    I was just skimming You Tube and found the video "15 Business Books Everyone Should Read" and MJ's book is number 7. I thought it was comical when it recommended to be read after the "4 Hour Workweek". Check this video out

    I think that it's not rated on best to worst it's just a list.

    Yes I know, I just though it funny to see that you should read TMF after 4-hr.

    Gotta love a productocracy.

    While I didn't find 4HWW useful to me, I consider the association an honor, just like being compared to RichDad Poor Dad (a book I enjoyed). These books sold gazillions.

    Now that it's included with this video you're probably going to sell even more copies of TMF along with Unscripted. That's cool!!

    I think people give the 4hww way too much sh*t on here. It advocates alot of the same principles as TMF/Unscripted, the title simply had the best conversion rate when tested was initially "drug dealing for fun and profit" or something like that in reference to the supplement company he was running (on autopilot). I like Ferriss overall and have heard him say that one of his biggest pains is that people think he advocates laziness. Anyway, only posting this because I think people shy away from what I think is a valuable resource 4hww / alot of the business related stuff on his blog based on the title of that book instead of the contents.

    Even though 4HWW is a different message, I think it has value as well.

    I know a number of successful entrepreneurs who were inspired to get their start by that book. Whether you agree with his methods or not, how could that be anything but a good thing?

    Also think that the message is a bit misunderstood. If you listen to him more and actually watch what he does, his thing is really more about productivity than just sitting around on a beach making "passive income".

    Four Hour Workweek is just great copywriting that sells books.

    Also, congrats to @MJ DeMarco on some more well-deserved recognition.

    I always recommend TMF to everyone (which I don't do with 4HWW, despite my contrarian view expressed above, lol).

    Lol, I thought you meant on the best seller list, not some random list some guy made

    Seriously though, MJs done a great job on marketing and building an audience, as well as keeping to a central theme
    Its a great example to follow, so much so I respect his book making more than the original limo website.

    Its good stuff. Nod worthy.
