Some of the other things he shares in the book, I'm not in such agreement with. All of the supplements he recommends won't work for everyone (and for some people, which he does say in the book, can be dangerous). I don't think you need all of that extra supplementation. His diet alone should give you great results (which he also says, the supplements are just to give you an edge).
We also call can't afford the tests he puts himself through to make sure everything is working and tailored to our needs. However, he does give you that warning, and says you can pick and choose what you want to from his book. That's why the four stars. I think the book has a lot of valuable things to say, but also some fluff.
As I said, I am a fan of Ferriss. I think he engages in some hyperbole from time to time. I have a feeling if I researched every anecdote (I only researched a few, but comments on his blog lead to questions about others), I'd find they were all true, but maybe something was left out. That's fine. That's marketing. Just don't take everything here at face value.
One good thing is that you can find almost all of this information on his blog, and he's very open with the comments as far as I can tell. He doesn't delete critical ones, and responds to questions.
As he says, do your own research. Find out what parts you want to use and believe. I think trying to modify your diet and exercise routine at all is worth trying, and if anyone can make you believe you can do it, it's Tim Ferriss. I think he could "sell ice cubes to Eskimos." Reading this book makes you FEEL like you can become superhuman, and motivation is part of the solution.
Great read and reference. I checked it out from the library 3 times before finally just buying it, and I've used it hundreds of times as a reference. It helped me drop 20 lbs of fat, cut my workouts from 6+ hours a week ("doing" P90X) to about 2 hours a week (that's with a 1 hour yoga session) with better results, and helped me run a marathon with just 11 weeks of prep!! Most importantly, it jump started my understanding of how to better take care of myself. Thanks Tim!
