The 4-Hour Workweek: Escape 9-5, Live Anywhere, and Join the New Rich Audiobook, by Timothy Ferriss, has appeared at the #1 position on both the New York Times Bestseller List and the Wall Street Journal Bestseller List.
A simple yet highly insightful book, "The 4-Hour Workweek" introduces readers to basic principles they can apply immediately to their own workplace methodologies. Ferris has weighed the teachings of some of the best minds of the past and helps listeners to his lectures and audiobook weave all that thinking into a way of approaching that ever-present monkey on the back of how to make a living in this world without giving up all the life this world has to give.
Author Timothy Ferris has been called the "Indiana Jones for the digital age."
Fast Company has named him one of the "Most Innovative Business People of 2007." Forbes Magazine has placed him on their list of "Names You Need to Know in 2011." He has also been mentioned as 7th of the "most powerful" personalities on Newsweek's Digital 100 Power Index for 2012. The list goes on.
Ferriss is truly a child of the digital age. Instead of deferring his dreams to some far-off future date, his life has evolved into an experiment in living the good life, not later, but now. What good life is that? It's different for every person, of course, but the good life represents being able to spend the time one has now doing things that help him achieve his own dreams and to live the way he wants to live while comfortably funding that life in increasingly smaller units of time.
Tim earned a BA from Princeton University in 2000, studying Neuroscience and East Asian Studies. He has rubbed elbows with Pulitzer Prize winner John McPhee and spent time with Nobel Prize winner Kenzaburo Oe as he developed his own nonfiction writing and philosophies in life fulfillment.
One Silicon Valley journalist and publisher has said that Tim had "packed more lives" into his 29 years than Steve Jobs had done by the time he was 51.
Though Timothy admits he is not another Steve Jobs, he has helped thousands of people find more time to travel, to spend with family and to pursue their passions while earning more money in less time by implementing some of Timothy's bits of wisdom.
Ferriss has sifted through some of the sagest advice from great thinkers of the past and homogenized that thinking with the demands of today. He has harnessed the power of the Internet to create a way of life that not only saves time but that enables people to be physically present in close proximity to wherever their wanderlust might take them while still being within a digital stone's throw of where their bread and butter -- their income source -- is produced.
The 4-Hour Workweek: Escape 9-5, Live Anywhere, and Join the New Rich audiobook can help you implement small changes in your own work schedule to help you get achieve more for less. More than just another time management book or instruction manual for multitasking, this audiobook focuses on helping people live their lives rather than have their lives run them.
Tim Ferriss is an extraordinary young man on a mission. The twenty-nine-year-old serial vagabond and successful entrepreneur has been teaching a wildly popular course at Princeton University: a how-to and why-to guide to throwing out the old methods for success (balancing life and work, retiring well, having a great nest egg) and replacing them with an entirely new way of living.

It teaches you how to kill your job and design a life, the 80/20 rule and how it increases productivity, how to replace your dreams with goals, and more. Listeners can lead a rich life by working only four hours a week, freeing up the rest of their time to spend it living the lives they want.
