I had high hopes for this book but found it to be a collection of short stories that the author would then suggest you tell to others by saying "I am reminded of a story..." and then just repeat the story. That's all well and fine the first 3 times... but I couldn't bare anymore of the formulaic and redundant pattern. No real structure being revealed here.
This is everything I hoped it would be. The information is solid and the presentation is very well done. If I have any issues it's that I didn't finish the book feeling like I had a great grasp on the techniques he talks about in the book. I'd love to see a PDF with some of it outlined like they have for other books. Just some cheat sheets and bullet points would be fine.
Dan is a brilliant man with a keen ability to breakdown human behaviors with scientific studies and refreshing clarity. The books is a great listen and the content will keep you up late at night.
I don't know that I agree with everything Ferriss covers in this book but he does give you plenty of inspiration and staring points to find your own body hacks and it offers a perspective shift from the common myths and methods that most people follow. You'll have to pick and choose what you care to absorb from this book, but you'll certainly have some good take-aways by the time you're down with it.
This book is powerful and inspiring. The information is presented scientifically with very understandable examples and facts. You many need to learn a few new medical terms but at the end of the book you'll have a new outlook on exercise and be inspired to do something about it. If you're looking for a personal trainer approach to this subject, you've got the wrong book. But, if you're looking for a fact filled tour through the brain and how exercise enhances your brain, you've got the best book out there.
If you are an apple person you'll love this book. With so much being made of Steve Jobs lately this book really goes give you access to the madness and genius of the many and his company. There are plenty of take-aways in the book but one of my favorites was this line. All apple products are created equal, some more equal than others."
