Ferriss' books are intriguing; this is no exception. However the narrator for this audio version is not a good narrator- he has a bad sense of cadence and intonation, and some bad pronunciation.
Transform yourself into a superhuman.. What else can I say? This has tips and tricks for you to lose body fat, weight gain and achieve a lot more regular everyday needs with your body. A must read for every man on earth!
Husband, father, son, brother, occasional book reader. Avid book listener. I have written two books about real estate. I have a blog.
I like Timothy Ferris. This is the second book of his that I have read. I went through this now three times to get all the content.
I think the brook would have been better reading than listening.
Yes, the narration is well done.
It would make a good documentary.
None at this time.
Well, i would say that along with Mr Jim Rohn, the great business philospher, tim has a special place in my audio library along with denis waitley, les brown and such great paradigme shifters.
Yes i would definitely be willing to try the 4HWW or the 4HC.
not relevant here it is a non fiction book
Becoming superhuman one step at a time
The content was interesting but I felt it leaned more to interesting anecdote than research. Perhaps in text format this is handled by footnotes. There's a lot of research in this area and I'm not inclined to believe that everyone has it wrong but the author.
While I don't doubt the effectiveness of the prescription this lack of backing lead me to doubt many of the fantastic assertions with regard to rate of muscle gain or caloric burn.
This is a great resource and very interesting and informative book but the condensed version feels like there are pieces missing - and in doing some additional research there are clearly pieces missing!
great resources everyone should know about their body
IT does not cover the ALL book. I hate audible books that does not cover the entire book
4HB ranks very high on my list because it is easy to listen to, is entertaining, and this book challenges you to do a few (but important) good things for yourself! Timothy Ferriss has made himself the guinea pig so YOU don't have to. Admittedly parts of it wasn't really work but pleasure, but why not? Don't we all work hard and deserve to have a great body and some fun with that body? Sure we do! Read it, enjoy it, try a few of the suggestions. What do you have to lose? No matter what your age, there is something here for you. Five stars on everything but the narration, which could have been a bit less intrusive. Fun!
Best book ever
I liked that he summed up and dummed down the overall message, but then followed that up wirh scientific data for the nerds like me.
When i realized i was going about my weight loss all wrong
The book is great, regardless of your purpose of reading it, it does okay in an audio form, but surely is better in hardcopy, even though the narrator does a really good job.
After listening to the book, you really need to go back and revisit some chapters to catch the finer points, or perhaps the book should be accompanied by a summary sheet. But luckily you can find tons of those pages on the web.
As a closing comment I would add that the book seems to short, and the chapters miss coherence, but I guess that comes when it should encompass Rapid Fat-Loss, Incredible Sex and Becoming a Superhuman.
Also many of the bonus chapters are lacking in the audibook, which is a pity.
