New Month – New Book

New Month – New Book

Happy March 1, 2012.  We have a new month, so we need to choose a new book. I’m selecting The 4-Hour Workweek: Escape 9-5, Live Anywhere, and Join the New Rich (Expanded and Updated) by Timothy Ferriss.  Forget the old concept of retirement and the rest of the deferred-life plan–there is no need to wait and every reason not to, especially in unpredictable economic times. Whether your dream is escaping the rat race, experiencing high-end world travel, earning a monthly five-figure income with zero management, or just living more and working less, The 4-Hour Workweek is the blueprint.

This step-by-step guide to luxury lifestyle design teaches:
•   How Tim went from $40,000 per year and 80 hours per week to $40,000 per month and 4 hours per week
•  How to outsource your life to overseas virtual assistants for $5 per hour and do whatever you want
•  How blue-chip escape artists travel the world without quitting their jobs
•  How to eliminate 50% of your work in 48 hours using the principles of a forgotten Italian economist
•  How to trade a long-haul career for short work bursts and frequent “mini-retirements”

The new expanded edition of Tim Ferriss’ The 4-Hour Workweek includes:
•  More than 50 practical tips and case studies from readers (including families) who have doubled income, overcome common sticking points, and reinvented themselves using the original book as a starting point
•  Real-world templates you can copy for eliminating e-mail, negotiating with bosses and clients, or getting a private chef for less than $8 a meal
•  How Lifestyle Design principles can be suited to unpredictable economic times
•  The latest tools and tricks, as well as high-tech shortcuts, for living like a diplomat or millionaire without being either

Happy Reading!
