I borrowed the 1st version of this book an read it while on vacation in Hawaii. I loved it, but I didn't follow through on his advice and message when I got back to the mainland. month later his updated version of 4hww came out and I decided to buy it and see the differences. The advice was followed up with real world examples and for me it was a very inspiring read. I am now on the road towards my own version of 4hww. I am in the middle of my "elimination" phase. Even if you take 1 thing from this book and apply it to your life, you will improve the quality of your life ten fold. Great book - funny, easy to read and full of inspiring advice.
