Sitting at the pool yesterday afternoon, topless, atop the beautiful Icon At Brickell here in Miami, I espied some dude (also topless) reading a coverless tome. Was he merely preserving the cover of his book? Or perhaps was he hiding his reading material?
Anyways I instantly recognized the book. It was Tim Ferriss' - 4-Hour Body. (For my summary - click here.)
I mean the book is already a juggernaut. Personally I've incorporated a few things from it with tremendous success - stuff I'll discuss in a separate post.
But if you go and read Tim's blog and check out the comments you'll see that, in the mere month since the book release, he's persuaded/motivated untold numbers of people to completely alter their diet and exercise regimens.
Well, some people are all geeked up about losing 8-10 lbs...
And some others are waxing ornery. There are several people who claim they've adhered to his brutally bland no carb, no fruit, no sugar diet and haven't lost a single pound!
Sorry, but it's funny.
One guy in particular said that both he and his life partner went on the diet; that NEITHER of them has lost weight; that both of them have lost their *libido*; and that, as to be expected, crankiness is in the air!
Anyways eventually I chatted up the dude at the pool to get his thoughts on the book. But get this - lo and behold, only 1 minute into our dialogue and another topless guy next to us held up what he was reading, Tim Ferriss' other book - The 4-Hour Workweek! (For my summary - click here.)
Like him or not, one has to admit that Tim Ferriss is a bit of a demigod at the moment.
You haters will appreciate this.
