Anyone read the 4-hour body?

Tim Ferris. I see this name everywhere. He is the author of the 4-hour body and several other self-improvement books. So far Ive only read the 4-hour work week, and while he manages to offer some solid advice, I don’t see him as this ” life hacker” that so many believe him to be. Would spending 20 something dollars on his newest book be a complete waste of time and money? Or is it really as monumental as they say it is? Thoughts?

@infiniteself, I think he’s a pretty cool guy. Someone mentioned a “Geek to Freak” challenge here awhile ago, taken from the 4 Hour Body, I went and bought it, liked it, bought the 4 Hour Work Week because I liked his writing, and just recently bought the 4 Hour Chef. I think they’re all good.

He may not be right about everything, but he’s got some good advice.

@infiniteself, you could always get the books out from your local library, or if you want to be a scoundrel you could download the books as .pdf files.

@infiniteself, i read it, pretty good, more realistic, honest and logical approach to health as a whole. He basically makes all fitness and nutrition “gurus” look like school produced narrow minded fools. gaining weight, losing weight, sleep, sex and testosterone, all covered. Most i can attest to being quite true. I have implemented upwards of 10 of his methods into my life with congruent success to his.

any specific questions feel free to ask

@theskafish, I actually have tried this, but it seems as though my local library does not carry anything published after 1985. But thanks for the tip

@conorq, Yes, I’ve always applauded his more logical approach. Thanks for your response. A HEthens opinion is much appreciated after searching through an overwhelming amount of apathetic book reviews on amazon, b&n etc

@xyver, 34 lbs of muscle in 4 weeks? As healthcare provider, I am all too familiar with benefits of gaining that type of muscle mass, however as a more petite member of the fairer sex ( and I’m not trying to speak for all women) I feel like that increase might be a bit extreme. But overall his body sculpting tips are pretty on point. Thanks for the insight

@infiniteself, see if your library has interlibrary loan services. Sometimes you can get the library to request a book or other type of media from another library. Usually the time you have to check out the item varies from a little shorter to the full amount of time. My library has this service and I’ve used it many times. Give it a try, perhaps.

I liked it a lot but the 15-minute orgasm… I don’t know… it’s not as fool-proof as it seems apparently. I would need Tim Ferris to look over my shoulder and give me some aid.
The book inspired and outlined for me the way to gain some muscle, which I did successfully by drinking lotsa milk.
Interesting read, I can recommend it.
