    Overall

    Tim Ferriss's first book (4-hour Work Week) set my expectations pretty high for this book, as did all the pre-launch hype. Unfortunately, I felt a bit disappointed in this book after finishing it.

    The 4-hour Body contains a bunch of information on a wide variety of subjects relating to the human body. While much of it is interesting, I only found some of it actually useful, and I'd already read about some of these topics on the author's blog. Each topic is quickly and succinctly summarized, but the transition between topics is often too abrupt. There are also some conflicting portions of the book, such as "don't eat any fruit except on cheat days" vs. "drink one cup of grapefruit juice every day" (for example.)

    For this book to be really beneficial to a reader, it's necessary to just focus on a few sections and implement those recommendations, because there is no way anyone could ever do all the things described in this book at the same time.
