My only complaint - it could have all been said in 15 pages.
Reminds me of the last Trump "best seller" ... too much self-flatulence; too little substance.

FIRE'd since 2005

Guess this needs to be put on the rose colored glasses list.
Live cheap in foreign countries and be a slave to a meager
budget for the rest of your life. Don't forget to write about it and
peddle it those that cannot enjoy much if it isn't being lazy.

Just read the book this weekend - the best part of the book for me was the tips and other book lists to read for international travel. As for the time management techniques - focusing on your tasks and minimizing those that don't provide 80% of the bang, I have been doing that for awhile. I am still a working stiff, but have been able to be very efficient by focusing on those things that are truly important and delegating or letting go the piddly stuff. I only come into the office 1-2 times a week and telecommute the rest - still get great reviews at work - go figure :-)

His idea of 'being the middle man' is and old idea - he's just jazzed it up using new technology via the internet - kind of bored me as it's not the way I wish to do things - when I retire, I want to be *RETIRED* and SOON :-)

May be one sentence: "Outsource all your work to other people and then live a permanent vacation.”
