Why wait a lifetime for your retirement when you can enjoy luxury now? Whether your dream is escaping the rat race, experiencing first class world travel, earning a monthly five-figure income with no management, or just living more and working less, this book is the blueprint.

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 per cent of your work in 48 hours using the principles of a forgotten Italian economist; how to exchange your career for life for short work bursts and frequent ‘mini-retirements’; how to train your boss to value performance over presence, or kill your job (or company) if it’s beyond repair; how to cultivate selective ignorance – and create time – with a low-information diet; how to get free housing worldwide and airfare at 50-80 per cent off; how to fill the void and create a meaningful life after removing work and the office; and learn about this and more to live the life you want – now.

This was an extract from the book review of The 4 Hour Work Week when the book lanched in the UK in April 2008.

Tim Ferriss does a favor for those who hate their jobs but cannot find work they like by explaining how you can still draw a salary while working very few hours a week. Ranging from elimination, automation, use of the 80/20 principle (80% of results come from 20% of the effort), outsourcing your work and use of virtual assistants, Tim explains how you can apply these lessons and work a 4 Hour Work Week.

Since the 4 Hour Work Week was published in the US, in 2007, many people have adopted these principles to have a series of ‘mini retirements’ taking extended breaks to travel or spending time with their families.

This has been a very important book for me. I purchased The 4 Hour Work Week shortly after it was launched in the UK and have implemented many of the principles described in this New York Times best selling book. For example, my first website for The Big Red Tomato Company was completed in India for $200 and the logo designed in Argentina for $3o. Costs in the UK would have been significantly more.

Since 2007 when the book was originally written, the world has changed. Global financial meltdown has led many people to realise that neither jobs or pensions can be guaranteed and consequently many people are taking control of the situation and doing something about it and adopting thr principles in the book. Many of these inspiring stories are captured on Tim’s website .

Based on the lessons in these stories, Tim has updated and revised the book with case studies and updated resources for office automation and virtual assistants. You can read our review of the revised edition here.
