Nowadays, I have found that I rarely get too excited about a new book.
But for the last few days IÂ´ve been reading and listening to quite a bit about a guy named Tim Ferriss and his first â€“ and quite hyped â€“ book The 4-Hour Workweek.
I like Ferriss because he seems to have a very direct, no-nonsense style with very practical advice. He also likes some of the same ideas that I do like decluttering and cutting away a lot of unnecessary stuff from your life and prioritizing using methods like the Pareto Principle.
Also, his idea about working just 4 hours each week and filling the rest of your life with a lot of excitement is of course pretty attractive. And, at least to me, pretty original too.
Some links IÂ´ve been browsing and listening to while waiting for the book to hit the bookstores here in Sweden are:
– This free and excellent 54 minute podcast Ferris did at SXSW in Austin.
– Darren RowseÂ´s â€“ at Problogger.net – two-part interview with Tim.
– This long and pretty informative review from David Seah.
– TimÂ´s own blog that details a few of his experiments in lifestyle design.
