The Four Hour Body Book Giveaway [ENDED]

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.

Want a Copy?

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.

    ah! thanks 😀

  • Rob

    Thanks Tomas!, Karol rocks…thanks for the thoughts! One more day, thanks for entering the giveaway!

  • Rob

    Love it, yeah I just started reading about CD Baby’s history and Sivers…agreed.

  • Tomas Benadik

    As for lifestyle design blogs, one of the best I read is and recently also – plenty of good stuff there, written with style and energy. And now also this one 🙂

  • Rob

    Thanks, is it really “”? because that’s not a live site just yet.

  • RO

    I read and They give me great ideas on how to live a more fulfilling life.

    I just retweeted on my account @oKeefey

  • RO

    I read and I read the former for practical strategies to enhance my life and the later for inspiration.

    I just retweeted your post – hope I win!

  • Tropical MBA & Lifestyle Business Podcast because it’s actual business guys talking about business =)

  • Sivers is awesome.

  • Rob

    I’ve heard it’s incredibly hard to cycle into, two hours every 6 I believe it is. Thanks for dropping by, it’ll be an interesting book thats for sure.

  • Rob

    Thanks for the thoughts Michael, I’m expecting the same!

  • Michael Reese

    A stunning analysis of science as it applies to the human body. The introduction alone is mindblowing, as Tim demolishes preconceptions about nearly everything – prepare to be shocked into THINKING, not just following opinion.

  • I don’t really read lifestyle design books or blogs. But I’m super curious to know how he gets by on two hours of sleep per day (I have a hunch it’s the Ubermensch sleep thing). As a busy grad student, it would be great to actually get that to work.

  • Super excited for it!

  • Rob

    Derek Silvers is new to me. Quote from his website that lit me up… “Derek Sivers is really sincerely driven by wanting to help people.” NPR … thanks Cody.

  • Rob

    Nice share, checked him out and his reports are great…I’d like to generate as specific goals.

    Affiliates/Adsense are a much more stat centric but I’m sure repeatable goals can and should be outlined for the type of business I’m building and during excursions into affiliate land. Thanks!

  • Rob

    Thanks Lucas, nice shares. I breezed through Getting Real a while back, inspirational and action oriented…kickin suggestions and thanks for the background comment…it was time for a little something.

  • Cody McKibben

    I’ll add: Sovereign Man, Muselife, Tropical MBA, Location 180, Virtual Business Lifestyle, Derek Sivers, and your site of course Rob!

  • Recently i found Erics blog over at
    Been good to see him building up his passive income & share his ideas.

    Rob, recently I picked up a copy of ‘Getting Real’ by 37signals. Those guys are just on the money, and their philosophy I think can be applied across other disciplines, other than web app development.
    I got a lot out of Inbound Marketing, which isn’t brand new, but the lessons are pricesless.. gave me a little more insight into sales funnel/marketing/nurturing leads, which I can apply elsewhere.
    For some light reading, see if you can find ‘The Manual: How to have a number one the easy way’ – its written by some guys back in the 80s who analysed the music market, dissected the theory behind it (or created the theory) and then worked the system to get a number 1 record. Pretty cool, and applicable across other fields.

    (Like the new background by the way)

  • Rob

    Thanks for sharing David, I agree.

  • I’ve reading through Corbett Barr’s Fee Pursuits blog for a little while now. A lot of great ideas and personal testimonials on how to craft the lifestyle we all dream about.

  • Rob

    Thanks for adding Ross. I was just helping out Ashley yesterday, she’s got some fire going on over there! Keep up with any other LD blogs?

  • Nice one! I’m stoked about the book as well. Reading the Four Hour Work Week pretty much got me into this whole lifestyle design thing. Tim’s blog is great as is Chris Guillebeau’s. I have to say Ashley’s The Middle Finger Projects is one of my fav’s too. Excited to talk about the new book with everyone!

  • Thrilling Heroics, The Middle Finger Project, Ridiculously Extraordinary, Man vs Debt,…I have a few dozen I subscribe to 🙂 There are a lot of variations and good sites out there.

  • Rob

    I met him as well on his tour, great dude, glad to see his success and someone who executes. Read any others?

  • I read as many as I can. I met Chris Guillebeau a week ago, but I’ve read his blog since it began. ( is working that way. Though not really a “lifestyle design” blog, it fits under that umbrella if you have to niche me 🙂

  • Rob

    Nice, love his blog, thanks Chris!

  • Awesome. I currently read Chris Guillebau’s excellent Unconventional Blog, as well as the Exile Lifestyle. 🙂
