This has been sitting in my "to-read" shelf for a while, but I finally bought it when I was reminded about it by a friend. Even though i'd heard a lot of critical acclaim for this, I set my expectations low: just another self-help book.

Well, I'm happy to say that I was wrong. This is a unique little book which has opened my eyes in many ways, forcing me to ask the difficult questions, and take control of my destiny. When I usually read something like this, I expect to pick up one or two useful ideas or thoughts which might help change my life in small ways. But this felt, ESPECIALLY in the first half of the book (i.e., the first 2 sections), like it was throwing legitimate interesting and potentially life-changing questions at me every couple of pages. I've NEVER experienced something like that before.

Like other reviewers, I was a little underwhelmed by the second half. As a package, it's still VERY good, but the second half is quite obviously more US-centric and didn't leave me with as many moments where my jaw was dropping or the gears in my head were turning.

I'd recommend this to anyone. I'm currently in the process of throwing it at my partner and telling all my friends and family about it. No matter what age, I think we can all learn something useful from this.

It seemed to me to be hard going. So much so, that when I got to a passage that said "you don't have to finish a book, if you feel you are getting nothing out of it; stop reading". So I did just that and gave up!

I'm sure that there are some wonderful insights in to time and business efficiency, but you appear to have to wade through porridge to get to them.

Great book. Lots of interesting information and perspectives. I've watched Tim Ferris on YouTube a few times and decided to get the book.

It's well-written and easy to understand, and I get how some people could apply this to themselves, but was finding it tough to apply it my situation. If you're stuck in a dead-end job with a feasible product idea (it was more aimed at physical products, sellable products) then it'll work for you... but it also takes balls. Loads of balls.

I Loved this book. I have heard so many recommendations about this book but I never had the time to purchase the book so I can read it. This book has enlightened me, I actually have more time not only to read but enjoy life too, I have still a long way to go. The book raises a lot of good questions, who says we have to work 9-5? Why does two different jobs need the same amount of hours? why wait until you retire to have some fun? then you are too old to have any fun!!The the life you want may be cheaper than you think, for example, you don't need to spend over 200k to own a a lamborghin, you can rent one for 2k a a month.

Excellent book. A real eye opener and a challenge to the accepted norms that we assume and accept as "life".
This book is both informative and practical, inasmuch as you can take steps to move towards a self defined goal that you set.
Definitely worth purchasing if you are looking for a change from the 9-5 mundane cycle of daily life.

Mind opening book as to what the future could hold. However at times there is a consistent stream of hyperlinks to external websites that smell of them being paid links.
