Grouporation = Group + Collaboration
My name is Tim Ferriss, and I’m a serial vagabond, cage fighter, and guest lecturer in high-tech entrepreneurship at Princeton University. I write you today as a 29-year old first-time author who is nervous about my launch, coming up fast on April 24th (Crown/Random House Publishing).
The book, “The 4-Hour Workweek,” is based on my popular lectures at Princeton and explores the question: Is it possible to live like the multimillionaire without first having a million dollars? $40,000 can let you live like an investment banker making $400,000, without following the deferred-life plan of slaving for 20 years. The book is tons of Lifehacks on serious steroids.
The publisher will do a great job of handling offline (and some online), but I’m hoping to help make a big spash in the world of bloggers, social networks, etc. As one person, there are serious limits to how much time I have.
Question for Readers:
What are your top 3-5 recommendations — each of which should take no more than 2 hours of time and have minimal cost — for creating a wild-fire effect and driving sales in the month of May?
Are there particular people who should receive review copies or any great PR stunts that would get serious attention? Let me know!
Gifts of Thanks:
The best 5 posts will receive an advance autographed copy of the book (4 weeks before publication date!) and a PDF of great material that didn’t make it into the book. Thanks so much in advance — I really need your help!
