Book #52 of 100: 4-Hour Workweek

by Trish

in book record, brilliant, reading

Another repeat, but a book worthy rereading if just for the same carefree, dare to dream spirit of Timothy Ferriss. The 4-Hour Workweek is one of those books that found many critics, endured much good-natured (and some not so good-natured) ribbing when it appeared. Many people scoffed at the claim, but it’s really one of those books you have to sink into and let it take you where it will. Let the book drive, in other words.

Ferriss’ thesis is simple: why are we doing things the way we’ve always done it? Why not do something different?

That, alone, is worth reading the book for. The best innovations and ideas come when we strive to do things differently than everyone around us. For that, this book gets to my 2009 book list (I’m now reading it for like the twelfth time) and so it should get to your book pile. Just read it, see what you think, let it seep into your brain.

Grade: A+ (I’m not a groupie, but this book is just that good to make you think)
