    It's dressed up as a miracle fix but it's actually a solid book for the most part. Just take the miracle fix anecdotes with a grain of salt.

    The main issue I have with it is that it doesn't hold together as a whole. There's like 3 different diets for different chapters, none of which I'd use long-term for a healthy lifestyle. It's interesting though and for the most part he's well researched and knows what he's talking about, despite the hype.

    4 Hour Body

    Liked the book. Tim puts his money where his mouth is with his personal experimentation. While I have tried to get my wife to go paleo, Tim's approach of 6 days on and 1 day of "feast" finally got her on the program. I think he is right. We all cheat, might as well plan for it.

    This has been my impression of the book so far (about half-way through).

    Some interesting ideas and you have to give the man credit for making himself a human guinea pig, but many of the insights on diet seemed way off. He chose Saturdays for his day of gluttony, literally stuffing himself to the point of being sick with everything from pizza to twinkies.. It would take me the rest of the weekend just to recover from that binge, who wants to be bloated and miserable like that..

    Sure, it's not for everyone and everything in it is not for me, but if you're willing to read it as it's intended to be read, as a 'choose your own adventure' book, then it can be quite interesting.

    But then I read a book every two days, so I don't put hours of thought into book purchases and consider it a success if it holds my interest for the time it takes to read it
    Did you know his next door neighbor as a kid was the dude who wrote all of the "choose your own adventure" books. Some of the characters in the books are named after he and his brother. The author let the kids read them to test them out and actually solicited their feedback before sending the final draft to the publishers.
