Timothy Ferriss is a guy that knows what he wants and he doesn’t mind telling the rest of us how he got it. He does this in his book “The 4-hour workweek”. I read it, I liked the ideas about not being stuck in the hamster wheel, still I find some of the approaches he takes are a bit to much about one-self and not for the greater good of the world. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not a great person that has empathy for everyone. But I do not like the “low-salary countries outsourcing” Timothy is so keen on. Sure I could start a company try to optimize it to spend as little time on it as possible, but moving to a country where it’s cheaper, just so that I can get more luxury isn’t my dream. Whilst the book caters to the needs and wants of many persons I’m disqualified because I don’t really feel like re-locating or traveling that much and I dont approve of the master suppression techniques that is part of his gospel.
Still I’d recommend the read, the book makes you think and forces you to evaluate your standpoint in life. I had to, and I grew a bit as a person.
