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 of total 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

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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Book Some of the recommendations within the book are rather bizarre, but I'm picking and choosing what I want to try. I've lost 14 pounds in 5 weeks just following the eating plan.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from For the health hobbyist I had higher expectations for this title. It's like every token health magazine article I have ever seen put into one book....but that's not a bad thing. I bought it as a gift for someone who loves collecting numerous snippets of health information and they loved it! I would highly recommend it for the avid health/diet/lifestyle reader, not for a one-stop reference.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very interesting I just purchased this book at my local Coles for $31.00 then I went online to see that it is $13.98 for the exact same book on Amazon. So this book is being returned pronto.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic info, and easy to implement I received this book just after the New Year, and read it within about 3 days. Some of the information within I knew of, but most I did not. The first thing that caught my eye was the Slow-Carb Diet. Read it through, including the parts about the science behind it, and liked what I saw. So, the wife and I have decided to give it a try. After 5 days on this diet my wife has lost 5.5lbs, and I've lost 5lbs. All with a simple change in eating. So, on this particular part, I have to give the book 2 thumbs up. The Geek to Freak section is something I knew about before, but Tim had it laid out in such a concise way, that anyone could follow it and gain more muscle than they ever thought of in a short amount of time. The science of it is explained as well as the methods used. Throughout the book, Tim shows the science behind everything he talks about, and also shows that he has tried it, and has had guinea pigs try it, to make sure it actually does work for more than himself. As the year progresses, my wife and I will be experimenting with more of the chapters, and are looking forward to the changes. All in all, I would be more than willing to say this is my Bible in regards to body recomposition. The fact that other things such as proper running and swimming are included, are a bonus. Also, there is EXCELLENT information on the best methods of rehabbing, and prehabbing. Those 2 sections alone, make this book worth the cost. If you`re looking to get the best from your body, GRAB THIS BOOK.

About the Author

Timothy Ferriss is an American author and public speaker. In 2007, he published The 4-Hour Workweek: Escape 9-5, Live Anywhere, and Join the New Rich, which was a New York Times, Wall Street Journal and USA Today bestseller. Ferriss grew up in East Hampton, NY and graduated from St. Paul's School. He received a degree in Neuroscience and East Asian Studies from Princeton University. Before the release of the 4HWW, Ferriss was an unknown. He marketed the book heavily through bloggers with whom he created personal relationships. He has since been praised for this technique. He has also taken the position that technology such as email, instant messaging and internet-enabled PDAs complicate life rather than simplify it. His teachings fit under the umbrella of what he calls "Lifestyle Design," which he positions as an alternative to the "deferred-life" career path where one would work a 9 to 5 job until retirement in their 60s.
