The 4-Hour Body Review
The 4-Hour Body is a ‘how-to’ book by entrepreneurial best-selling author of 4-Hour Work Week, Tim Ferriss.
Although only in his early to mid 30s, Tim Ferriss, has already experienced more in his life to date than the majority will in double or triple the amount of years.
Check out his bio if you’re in doubt.

My Overall Verdict
Ferriss is a very engaging author that gives you inspirational anecdotes of his own and others transformations whilst providing some scientific explanation for those inclined in that direction.
His approach is to give you the most essential information that will deliver you the bulk of the results – he is a large proponent of the Pareto principle or 80/20 Rule, which he covers in 4-Hour Work Week.
Overall, it is very good value at less than $15 on Amazon for over 500 pages of information that has the potential to have a positive impact on your life.
If you’re relatively new to the world of health and fitness and are lost at where to begin I think this is a good book to get started with and then branch out from there.
