The 4-Hour Workweek by

Date read: Dec. 18, 2018

How much I liked it: 9/10

Tim Ferriss’s 4-Hour Workweek is a classic by now. It has been read by a large number of people and for a good reason. The number of “golden nuggets” in this book is high. You will get introduced to useful concepts of Automation, Elimination, Liberation, and Definition. These are pretty self-explanatory but will make more sense ones you read the book.

When I was reading it, I kept having this awesome feeling that I could do anything, I need to keep learning and doing something. Even though I have not yet reached my final goals, I keep moving towards them and books like these help me make this happen.

By no means, you should expect to become a billionaire, or whatever you strive to be, after reading this book. No one book is a panacea for all your problems. But this specific book motivated me to pick up other material to read and thus creating this perpetual loop of learning.

I am currently rereading this book to highlight the things that motivated me the most. Once I do that I will publish those notes.
