How do you NOT buy this book?

I’m a big believer in the old adage “If it seems too good to be true, it probably is”. But if a book promises to make you gorgeous and get you laid more without selling your soul to the devil how can you not try it?

THE 4-HOUR BODY by Timothy Ferris is a bestseller for a reason, my friends… you have to at least give it a shot, right?

At least based on the hype, Ferris is selling a magic pill.  A quick easy way to get what you want without having to work for it (much, anyway).  And guess what… I’m buying.   It’s like THE SECRET phenomenon all over again.  Why not try it?  If there is even the possibility that thinking positive could bring me a million bucks and George Clooney, I’m willing to give it a shot.

And if buying THE 4-HOUR BODY can make me superhuman, why not?

I’m getting a copy.  Seriously.  I’ll post the before and after pictures 4 hours after it arrives.

    Not sure what this book proposes, but there is definitely a mind-body connection to many things which is being documented and presented at interesting workshops. L3ots of scientific studies being conducted on this. Think positive thoughts, meditate on happy stuff, and different areas of the brain light up and immune system strengthening chemicals get released. Placebos can work for some. And we also can help create health in others by the way we treat them. Good to always rem. They are receptive and we treat them well, we can have an effect on their body chemistries. Saw this a lot when I worked with adoptive families. See it a lot in the field of healing touch and therapeutic massage. It’s more about total health and well being, rather than just focusing on the superficial stuff, though, like on whether people have wrinkles or whether they are physically acceptable or not to society. I don’t know of any book that works on wrinkles (lol), but maybe when one reaches the point of true health and well being, they don’t matter any more. I am not there yet, but always trying to move in that direction. 🙂

    Not sure exactly what’s in this book but if it’s as vapid as The Four-Hour Workweek, count me out. That book was all about cutting corners to make money and gather stuff. Yuck. No sense of purpose, meaning, or character. Not for me, thanks.

      Fair enough Kevin! But you gotta admit – the title and sub-title are some good marketing. Appealing to the corner cutter everywhere.
