Mediocre intro to a"think fast and slow" desu, we should kill the "because journalist can describe stuff they understand it " meme. Fucker parrots the people he interviews and than draws the wrong conclusions. Thrash
I distinctly recall reading the 4 hour workweek a while ago and being amazed at how transparent the author's bragging is.
Self-help is usually pretty bad, but the 4 hour WorkWeek is just over the top bad.
It's like the whole book is a self-esteem exercise in getting the reader to think the author is the coolest man on earth.
He doesn't even limit it to usual self help fare like "I'm rich, ripped and get tons of chicks" (though there's plenty of that), he also brags about all these sports championships he won after just a week of training by l33t h4Xing the rules.
I distinctly recall this one part where he bragged about winning this wrestling championship by doing something that was technically within the rules but very much against the spirit of the contest. Like, dude, what's the point? I could see trying to pull something like that if there was money on the line, but as far as I could tell, he was just doing this contest to prove he could win... Well sure you did asshole, by rigorously studying the sport's rulebook to find loopholes you could exploit. What a load of utter crap.
He then brags about how now everybody in Chinese kickboxing uses his 'rule hax', so if his story is true, he not only is a douchebag and a poor sportsman but actually contaminated the culture of an entire sport by setting a poor example.
That's just one example but the whole book is full of the same thing. I'm actually pretty certain that Tim Ferriss is a cancer, a literal cancer.
As a guy who lives a lifestyle not unlike The 4 Hour Workweek (I work from home, roughly 15 hours a week, am my own boss, make more than the national average), I don't think this book is good for 'regular people.'
The type of 'lifehacks' Tim recommends require an unusual personality profile and at least an average IQ. I just can't see some shiftless redneck profiting from 'outsource your sales process to India,' you need to have your shit together BEFORE advice like that comes into the picture.
