Tim Ferriss at Le Web

As some of you know from previous posts, I really like what Tim Ferriss has been doing. His intellect and hobbies are stuff to aspire and his blueprints, or rather his detailed reports of his ventures are always great for entertainment and educational purposes. Want to become an entrepreneur? Rather become a fulltime adventurer.
Here is his speech from Le Web where he talks about how to start with less than 10.000$ and succeed launchin a book into the top lists.
