This book has been on the WSJ best seller list forever and I had refused to read it simply because I don’t like changing the way I do things. This is a bi-product of ego. So much thought is behind how I work and why I do what I do, that I often resist advice.
I'm smart enough to know that just because it's my way doesn't make it the best way. Luckily my mind is stronger then my ego (that's how I'm able to drag myself to work everyday) therefore, I am always in a constant effort to improve how I move. That's why knowledge is key.

I recieved a personal endorsement from someone I respect; so I picked up a copy of "4 Hr" last week. If you don't listen to the advice of the good people you surround yourself with, what good are they? I will hold my strong commentary on the book until I’ve completed it. So far it’s interesting; half Stephen Covey (of 7 habits fame), half PT Barnum.

I did bring forward one interesting quote:

It is vain to do with more what can be done with less.
-William of Occam (1300-1350), Originator of “Occam’s Razor”.

That is me 100%, I overdue certain things just to make myself feel good. Wasted time and effort. That alone might be worth the $19.95.

If anyone has anything thoughts please share - We are here to get Rich feedback from the minds of my insane readers are needed.

I'm glad to see you are blogging again. I respect you because you are always humble and feel like you need to improve your self consistantly. That is a quality that many must have to succeed.
I can't wait for your blog to remove the word "future" Millionaire and change it to just Millionaire. I will wait for your reccomendation before wasting my time on "4 Hour Work Week".

Hello MJL,
I have read the "4 hour work week" and it is that kind of thought process that is putting us in the financial crisis that we are in today. You appear to be very young, but mature. Your work ethic (if what I read is true) is reflective of an older generation’s thinking. What you get in the "4 hour work week" is a body of work craftily written by Ferriss, that leads younger thinkers into a lazy, shortcut, way of life which produces more jobs overseas. This lazy-man's mentality has created the Dot-com bubble as well as helped create this real estate Problem we are seeing. People think they deserve more without working for it. They deserve bigger better cars, and bigger houses without putting in the hours and getting the experience. I am interested to hear your personal assessment, am I right about you or not! Maybe I am the one out of touch but I don't think so.
