    " Tims book gives you new, easy to apply on ideas on how to turn your 9-5 life into a more flexible lifestyle. I love it and have already applied some of his ideas. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brandon Black | 2/15/2014

    " I listened to the audiobook. It's so good, I'm reading it again - literally, I'm reading it again, right now. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Chris Engel | 2/10/2014

    " Excellent book which made me think differently about my career and what possibilities are out there. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Bernardo Llaguno | 2/2/2014

    " Entertaining, not sure about their philosophy. Sounds good but hard to believe. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Missy | 1/23/2014

    " This book surely made a difference in how I interact with business associates. I don't recommend using these tactics on every single person you encounter in the workforce (you will be seen as just down right rude), however, very good advice for those co-workers and associates that would like to take advantage of you and how to set boundaries. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marcus | 1/4/2014

    " I need excitement. I need travel. I need a south asian virtual assistant. These are some of the points that the author makes in this book. I want to do a lot of the things he prescribes to maximize productivity and self actualization. All the personal business construction aside the travel tips at the conclusion of the book are worth borrowing it from which Type A friend you have that has decided to quit their job and give Vagabonding a go. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Añjuli Cooper | 12/26/2013

    " Some great ideas and concepts.....will get you thinking. Be prepared to want to give up the day job! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jeff | 12/14/2013

    " Changed my perception of work, travel, streamlining life, and "dreamlining". This is the single most important book so far in my professional career, albeit quite simplistic. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Garrett Trubey | 11/22/2013

    " Interesting concepts in the book, depending on your job maybe quasi-practical. However the book is very idealistic, although its nice to dream every so often. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 April | 11/2/2013

    " Some of his methods seem dishonest and unethical, but there are some good ideas in here. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Bryant Rudisill | 9/29/2013

    " Interesting... I think I liked it, but can't really tell. Currently, the information doesn't apply to much of my life business-wise, but I can possibly see myself pulling in some of his tips in the near future. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Alex Vasai | 9/14/2013

    " The beginning and the end of the book produced some good thoughts in my mind about my future and my present. The writer included a lot of links needed after him for the personal development. I think a person who wants to start a business will find this book impressive. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dheeraj Konidena | 9/10/2013

    " Just finished the First edition. Cant wait to read the expanded version! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Jorge | 7/20/2013

    " This title has won, by far, the BCOY prize in my list (Best Crap Of the Year). Couldn't even finish the second chapter. Recommended only if you find yourself in a lost island and need to burn something to warm up... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cuong Nguyen michael | 7/11/2013

    " I always dream of having such a relax and peaceful life. How can we get it in Vietnam? :( "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ramin32 | 2/6/2013

    " Great mind shift for alternatives to making a living. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tyler | 9/8/2012

    " A must read book and seriously a life changing one. Back in 2008 this book inspired us to move to a new country and engineer our business to support our personal goals in life. When you do that everyday going to work is an exciting adventure! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shannon | 5/9/2012

    " I don't agree with everything in this book, but some very interesting thoughts indeed! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Max | 10/23/2011

    " Passionate, eloquent, and humorous writing, and full of specific advice that strikes me as quite pragmatic. Taking some of his suggestions to heart already; we'll see where this takes me :) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 brynnelda dahling | 7/28/2011

    " Great tips for anyone hoping to start their own business one day. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Chad | 7/5/2011

    " Interesting, but nothing mind-blowing. It might change the lives of a few people, but probably not yours. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Chris | 5/21/2011

    " 5 stars once I'm a millionaire. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Misty | 5/7/2011

    " I avoided reading this because I thought it was going to be a scam of epic proportions. But, it was really helpful! Again, Tim thinks outside the box, so if that's your thing (or you want it to be), I recommend it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Simon | 4/18/2011

    " While some things are not applicable directly to my situation, it's certainly a thought provoking read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Adam | 4/10/2011

    " This book actually influenced me a lot, as resistant as I was. Reccomend it for anyone interested in writing their own script "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Holly | 4/10/2011

    " 2.5 probably. God I find him obnoxious. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Adena | 4/4/2011

    " This book, while interesting, kind of drove me crazy. Clearly the author doesn't have children or family or anything that needs taking care of. He is free to wander around the world, pursuing his dreams. I don't feel that I have that freedom. But some of his ideas were interseting. "
