Did I expect to read the book and instantly change my life? No,but I did think I could pick up a couple of tidbits or pointers about work/life balance or maybe alternatives to traditional employment.
With all the positive press the book has been getting, I thought it had to be a must read. It's not. It's a waste of the paper it's printed on. Full of cliche's and ridiculous 'examples' and even more ridiculous acronyms intended to make you think you are reading something of substance.
Please do not waste your time with this book. If you insist on wasting your time, don't waste your money. I will mail you my copy for free.
A friend gave me a copy of that too and the ideas in the book are pretty ridiculous. Basically the advice was, "Come up with a great money making idea, outsource all the work, enjoy being a millionaire!" Timothy Ferris' blog is pretty entertaining though.
