Food for thought

Disclosure: I received a free copy of this audiobook in exchange for a candid review

The 40 Hour Work Year offers interesting, actionable ways to work more effectively and efficiently. It's directed towards entrepreneurs, so folks with corporate jobs *may* be more limited in their ability to apply the book's recommendations. That said, I'm a firm believer that everyone should "think like an entrepreneur" and thus can learn from the concepts in this book. More than that, I found this to be an inspiring read... it offered fresh perspective for thinking about one's work and strategic approach.

I recommend The 40 Hour Work Year for anyone currently in the work force, or preparing to join the work force. Retirees may also find the concepts helpful if involved in volunteer efforts.

What a fantastic read! Better than 4hr work week

What made the experience of listening to The 40 Hour Work YEAR the most enjoyable?

1st off, it was short. I listened at 3 times the speed, went for a drive, and had finished to book by the time i got back home. Every bit of this book was to the point.

What other book might you compare The 40 Hour Work YEAR to and why?

To me, it blew away the 4 hour work week, because it was not about hiring virtual assistants and skipping emails. It was about building a company that is truly better without you. Building systems and inspecting what you expect.

What about Tom Zingarelli’s performance did you like?

I liked it a lot. At 3x speed he sounded very clear.

What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

The business is better off without me working in it.

Any additional comments?

I'd love to chat with the author, Scott Fritz
