOs are
- How to get free housing worldwide and airfare at 50-80% off
- How to fill the void and create a meaningful life after removing work and the office
You can have itall--really.

Read with your discretion!

I just finished reading this book. I have a mixed feeling about this book.

In summary, it is an interesting book to read. I recommend everybody to read it with your discretion and get a ???meaningful??? life. This book is one of the most popular books on Amazon.com and it is like ???Dilli Laddu??? ??? you will repent if you read or otherwise!

Detailed review:

I really liked Tim???s writing style (although narcissistic at times): direct and funny! He blends his life experience with some important concepts from many books by famous authors like Peter Drucker, Seneca etc.

Detailed review:

I really liked Tim???s writing style (although narcissistic at times): direct and funny! He blends his life experience with some important concepts from many books by famous authors like Peter Drucker, Seneca etc.

Tim shows how 80/20 rule(80% of results you get from 20% of efforts) can be effectively utilized in prioritizing our tasks. He provides some valuable strategies for managing our time, e.g., limited reading of unnecessary information from newspapers(media fasting!), checking e-mails only twice a day and gradually reducing it further and so on. I agree with Tim that - although technologies like e-mail are originally intended to help us saving/managing time, it is an irony (or shame!) that the same tools are taking away great deal of time from our life!

To get used to less comfortable scenarios, Tim suggests you to complete so called ???Comfort Challenges???. One of them for example: going to vegetable market and bargaining to improve negotiation skills and to get used to say ???No???. There are some ridiculous and funny ones which are difficult for a normal person (I mean, sane) to practice: suddenly lying down on the roadside when you are going with friends! According to Tim, this challenge is designed to help doing your way, not following others!

The book provides many tips for entrepreneurs, e. g. planning the distribution before the product, how to market the product and so on. Very good.

My main gripe about the book is that it teaches you to resort to unethical tactics to get what you want. Throughout the book Tim suggests you to be pretentious and lie, e.g. when you call a celebrity you tell that you are big fan and act like you are nervous to get through! Another example of bending the rules and behaving soul-less when he recommends you to decrease the productivity in the office work to bring enough contrast in performance to negotiate remote work! It is nauseating at best. So, I decided to deduct two stars from my rating.

So, why do I recommend you to read the book?

Because, it has some excellent gems spread in a lot of dung. One has to read many books and put more efforts to mine these gems. Pick your gems! Also, if you don???t read - I am sure - you will miss some fun from Tim???s way of saying things!

Super relevant read for employee and employer alike

I'd heard about the book a while ago and finally decided to pick it up. Incredibly eye-opening read.

the book does seem written for a particularly first-world reader but the principles are readily transferable to pretty much any economic situation.
