The 4-Hour Workweek, Expanded and Updated, With Over 100 New Pages of Cutting-Edge Content. [Hardcover] | Timothy Ferriss (Author)

The book featured pre-release blurbs from Jack Canfield the creator of Chicken Soup for the Soul series, Esquire editor A. J. Jacobs and bestselling author Phil Town. The 4HWW was also profiled in The New York Times along with Netscape founder Marc Andreessen who stated that he was a personal fan of the book.
Ferriss makes some claims in his book that have been challenged. These have been verified:
  • He holds a Guinness World Record in tango for most spins in one minute
  • That he is a Princeton University guest lecturer
  • He is adviser to "30 world record holders in professional and Olympic sports"
Ferris claims to be a National Chinese Kickboxing champion, although in the book he admits to becoming champion by taking advantage of what he refers to as 'loopholes'. He explains his process of dehydrating to be classified as a fighter two weight classes below his normal weight, rehydrating before the fights, and shoving his opponents out of the ring to win rather than kickbox. On his blog, Ferriss explains that this tactic earned him the nickname "sumo" by attendants of the competition.

More than 100 pages of new, cutting-edge content. Forget the old concept of retirement and the rest of the deferred-life plan–there is no need to wait and every reason not to, especially in unpredictable economic times. Whether your dream is escaping the rat race, experiencing high-end world travel, earning a monthly five-figure income with zero management, or just living more and working less, The 4-Hour Workweek is the blueprint.

This step-by-step guide to luxury lifestyle design teaches:
•How Tim went from $40,000 per year and 80 hours per week to $40,000 per month and 4 hours per week
•How to outsource your life to overseas virtual assistants for $5 per hour and do whatever you want
•How blue-chip escape artists travel the world without quitting their jobs
•How to eliminate 50% of your work in 48 hours using the principles of a forgotten Italian economist

•More than 50 practical tips and case studies from readers (including families) who have doubled income, overcome common sticking points, and reinvented themselves using the original book as a starting point
•Real-world templates you can copy for eliminating e-mail, negotiating with bosses and clients, or getting a private chef for less than $8 a meal
