3.0 out of 5 stars A good rather than exceptional book, 27 July 2008
The book is interesting and well written and can be red in a couple of days. The author offers good insights into his professional career. The message of the book is: live your dreams, rather than trying to make money at all costs.

5.0 out of 5 stars Potentially life changing, 8 Jun 2008
The material in the book might not be all completely new, but overall Tim Ferriss manages to condense a lot of very interesting concepts into a well structured view. He makes his points very clear and gives out very valuable information for all those who are dreaming of unconventional lifestyles.The style too is energetic and inspiring.

The author gives the impression to genuinely want to help people fulfill their dreams, even if at some points of the book he tries to promote some of his products (e.g.: the pxmethod for speed reading, which is quite expensive, if compared to buying a book from Tony Buzan).
The supporting material on the website is also very interesting and, above all, useful.

2.0 out of 5 stars Mostly "Common Sense" Tips, 8 Jun 2008
This book might sound full of new and fresh ideas for people who have never really traveled independently in their lives. I am a experienced low budget backpacker myself and find all the material in the book just "common sense", non-inspiring and boringly written. Especially the bullet points and the vagaboding voices look to me only very weak parts, only to bulk up the total number of pages.
