Book Review of The 4-Hour Workweek by Timothy Ferriss

The 4-Hour Workweek audiobook, expanded and updated, Time Ferriss, Escape 9-5 Live Anywhere and Join the New Rich

Why I Chose this Book Honestly, I had heard of The 4-Hour Workweek maybe years before I actually read it. I at least saw the title on Overdrive’s website often.

Review of Watchmen by Alan Moore

graphic novel, alan moore, Dave Gibbons

Why I Chose this Book Why did I choose this book? I think I’ve been slowly gravitating towards graphic novels. I remember wondering a few years ago why the medium wasn’t more popular.
