"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 #1 "New 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.

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. Hide synopsis

Overall customer rating: 3.334

This guy is intense. He analyzes every aspect of weight loss, fat loss, muscle gain, diet, exercise, sex techniques, etc, down to the enth degree. He tries everything himself to see how it works, and explains all the calculations and permutations. If you've ever read a Cooks magazine description of how they tested 100 recipes for mac and cheese, for example, and they explain every last variation they tried until they found the best possible combo, then you'll have an idea of the intensity of this author's approach. I would find the book more user friendly if it was broken into volumes, and/or had some spiral bound excerpts that contained only the parts that one needed to perform the physical aspects of all the information, such as a volume or workbook of the exercises, a separate one for the diet, etc. The book is VERY big! and will not stay open or prop open for use. It is also not conducive to hauling around on the train or the beach or the plane. Overall, well written, researched, and interesting!

The book has a outline for a complete diet and timeline. It predicts you will loose weight at a projected steady rate.


If you know nothing about nutrition...

this book might provide some insights, but if you're into fitness and have learned how your body responds to foods then there isn't much here for you. What he presents is basically a modified Paleo diet. Atkins even. Anyone that cuts grain and dairy out of their diet is going to see health improvements and fat loss.
