I actually think this guy is more sales bluster than reality. Reminds me a lot of Robert T. Kiyosaki who wrote "Rich Dad, Poor Dad". Full of common sense and very creditable, but I get a strong sense from both authors that their real success came from writing about how they achieved a sort of mediocre success.
I really wanted to like the 4-Hour Workweek as I had heard that it was really a life-changing book. However, I found that I just couldn't get into it. I didn't like the author's writing style. Maybe I just felt he was doing too much "blowing his own horn" and it estranged me as a reader. I guess I should try reading it again.
Needless to say, the book hasn't really helped me as of yet. Then again, I am only 25, so maybe I need more life experience first. (-:
