I hate abridged books--I???m a big Tim Ferriss fan. I don???t know if I???d personally do what he recommends, but I do know I want to read about it.
When I bought this, I didn???t realize this was abridged. Listening to it, I just thought it was full of holes, until at the very end of the audiobook--almost the very last 5 seconds of the book it announces ???abridged.??? So I missed the fine print
Why do unabridged books announce it in their titles, but bowdlerized books don???t?
I wish there was an Audible choice that would announce in 36 point type--???ABRIDGED???.
Read the book. What I listened to was interesting, weird, inspiring, and full of so much detail, it???s better to read this in print.

Well worth a listen. Love how he explains his approach and is not afraid to tell you "why" but at the same time is very open about being receptive to the possiblity that he doesn't understand the "why". He adheres to a scientific method approach and walks you through his experiments & why he tried them, which worked and which did not.beta inappVoteInfo
Some of the information in the first few chapters was helpful and correct. The rest is on such shaking ground, from a research standpoint that it is comical to listen to. I have no doubt that Ferriss is an incredibly motivated and brilliant tech specialist. And I can sympathize with the data collection fetish that he has, as I am also similarly motivated. But he is no scientist, and it is hard to "take his word for it" as we are so often asked to in this book.
I really have a lot of admiration for the author, but this book is not worth your time.
On a side note: When possible, avoid this narrator.
Addicted to Audible since 2009
I heard a great deal about this book but truthfully, I knew most of the info in this book already. With that said, there was some good advice here and there were a few good tips that I will take out of this and if they work then my review would be better but I won't know that until later.
I would say this is a pretty good listen, but not a great one. Just a good time pass! Thanks to Audible for having this in store.
Tim continues to provide the best and most condensed information to achieve any goal. I bought it in both hardcopy and this abridged audio format. Great book ... Audio is my favorite format for books. You will get a great deal of information in the short 3 hours.
