The 4-Hour Workweek: Escape 9–5, Live Anywhere, and Join the New Rich (2007) is a self-help book by Timothy Ferriss, an American writer, educational activist, and entrepreneur. The book has spent more than four years on The New York Times Best Seller List, has been translated into 40 languages and has sold more than 2.1 million copies worldwide. It deals with what Ferriss refers to as "lifestyle design" and repudiates the traditional "deferred" life plan in which people work grueling hours and take few vacations for decades and save money in order to relax after retirement.

Review of 'The 4-Hour Work Week' on 'Goodreads'

4 stars

Ferriss is a hustler aspiring toward being Tony Robbins, but that doesn't invalidate much of what he has to say. His thesis that enjoying life and retirement now rather than an indefinite someday by achieving remote work and mindfully approaching your work with an eye to automation holds true for any knowledge worker. Good reminder to me on the importance of maintaining personal goals and "dreamlines."
