Whether you’re a fan or not, Tim Ferriss is the man who made the term lifestyle design popular. His ideas are debated, ridiculed, dissected and praised. I’ve been an impartial follower for a couple years now, testing some of his ideas and challenging The Four Hour Work Week during this very project. His methods are results oriented and often looking for ways to exploit the “trick” to accomplishing something and then moving on. He has a new book and I’m giving it away.

Tim has invited the world to take a deeper look into his life explorations, hacks and findings in his new book, The Four Hour Body , this time around he’s not specifically geared to productivity and financial freedom like The Four Hour Work Week but more so toward the human body.

Obviously the “four hour” term isn’t meant to be taken as a completely literal statement, as some seem to flip out about, but as the book summary reads…

For all things physical, what are the tiniest changes that produce the biggest results?”

YOU WILL LEARN (in less than 30 minutes each):

  • How to lose those last 5-10 pounds (or 100+ pounds) with odd combinations of food and safe chemical cocktails.
  • How to prevent fat gain while bingeing (X-mas, holidays, weekends)
  • How to increase fat-loss 300% with a few bags of ice
  • How Tim gained 34 pounds of muscle in 28 days, without steroids, and in four hours of total gym time
  • How to sleep 2 hours per day and feel fully rested
  • How to go from running 5 kilometers to 50 kilometers in 12 weeks
  • How to reverse “permanent” injuries
  • How to add 150+ pounds to your lifts in 6 months
  • How to pay for a beach vacation with one hospital visit

And that’s just the tip of the iceberg.  There are more than 50 topics covered, all with real-world experiments, many including more than 200 test subjects.

Tim knows how to write results oriented copy too eh?

Purists and completists would probably like to stone him, but you can’t deny he makes an impact. I like his approach personally, and attribute The Four Hour Work Week to sparking The Life Design Project.

New Here? That’s okay, I’m Rob and I dismantle what it’s like to live intelligently, systematically breaking down principles (and my struggles) made popular by the book The Four Hour Work Week and lifestyle hackers, you know, the guys who somehow do everything, take vacations all the time, seem to own several businesses, think outside the box and soak up life. I’ve worked through the first three stages of the project, I’m in the middle of developing scalable easily managed income through online business. The toughest yet, but incredibly rewarding. Sign up for updates, or drop me a line and join the journey, it’s worth it.
