There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
The content around lifestyle design I have to say is novel and interesting - but like a wedding cake, it's buried under inches sickly, suffocating fondant.

I've listened to Tim's podcasts for good few years, and respect his interview skills and the type of people he invites.
But that does not make him a writer - if that were the criteria then all radio/tv broadcasters/new-readers/weather-reporters will be writers too. Too much content thrown into the book in a false hope something somewhere may be of use to someone.
The author breaks it down in four steps D E A and L
D is for definition and is probably the only part of the book of any substance. If you’re under 23, naive, and never stand up for self you might get something out of it. It’s mostly work mindset a lot of people have developed over a year or so in the work world.
E is elimination which is his time management section. Honestly there is some good advice , however,there are way better books on the topic. He advocates the low information diet which basically being willfully ignorant.
A is for automation. In this section he advocates for first automating/ outsourcing as much in your life as you can to save time and money.
But the main focus is setting up a business online that sells things of little value very overpriced and attempting to automate that. Having worked in online marketing, I can tell you the information here is outdated, vague, and not very thorough. If you want to set up a business online I would recommend reading a different book. He also advocates calling yourself an expert and teaching courses on topics you have no authority in. Ultimately, this is where the book falls apart as this is his central way to live the four hour work week, which if you take a look at his own life he isn’t living that way.
For L is for liberation and I took his low information diet and stopped reading.
Conclusion: this book is for naive, weak, dummies who hate their jobs and will take any terrible advice to give them hope. Ultimately this book is like his own online business which sold a product of little value he wasn’t an expert in. Which is what this book is.
