Is it possible to reach your genetic potential in six months? Sleep two hours per day and perform better? Lose more fat than a marathoner by bingeing? Yes, and much more.

Join author Tim Ferriss as he shares the incredible experiments he’s done over ten years to beat genetics and achieve the impossible…for himself and more than two hundred men and women aged eighteen to seventy.

It’s up to you to choose your own adventure: Want to lose twenty pounds of fat in thirty days without exercise? Run fifty kilometers after just twelve weeks of training? That’s just the tip of the iceberg.

You don’t need better genetics or more discipline. You need immediate results that compel you to continue. That’s exactly what The 4-Hour Body delivers.

    " I dislike the way Ferriss delivers his messages (his writing "voice" I guess) both in this book and his last, which feels oddly like '80s advertising copy or a fake doctor in an infomercial, along the lines of "with these 100% guaranteed techniques you'll find yourself able to facilitate 507% increase in blah blah blah..." (I should also note that I've met Ferriss in person and his actual real-life conversational manner is friendly & humble & nothing at all like his somewhat off-putting authorial voice.) I do, however, enjoy the silly jokes he throws in throughout his text (referring to the book as "big enough to club a baby seal" and to weight-lifters as "man-gorillas.") I also enjoy the mere fact that someone like Ferriss exists. There's a lot that's ridiculous about the book and a lot that's interesting, but either way I'm fascinated at the way he's tapped into this very American mindset, of believing that we can "hack" anything, whether it's outsmarting the rat race or leapfrogging over whatever science or marketing has told us in the past about weight loss. I'm also fascinated by the disconnect in the fact that the author sells this idea of getting the most results out of the least possible effort, but that he himself is the most precocious person on the planet and clearly puts 200% effort into everything he does or takes an interest in. As to the actual content of this book I don't have much to say since I'm not that interested in the subject matter and only skimmed through the book here and there, but it's presented as a "buffet" of info that you are invited to flip through and pick from at random, and I would definitely say that pretty much any person, especially dudes, can find something of interest in there. "

    " I love learning about vitamins and supplements and what they can do for your body. So I enjoyed learning about new supplements, etc. However, some of it just seemed ridiculous. I will probably listen to the audio book again at some point to recall some health points. I can't say I agreed with his perspective on fitness and minimally working out. Maybe it's b/c I listened to the audio book, but this book was lacking, left me wanting more meat & potatoes. He would hit topics lightly and move on quickly. "
