What is the Four Hour Body about?!
Judging by the back cover of the book itself it will be the answer to all of our prayers about the human body. Whether you’re a house wife who wants to loose some extra pounds, a manager who wants be able to work even more hours in a day or a professional athlete who wants to increase their capabilities in an unusual way – Tim Ferriss has the answer.
Let’s dive in and see what we know about The 4 Hour Body so far.
Who Is Tim Ferriss?
Did you ever wonder who that Tim Ferriss guy is who’s book you’re so excited about?! Find most of what’s commonly known around the internet about Tim all compiled into a few bullet points about the author.
Who Is The Four Hour Body For?
The book is written in modular blocks, which means it really is for everybody. You’re supposed to read through the table of contents, pick your goals and incorporate the how-to into your daily routine. When you find something you like, try it out, see if it works for you and then move on to the next experiment. The range of available body hacks is quite broad, going from simple fat loss techniques to reversing permanent injuries with imported stem cells.
Even if you are not really in experimenting with your body, the book will probably be an interesting read, since Tim has this habbit of approaching topics just a little differently, in a very amusing fashion.
If you are at all interested about the human body, this book is for you.
What Does It Look Like?
You shall never judge a book by it’s cover and while the two main colors, a fully saturated purple and orange, would not have been everybody’s first choice, the design is flawless: clear, professional and to the point!
The front cover has been revealed on Tim’s blog and on Amazon some time ago, while the back cover, as we now know, was the product description on the Amazon page. Front and Back covers can now be found as high resolution images over on the official website.
The text on the back sounds much like a TV commercial and describes how Tim came to write the book and what approach he took. He basically challenged everything that is meant to be common knowledge and starts testing for better solution using himself as a guinea pig.
What In The Four Hour Body?!
Pretty much everybody interested in Tim Ferriss or The 4-Hour Work Week knew that the The 4 Hour Body was coming and probably most of those people had a rough idea of what the book would be about. But it wasn’t until only a few days ago, that we finally got our hands on the table of contents. It was published with the launch of the official website for The 4-Hour Body. It’s quite a read and judging by the length of the table of contents by itself, we have a lot to expect from the book.
