    The topic and thinking are groundbreaking though the strategies for being new rich are a bit outdated. Some inspiring quotes from the book:
    - Don't follow a model that doesn't work. If the recipe sucks, it doesn't matter how good a cook you are.
    - Few people choose to measure the result of their actions and this measure their contribution in time.
    - Focus on being productive instead of busy.
    - Are you better off than you were one year ago, one month ago or one week ago? If not, things will not improve by themselves.
    - The opposite of love is indifference, and the opposite of happiness is boredom.
    - The question you should be asking isn't "What do I want?" or "What are my goals", but "What would excite me?"
    - What you do is infinitely more important than how do you it.
    - The best solution is to use both together: identify the few critical tasks that contribute most to income and schedule them with very short and clear deadlines.

    這是一本讓人取得成功的有效書籍,作者大力提倡有目的的行為,不要浪費時間在沒有效益的項目上。不過,我還沒有把整本書讀完,目前只讀完了時間管理的章節。其中最重要的觀念是帕金森法則,用20%的時間做80%的事情。我們不需要時時都在工作,應該做的,是減少工作時間,減少工作的份量,將時間優先配給最重要的項目。大多數人之所以無法成功,都是因為他們花了太多的時間投入在無所謂的工作,結果,實際上都等同於浪費時間。 ...continue

    這本書最核心的想法就是,要你達到某個程度的財富自由,並配合遠距工作,加上屏除一切瑣事後達到的高生產力,讓自己擁有四處旅行跟休閒的自由。
    書中所說的,就是作者本人達成這個目標的方式。

    If the title is of interest to you, the content will be as well. Ferris suggests that for most people the most interesting job is the one which takes the least time/effort and brings a constant stream of income. He proposes a model (DEAL) to follow if you want to own a company, but not really spend time on it.

    Ferris describes how to become a New Rich and enjoy life to the fullest. It is a book about changing the rules and not waiting for retirement until you enjoy life (…), a call-to-action-against mediocrity with a great many anecdotes and practical tips (e.g. have a not-to-do list, leave stuff unfinished; these two have worked for me for a while).

    When Ferris mentions we are pressured by pseudo philosophers to answers questions about the meaning and the purpose of life, he becomes a bit of a (pseudo) philosopher himself. It does make that chapter (15) the most interesting of the book. His presence at TheNextWeb (the reason why I read the book, I don’t fall into the target audience) and his blog give me better feeling about the ‘out the rat race experience’ than this book did.

    這本書不厚,但可以更薄,因為重點都集中在2、3兩章,但光這兩章我就可以給滿分,這是我目前看過,唯一真正務實地在討論如何建構被動收入系統的書。

    很多事情都會自我設限,想辦法算出自己的現金流,並創造更高的現金流,可以授權的事就不要自己做的跟狗一樣!!並學會享受人生!!

    書名很俗,讓人不敢拿起來看
    這是本關於創業的工具書
    裡面很仔細提供創業時所需的網路工具
    創業的最高境界就是不用親臨現場,也能讓底下的外包公司幫忙完成所有工作
    好,不想創業的人(比如我)看這本書有什麼用?
    裡面提到不該讓工作主導自己的人生
    也提出幾個說服老闆的方法
    看完這本書後,可以好好思考裡面提出的觀念
    比如台灣傳統公司都認為「工時=生產力」,所以造成很多員工假加班真摸魚

    比如台灣傳統公司都認為「工時=生產力」,所以造成很多員工假加班真摸魚
    公司應該鼓勵員工在越少的時間內,完成平常八小時就可以做完的工作,剩下時間拿去吸收新知、陪伴家人、放鬆心情,這樣才能帶來更高的生產效率。
    當然,看完後,最重要的就是有勇氣付諸實現

    由心態出發,一步一步具體的提供減少工作時數的方法。

    但更重要的是,工時減少了﹑金錢多了,自己的人生應該投放在什麼地方?作者於結尾部份的提醒非常好,如果今天你已變得非常富有,不需要再為錢而工作,那麼你想對世界作出什麼貢獻?

    不要再回到公司假裝工作,每天返工等放工,而是主動一點,作具體有用的事情,不浪費時間。
