The Land Rush – The Four Hour Body Giveaway

Written by Posted in Articles

The most recent of Tim Ferriss’s activities to promote his new book,The 4-Hour Body, is called “The Land Rush”. Land Rush is a giveaway scheme, where you can get up to $4.000.000 in additional prizes when you purchase the new book in bulk. The overall goal of this and the other promotional activities is to beat the Guiness Book Of World Records on the New York Times Bestseller List.
