    hour workweek tim ferriss new rich highly recommend tim ferris rat race timothy ferriss thanks tim changed my life outside the box case studies time management lifestyle design per week hours per virtual assistants someone else step by step expanded and updated rich quickTop ReviewsMost recentTop ReviewsSam1.0 out of 5 stars terrible for starting your own business and living your lifeReviewed in the United States on August 1, 2018Format: HardcoverVerified PurchaseThe author attempts to promote his working lifestyle for the reader broken down in four steps. I have to start by sayings this book is written at a very low reading level and a lot of needless filler.

    The author breaks it down in four steps D E A and L
    D is for definition and is probably the only part of the book of any substance. If you’re under 23, naive, and never stand up for self you might get something out of it. It’s mostly work mindset a lot of people have developed over a year or so in the work world.

    E is elimination which is his time management section. Honestly there is some good advice , however,there are way better books on the topic. He advocates the low information diet which basically being willfully ignorant.

    A is for automation. In this section he advocates for first automating/ outsourcing as much in your life as you can to save time and money.

    But the main focus is setting up a business online that sells things of little value very overpriced and attempting to automate that. Having worked in online marketing, I can tell you the information here is outdated, vague, and not very thorough. If you want to set up a business online I would recommend reading a different book. He also advocates calling yourself an expert and teaching courses on topics you have no authority in. Ultimately, this is where the book falls apart as this is his central way to live the four hour work week, which if you take a look at his own life he isn’t living that way.

    For L is for liberation and I took his low information diet and stopped reading.

    Conclusion: this book is for naive, weak, dummies who hate their jobs and will take any terrible advice to give them hope. Ultimately this book is like his own online business which sold a product of little value he wasn’t an expert in. Which is what this book is.Read more827 people found this helpfulHelpfulCommentReport abuseN. Gramlich1.0 out of 5 stars Read the negative comments…Reviewed in the United States on January 31, 2019Format: HardcoverVerified PurchaseThey will tell you all you need to know.

    Even starting the first chapter, I could feel my BS-ometer beginning to wiggle upward on the scale. About the time I got to the outsourcing – where he proudly admitted paying someone $4 an hour to do his work for him – then read the “result” from one of his readers where he (a chef) was able to hire some brown person to cook for him at $5 a meal… (leaving me to wonder if that chef would happily work for $5/hr to cook for someone else) that’s when I realized that this covertly racist and utterly lazy method of making/saving money went against my every moral fiber.

    When I read parts of it to my husband, he shook his head and said it sounded toxic. Of all the other books you can read that will set your soul in the right place to earn money (“The Soul of Money” by Lynne Twist, “The Gifts of Imperfection” by Brene Brown) – this one screams selfish, greedy, lying, and morally-bankrupt. Half of the stuff in here I can’t even fathom working – outside of getting you fired. The concept of “It’s better to ask forgiveness than permission” irks me in so many ways – namely, that it takes a dire lack of respect to pull off. This book reeks of disrespect.

    I’ll end by saying – read those negative reviews if you want a really solid look into what this book is about. Into the recycling bin it goes.Read more271 people found this helpfulHelpfulCommentReport abuseJeffrey W. Fredericks1.0 out of 5 stars I Took The Author’s Advice, In One RespectReviewed in the United States on September 18, 2017Format: Kindle EditionVerified PurchaseAn excerpt from the book:

    “Practice the art of nonfinishing. This is another one that took me a long time to learn. Starting something doesn’t automatically justify finishing it. If you are reading an article that sucks, put it down and don’t pick it back up. If you go to a movie and it’s worse than Matrix III, get the hell out of there before more neurons die. If you’re full after half a plate of ribs, put the damn fork down and don’t order dessert. More is not better, and stopping something is often 10 times better than finishing it. Develop the habit of nonfinishing that which is boring or unproductive if a boss isn’t demanding it.”

    This book has no redeeming qualities. So, I’ve decided to put it down, and I won’t be picking it back up. For this one bit of advice, I thank the author.

    Maybe some people get something out of it. For me, it was a huge waste of my precious time. I like the concept of lifestyle design. I think it is a valid concept. However, his egocentric advice is useless to someone in a different stage of life. This book is NOT one size fits all.

    I only hope I can get my money back.Read more307 people found this helpfulHelpfulCommentReport abuseAll the things!5.0 out of 5 stars Flipped my thinking on its headReviewed in the United States on August 29, 2018Format: Kindle EditionVerified PurchaseI am honestly not entirely sure what to say about this book. The message is stop working harder, start working smarter. As a USA Today bestselling author with multiple number 1’s under my belt, I wasn’t completely sure how the advice in this book would apply to me, but actually, I came up with several ways to implement this without quitting writing (to move into sales) or hiring a ghostwriter. I was uncertain how to take my personal development to the next level before I bought this book. I’m now working more efficiently. I spent the last 2 months on a mini-retirement traveling the world with my husband, and my book sales are up on new titles. I am spending FAR less time on the little things and overall I feel like I have a positive plan going forward, which is exactly what I needed. If I ever meet Tim Ferriss in person I’d like to thank him.82 people found this helpfulHelpfulCommentReport abuseSee all reviews from the United States

Dragoon4.0 out of 5 stars Flawed but hugely informative bookReviewed in the United States on January 28, 2017Format: HardcoverVerified PurchaseThis book presents history in a way that is easy to understand and flows with a smoothness that other world history books and even classes seem unable. Gorgeous color photos and a very fair and objective representation of world history make reading this cover to cover fun and exceptionally informative.

    However, the book does contain far more typos than would be expected from a scholarly source. Most of the typos appear to be in the first half of the book, though, so the minor irritation alleviates in later chapters. Another flaw with the book is that the binding seems precariously weak for such a heavy book. If you store this book standing upright on a shelf, the weight of the pages will probably pull some of the binding off of the top of the inner spine, as it has happened with my copy. Definitely more of a coffee table book than a bookshelf one.

    Overall, I would still recommend this to anyone who wants to read a world history book.54 people found this helpfulHelpfulCommentReport abuseQQMKXP9385.0 out of 5 stars Overview & Main DetailsReviewed in the United States on July 13, 2019Format: HardcoverVerified PurchaseI am 75yrs old; so, I do not need a detailed college text for reviewing the history I have learned through college, although that may be helpful to me in the future. Right now, I wanted to put some of the historical novels that I have been reading into the broad timeline of historical events. I also needed the maps to review how historical events affected the distribution and naming of land. It has simply been ages since I wanted to revisit history and geography. This book fills the bill for my current interests.14 people found this helpfulHelpfulCommentReport abuseMoj1.0 out of 5 stars Biased and misleadingReviewed in the United States on September 29, 2018Format: HardcoverVerified PurchaseIf I could return this book I would. I found the parts of history about Persian empire very biased and misleading. As expected with western historians. But the section on Persian empire was exceptionally misleading. Having read this portion I lost confidence in accuracy of the rest of the book.21 people found this helpfulHelpfulCommentReport abusejf845.0 out of 5 stars A magnificent overview of human history!Reviewed in the United States on September 21, 2017Format: HardcoverVerified PurchaseThis book is a fantastic overview of human history. It merely scratches the surfaces of the individual subjects, but the number of subjects is what makes this book impressive. Presentation is excellent, though I can’t personally verify the information provided. I think of this similarly to how I use wikipedia: it’s a great place to start when curious about a subject (and this book is sure to pique a myriad of curiosities).13 people found this helpfulHelpfulCommentReport abuseAmazonBuyer5.0 out of 5 stars Great way to brush up on your historyReviewed in the United States on February 28, 2014Format: PaperbackVerified PurchaseI bought this book because I am trying to brush up on my world history. After reading this book, I have a much deeper insight into world news topics that I hear about on TV. History was definitely not my favorite subject in school, and it was not until I was an adult that I came to appreciate it. This book fills in a lot of gaps in my history knowledge. I love how it very succinctly covers every major historical event. It gives you a foundation on each event, and if you want to dive deeper, you can branch off into Wikipedia or other verbose media on the topic. Having the groundwork laid by this book, provides you with an easier transition. The only negative I have is that some of the chapters were written with the assumption that you already have knowledge of the event. Because of this, some of the chapters are not an easy read like a novel, and will require you to reread paragraphs over again to connect the dots.27 people found this helpfulHelpfulCommentReport abuseM. Clark5.0 out of 5 stars History from a reputable source, and beautiful to look atReviewed in the United States on September 15, 2018Format: HardcoverVerified PurchaseBeautiful, brief, and well organized. A wonderful book to add to my home library and something my homeschooled kids can refer to any time. In a time period where information is often questionable, it is important to have a book of history my kids and I can trust. The Smithsonian is the makers of this book, and they make sure to do their research and source checks well. It looks like a very expensive book and I’m pleased to have it in our shelves.5 people found this helpfulHelpfulCommentReport abuseLooLoo5.0 out of 5 stars Big, and wonderful resourceReviewed in the United States on December 15, 2019Format: HardcoverVerified PurchaseThis is a huge book! Be prepared for a large book, but wow the material is so well explained and organized. Also, it covers the general topic of all history, so there’s a lot to include. My young teen finds the book a little difficult to tote around the house, but this really aunt been a problem. There are plenty of photos and graphics, which keeps the learning from being overly dry. The dust cover is very nice, and really this is a great education tool for advanced kids, teens, or adults looking to increase their knowledge base. I definitely feel this book gives a lot of return on investment as well as makes a great conversation starter with company as a coffee table book.

The books are filled with an immense amount of information which is presented in a fascinating, readable way. Of course the author couldn’t include absolutely every single detail about the subject at hand, but they still did a wonderful job. The photos are gorgeous and a perfect complement to the information being presented. The books themselves have sturdy binding and stout construction.
