Fun book that can change you

by James Headfield on 11/25/2011

This is a controversial book, because it doesn't follow the mainstream conventions when it comes to diet, exercise, and drugs (pharmaceuticals, supplements). I suggest you read other reviews of this book before purchasing it to see whether it is something you would really want. The book is well-written, but there are times where it is obvious that this is only Ferriss' second book. It's not the best read in the world, but what Tim Ferriss manages to do is take relatively dry information, and make it more digestible. The book has a scientific approach to weight loss and body change, but you don't need to be a scientist to follow along (but it does help). There is a misconception that diets and lifestyle changes like these are just for lazy people, and it's not true. I'm an athletic, smart person, and have played sports most of life. I was relatively healthy to begin with, but 4HB took me to a whole new level, and allowed me to understand what works and what doesn't with my body. If, after looking at some of the more in-depth reviews for 4HB around the internet, you are even mildly interested in the diet, I would suggest you pick up a copy of the book and read just the first 130 pages, and try the diet for a week. That's what I did, and I ended up losing 7 pounds of fat in the first week alone, and gaining about 4 pounds of muscle. It certainly worked for me.

Product Overview

Thinner, bigger, faster, stronger... which 150 pages will you read?

Is it possible to:
Reach your genetic potential in 6 months?
Sleep 2 hours per day and perform better than on 8 hours?
Lose more fat than a marathoner by bingeing?

Indeed, and much more. This is not just another diet and fitness book.

The 4-Hour Body is the result of an obsessive quest, spanning more than a decade, to hack the human body. It contains the collective wisdom of hundreds of elite athletes, dozens of MDs, and thousands of hours of jaw-dropping personal experimentation. From Olympic training centers to black-market laboratories, from Silicon Valley to South Africa, Tim Ferriss, the #1New York Times bestselling author of The 4-Hour Workweek, fixated on one life-changing question:

For all things physical, what are the tiniest changes that produce the biggest results?

Thousands of tests later, this book contains the answers for both men and women.

From the gym to the bedroom, it?s all here, and it all works.

YOU WILL LEARN (in less than 30 minutes each):
How to lose those last 5-10 pounds (or 100+ pounds) with odd combinations of food and safe chemical cocktails.

* How to prevent fat gain while bingeing (X-mas, holidays, weekends)
* How to increase fat-loss 300% with a few bags of ice
* How Tim gained 34 pounds of muscle in 28 days, without steroids, and in four hours oftotal gym time
* How to sleep 2 hours per day and feel fully rested
* How to produce 15-minute female orgasms
* How to triple testosterone and double sperm count
* How to go from running 5 kilometers to 50 kilometers in 12 weeks
* How to reverse ?permanent? injuries
* How to add 150+ pounds to your lifts in 6 months
* How to pay for a beach vacation with one hospital visit

And that's just the tip of the iceberg. There are more than 50 topics covered, all with real-world experiments, many including more than 200 test subjects.

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.
