From the Author
How many hours do you spend at work every week? Is it 35, 50, or maybe even 80? Add on evening conference calls from home, late night blackberry emails from bed, plus weekend work catch-up time and you just might be spending 50% or more of your week on the job. Add-in sleeping time and your week is spoken for before it even begins.
Have you ever wanted to cut those working hours in half without sacrificing money? What if I told you your income could double or triple while still dramatically cutting your hours on the job? Do I have your attention yet?
What I'm about to share in The Complete Idiot's Guide to Working Less and Earning More is not a get rich quick scheme. It's also not a book about reading tea leaves to choose your lucky lottery numbers. You won't be advised to try out for game shows or convince your parents to bequeath your inheritance early. You won't read about hot stock tips to quit your day job and become a day trader. You won't be trolling beaches with a metal detector hoping to score a rare coin.
The Complete Idiot's Guide to Working Less and Earning More is a practical, clear, and most importantly attainable game plan for reducing the hours you spend on the job while maintaining or raising your income. Whether you work as an employee, run your own business, or work as a freelancer, this is your personal guide to a life of financial security and ample free time. I know you're thinking you can't have it both ways. Either you put in long hours to build wealth or you live more modestly to support a lower income job.
I'm here to break that mindset and prove to you that high income and abundant leisure time can co-exist. I'm living proof. I more than doubled my income in half the working hours after I left my job to follow the very plan you'll learn in this book. Today, I maintain this income working three or four days per week maximum. You know how you look forward to long holiday weekends? Well I get one of those weekends every week of the year and you can too.
So what's the secret if you don't need to buy a metal detector, audition for Wheel of Fortune or load up on lottery tickets? The key is asking yourself two fundamental questions. How many hours do you want to work each week and how much money do you want to make in those hours? Answer those two questions and you'll know in minutes if your current job can support a working less, earning more lifestyle. My traditional job certainly didn't stack up and that's why I changed my approach to generating income and enjoying free time. I hope to take you on the same journey through this book.
So let's make some money without burning the midnight oil! --For the Work Less Reader (added by author)

But when I do, it is either because a book has truly exceeded expectations or because the author deserves punishment for high crimes against the State and humanity in general.
This book was truly attrocious, and I am fully convinced that the six "5 star ratings" are from close family members, or maybe just the author's grandmother five seperate times. The book could have been reduced from its roughly 250 pages down into one sentence "If you want to get rich quick, write a book titled Get Rich Quick and sell 10000 copies at $19.95."
The book consists of over 100 pages of pure filler - a vague description of Cohen's new life making twice his old salary as a freelancing consultant and author, with generously large font, entire pages devoted to lame jokes. Honestly, the whole thing has the feel that it was written as fast as this bumbling, vague charlatan could type.
DO NOT BUY. Theft. Theft of both time and money. Jeff Cohen, I WANT MY MONEY BACK!!! If you had a shred of decency, you would have put your picture in the back cover so that if I saw you in the steet I would know you so I could accost you for the return of my cash.
I really enjoyed the chapter on passive income, which is a key for working less! I also enjoyed the goal setting recommendations; so much so, my wife and I went through Jeff's process and now have a frame on our wall with pictures of our goals.
If you want more time to enjoy life, then do yourself a favor and read this book. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain!
