Why Read It?:
While this book is now over a decade old, and it took nearly a decade of my best friend berating me to read it, the information contained within is still relevant, if not now more than ever before. Personally, over the past 6 years, I've been implementing a bounty of Tim Ferriss's strategies without realizing I was utilizing his tactics. That's a large reason why my best friend wanted me to read this book, and now why I'm telling you, you should too.
For you, maybe you'll learn some of these tactics and find ways to implement them in your own personal life. I mean, wouldn't you like to work from a view like this? I did, and you can too.
The 4-Hour Workweek seems out of reach for most, but you'd be surprised how a few small changes could create an entirely different lifestyle. Take it, from me, you CAN create a work/life balance that works for you. The tips and advice in this book can help get you there.
