Format: Hörkassette
Did you know that if the trends of the last two centuries hold, everyone's workweek will be four hours by 2407? What will people do with all that free time? It's a good question that this book recommends you consider.

Mr. Ferriss does a favor for those who hate their jobs but cannot find work they like by explaining how you can still draw a salary while working very few hours (by hiding from the boss and using the 80/20 rule -- 80 percent of results come from 20 percent of efforts). His method is deliberately manipulative (possibly fraudulent is another possible description that comes to mind), so you'll have to watch out that you don't get caught or you might have to repay some of that salary.

What do you do while you are hiding from the boss? Mr. Ferriss recommends starting a highly profitable online retail business that's so highly automated it can be operated in only four hours a week. You'll find details of how to do this that matches what I receive in lots of spam e-mails every week.

After you've got half a million a year rolling in by selling expensive items at a high profit margin, Mr. Ferriss provides lots of advice on how to take six-month miniretirements in cheap places around the world (Argentina and Berlin are his favorites). I'm still puzzled by why Berlin can be a cheap place to live. The rest of Germany when I've visited certainly isn't.

The book's come-on explains how Mr. Ferriss has accomplished all kinds of world-class things to boost his credibility. Unfortunately, you'll find that it isn't always classy how Mr. Ferriss does this. For example, he won the Gold Medal at the Chinese Kickboxing National Championships in 1999.

Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
Timothy Ferris demonstriert in seinem Buch einen neuen Ansatz zur Lebensgestaltung ("lifestyle design"), der stark autobiographisch gefärbt ist. Der Ansatz basiert auf 4 Schritten, die er mit dem Akronym "DEAL" zusammenfasst:
- D=Definition: Eine neue Einstellung (im Sinne von Mindset) aufbauen. Kernforderung ist hier, das 9-to-5 Modell mit dem Lebensziel eines Ruhestandes (retirement) in Wohlstand aufzugeben und demgegenüber das Modell der "New Rich" zu adoptieren. Dieses Modell kombiniert Arbeit und Auszeiten ("mini-retirements") zu gleichen Teilen.
- E=Elimination: Ein radikales Zeitmanagement schafft Freiräume für andere Dinge als die Arbeit (allerdings nicht Faulenzen!). Zwar sagt Ferris, Zeitmanagement sei Quatsch; die dargestellten Empfehlungen sind allerdings eindeutig in typischer Zeitmanagement-Literatur zu finden (80/20, Prioritäten etc.) Allerdings empfiehlt Ferris eine sehr radikale Anwendung dieser Prinzipien, was seinen Ansatz durchaus originell erscheinen lässt.
- A=Automation: Hier geht es darum, ein Geschäft (die konkreten Beispiele sind hauptsächlich Internet-Versandhandelsaktivitäten) aufzubauen, dass mit möglichst geringem Aufwand betrieben werden kann und so einen stetigen Cash (In) Flow garantiert. Ferris wird hier sehr konkret und beschreibt detailliert ein mögliches Vorgehen. Während einige Hinweise auch allgemeinen Charakter haben (z. B. wie man vermeidet, dass die Marge erodiert), ist vieles eher für Internet-Entrepreneure gedacht.
= L=Liberation: Sich schrittweise aus dem Job "zurückziehen" (= Anteil der Home-Office-Zeit erhöhen) und die Zeit für "mini-retirements" nutzen.

Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
No big surprise what Tim Ferriss promises in this book: A new, simple way to make money (and lots of it) with just four hours of work every week. The thing is, it's not new, and anything but simple. Of course, his "secret" is to found an Internet business. Nevermind the fact that every single day, thousands of new websites are created, with dozens of them selling something. Nevermind that online marketing is expensive and that in order to sustain a niche, you need to have a solid product that cannot be replicated easily. (Did I hear "patent?" Sure, if you can afford a patent lawyer.)
I'm not against e-business ' not at all ' but you need to be determined, and have at least some knowledge about business to make it work; not to mention the countless hours you have to put in before that business can get started ' far from a 4-hour workweek. Even so, just because it is scalable (a point that is very important to Tim), doesn't mean you will automatically have thousands of customers. And I won't even talk about his ideas on outsourcing, which are basically true but, again, ignore the fact that these things cost money.

The adage always stays true after reading such books: There are no shortcuts in life. (Other than illegal activities and cheating; Tim Ferriss seems to be very fond of the latter')

On to his claim that it's possible to live anywhere. He recommends booking last-minute flights, since they're cheap; but didn't we already know that? Now, is it feasible to live anywhere on a relatively tight budget? Sure. While having a great lifestyle? Forget it. The reason why living is less expensive in many parts of the world is because they have little to offer of what might be called "western lifestyle." Unless you'll be staying in a hotel, which is expensive, anywhere.
