4.0 out of 5 stars Full of great ideas, 26 Mar 2010
This review is from: The 4-Hour Workweek: Escape 9-5, Live Anywhere, and Join the New Rich (Hardcover)
I was told about this book as it seems I was already living a little like the author ie home working, working from abroad etc however on reading it I was far from a 4 hour working week! The ideas in this book would be difficult for most people to follow in full but even if you took some of them, you could drastically save time and use it for yourself. Many of the websites are for US use as are many of the analogies and examples however if you get the general idea and use google to find UK equivalent services, then you can gain a lot. So since reading this I have outsourced to india, I have an administrator in ireland and I use a variety of free IT services to make my life easier. So read this book. Im off to the gym and for a coffee.

How do the local people now out of a job feel about this? Sorry to be political, but this whole book is predicated on gutting local economies for the benefit of a handful of people. And we wonder why UK plc is in such a sorry state.

Hi Michael,
I'm sure you must get asked this often, but I've got to ask.. Aren't you worried about 'out-sourcers' actually stealing your business? I think I would have difficulty allowing my privacy laid open to others, but the thought of 'business secrets' being pinched is scarey! How do you ensure you are safe? This must seem naíve to you no doubt. I love the thought of just leaving things to an outsource, but could they not simply try to steal your customers?
