Jamie McIntyre, a self-made millionaire explodes the myth that to live the life of your dreams you have to work hard and long hours for years and that you have to become a millionaire to have a millionaire's lifestyle. This book is all about removing those chains that tie you to a desk. Sure you can become a millionaire from being a successful investor over many years, risking capital, but what if:
You don't have capital?
You want your dream life in 12 months or less?
You are already successful but still tied to your career or business?
You simply want to achieve so much more in less time?

First, the whole underlying assumption of this book is that all work sucks and should be minimized. Quality of life can come from a full commitment to mastering one's career. If you are in a crappy job, instead of trying to trick your boss into giving you freedom, why not find a great company to commit to.
Sure, mini-retirements would be great and could be pursued. I definitely agree with trying to remove waste from your life and not getting overly focused on making money. I love the 80/20 rule. Why not work with your boss to try to work something out, instead of tricking him/her into giving you the freedom you don't deserve? Integrity?
Lastly, this book seemed to CONSTANTLY refer to the book "4 hour work week". I already bought that book, thanks.
This book appears to be written by someone who simply wanted to write a book to make some money so they could go on mini retirements. It is full of idealistic and misguided advice.
Can I get my credits back on this one?
