    Let me save you the time and money...

    Testosterone is awesome because science.
    Don't eat breakfast, and after your cheat day don't eat anything for a day.
    Do oddball exercises at the gym (Javelin Press??)
    If you use the f word 300 times per chapter you seem cool.

    I wanted to believe that this would work, tried it for six weeks, lost 2 lbs, BF% decreased a little (Omron 0.5%). Compared to previous methods (eating breakfast) on similar negative calorie diets I've been able to lose much more. Intermittent Fasting is great for keeping your weight the same, but seems pretty hard to get great fat loss results. Maybe I was doing it wrong (I tried to follow everything exactly).

    The other thing that really was weird was their constant need to drop the F bomb, literally 2 times per page. For no reason. It made them seem less like "Exercise Scientists" (which they assure the listeners they are) and more like "Bro Scientists".

    For my buck, I'd say skip this book.

    John Forbes Nash, Jr., a prodigy and legend by the age of 30, dazzled the mathematical world by solving a series of deep problems deemed "impossible" by other mathematicians. But at the height of his fame, Nash suffered a catastrophic mental breakdown and began a harrowing descent into insanity, resigning his post at MIT, slipping into a series of bizarre delusions, and eventually becoming a dreamy, ghostlike figure at Princeton, scrawling numerological messages on blackboards.

    Story

    Seeing the reviews below, I have to say: Its a biography of a mathematician. If you don't have any idea of what game theory, set theory, or quantum mechanics is... you might not get many references in this book. That being said there is very little "actual" math in the book; so math hesitant listeners need not beware. Most listeners with a well-rounded knowledge in mathematics and science will be able to understand and enjoy this book.

    It does delve, perhaps slightly obtusely, into the history of Princeton, the IAS, etc. but the author uses this to help the listener really understand the environment and world that Nash was living in. Plus there are lots of anecdotal stories about Einstein, Von Neumann, etc. that are actually quite interesting.

    There were a few times in the first few chapters I laughed out loud. :) I would recommend this book for anyone who is not already familiar with the real story of John Nash (not the movie) and has an interest in learning about how one of the great mathematicians of our time lived.
