Timothy Ferriss spoke at a management meeting last week where I work. A few of the managers came back pretty impressed, so I cadged a copy off of a manager and skimmed/read it one sitting Friday night. The effect of this book is like being trapped in a room with a manic-depressive during the manic...

EDIT: I've left my original opinion below. However, as time has passed, I don't really think I can recommend this book as anything but entertainment. Anything useful has been written elsewhere, better, and by people who aren't lying to you. ----- I hesitantly recomend this book. The reasons why are...

At first I thought this was the bee's knees, toes, and ankles. But as I read further I began to realize that this guy "wins" by cheating, "delegates" by leaving everything in the hands of his $5/hour personal assistant in India, and sells books by promising to tell you how to get rich, and delive...

Instead of focusing on this book's lame contents (it was really bad) I decided to share my review of how it was otherwise used in the hopes that it might inspire others. First of all, I found the book's paper a little rough in texture. This precluded it from being used in the outhouse or camping,...

I don't know how else to put it. Timothy Ferris is a douche. There is, in fact, an entire genre of blog literature that explains why Timothy Ferriss is a douche. Even New York Times columnist Frank Bruni got in on the action. Since I already heard Ferriss' insecure egocentricity on full display d...

A few weeks ago in NYC, I sat with two of the smartest people I know at a cool brunch. "But explain it to me," I said. "Just what is it about the 4-Hour Work Week that we haven't already seen?" Having a background in a "work-smarter-not-harder" industry (the coaching industry), what I'd heard abou...

Let ME save YOU a few hours. 1. You're a game changer and a rule breaker. 2. Quit checking your fucking email and get off the computer. No, seriously. Go. 3. Outsource everything--even your soul. It's all about you. 4. Retire, vacation, go mobile. 5. Tim Ferriss is an ass. Questions? Ryan: Hey Tim, I w...

I found this book on a recommendation from a good friend, and if it wasn't for that I might have put it down right away, because the tone is very markety, and the author makes a lot of big claims with little substance. That being said, the author must be a smart guy because there is a lot of good...

Although mr. Ferriss has some good ideas and goals, there is one word that describes why, I am not a fan of this book: Scumbaggery. While I totally agree with Tim Ferriss, when he says that most meetings are useless and should be avoided, I cannot agree with his recommendation of making up excuses...

I just started this book, and I can't even finish it. Aside from the author grating on my last nerve with each page turn, I find his outlook on life to be overly fantastical. This book appeals to people who are working in dead end jobs that are hellish to say the least, and offers a way out to pe...
