This book was challenging for me starting with the title: The 4 Hour Workweek.

So, I dared to search beyond it. I started to read like I always do when I get a new book which is entirely unknown to me, and yet impressive in many aspects. This one comes structured in 4 significant steps.

Each step comes with its own subtitles and a summary at the end in order to help you extract the best ideas of the book. The idea is to make the readers feel like their story is being heard because the author broadens his horizons stretching beyond the fundamental personal perspective.

This might be one of those that you don’t want to end. According to many people “The 4-Hour Workweek” definitely deserves a place on your bookshelf. In fact, it probably one of the most inspiring books you will ever hold in your hands.

Its impartial ideas shared honestly and transparently represent that this book carries the fragrance of hope. Timothy Ferriss displays in the most real sense of the word, a new method, supported by step-by-step instructions.

New information. New Perspectives. New approaches. Sounded like a great reading deal for me. After the very first pages, I found out that this book was also an expected DEAL for the writer.
