Description

THINNER, BIGGER, FASTER, STRONGER 

Join author Tim Ferriss as he shares the incredible experiments he's done over 10 years to beat genetics and achieve the impossible…for himself and more than 200 men and women aged 18 to 70. 

You don't need better genetics or more discipline. You need immediate results that compel you to continue. This is an abridged edition. 

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

I knew this was abridged, but.......

This audiobook is interesting and seems to be well done. The big problem with it is the false advertising in the description, which obviously is still identical to the one used for the hardcopy book. Many of the key topics (including 2hr sleep, reverse injuries, run 50k etc.) are not covered at all. They are key components of the books description page, but are left out of the audio entirely. Lame! Shame on whoever is in charge of selling this under false pretenses. I knew the book was abridged, but shouldn't it cover the highlighted points on Audibles' description page?

A Great Disappointment

I broke my rule - do not get an Abridgement - because they are so often poorly done. This is a severe disappointment. Entire sections have been cut from the book. Why did Mr. Ferriss agree to this? I listen to 80 - 100 books a year. This is a poor way to treat a loyal listener. Get this book for what it is, a book that has been abridged by cutting entire sections. :-(

Great info but missing a ton

I thought the info in this book was awesome, and I really like Tim Ferriss, but hald the things that the description said this audiobook would cover, didn't even get touched.

Abridgement Is A Rip-Off

I'm a huge Tim Ferriss fan. Waited until midnight to buy this on release day. I've purchased audio and multiple hardcopy versions of 4HWW (including a personalized autographed revised edition).

What I read in Four Hour Body was great. Unfortunately a ton is missing. The audiobook details say it's abridged, but promise information that is NOT contained in audiobook.

Missing info includes: Reaching Genetic Potential in 6 months, Running 50K in 12 weeks, Sleeping 2 Hours Per Day, Reverse Permanent Injuries, Add 150 Lbs to Lift in 6 Months, Pay For Beach Vacation w/ Hospital Visit.

I'm sure the unabridged book is great. And this rating would have many more stars if not for the false advertising of missing information.

Off to purchase kindle version now...

Great Author, Great Subject, Bad Abridgement

I knew going in that this audio book was abridged but wow! It's not abridged, it is butchered. Looking at the original book's table of contents on the author's website it is seems that more than half the book is missing. Literally there is at least one section of the abridged audio book that references a chapter that was excluded!

I would love to see an unabridged version of this book available on audio book. Looks like I'll have to get an eBook version. Save your money or credits until a full rendering of this one is made available. Really too bad because the actual subject matter is great and I am a fan of Tim's.

Actually, an abridgement of Tim Ferriss's work really makes little sense to me. Tim really writes cheaters guides (not a critisim at all). He's giving you the fast track info. Why shorten it even more?

Beware of this abridged version

I was excited about this book because I read 4-Hour Workweek, and I've really liked some of Tim Ferris's work, but after listening to this, I'm a bit disappointed. I think that Audible should do a better job of making it clear that a book is abridged, but that's an aside. This is a snippet of the book, and although parts are interesting, a lot of what's in this snippet has either been posted on his website or is common knowledge, at least to bodybuilders. Still, if you want to get an overview of what the print copy could offer it could be worth it. It's the type of book you'll need the print copy for anyway so that you can have it for reference.

Buy the Book - not Abridged

When i bought this i was under the impression it was un-abridged, (i like the other reviewer awaited 12:00 and bought it early in the morning maybe my eyes were playing tricks on me) after getting through about half of the audiobook i stopped by a book store to check out the hard cover... almost 600 pages, 2.9 pounds! to say that there is some things missing is an understatement for sure.

The narrator is a bit annoying but tolerable. There is some useful info in here but overall if you want the most from this book you are going to have to buy the actual hardcover and read it.

Three stars because of all the missing information

Do not buy the abridged version

Abridged version is total ripoff, It is missing a lot of the book. Major sections ommited. Someone needs to correct this.

Buy the book not the audio.

I was extremely excited for this book but the information is nothing compared to the actual book. I went out and bought a copy when I noticed that many of the pieces were missing. I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THE BOOK! It's more like a manual and you just can't capture the essence in an audiobook.

What Everyone Else is Saying

Yeah.. it's a shame how chopped to pieces this version is. I was really looking forward to this book after reading the description. I have about 2 hours of the audio left and after seeing just how HUGE the hard copy actually is I knew that something strange was afoot.

This audio is a butchered version.. I'm going to assume it's for good reason, but I'm more than annoyed at wasting a credit on this. I'll finish it, and I'm sure it will be good info, but there's so many topics in the description that I want to conquer and I'm peeved at having to pay twice to do that.

Endlich mal ein Buffet!

Ich wog 106 kg und ich musste einfach mal was tun. Aber was mich an Diäten so nervt ist, dass sie nicht in Relation zueinander stehen. Für welchen Menschen ist Glyx besser, für welchen Kohlsuppe und wer sollte mit Metabolic anfangen?

Ich mag Tim Ferris' pragmatische und unkomplizierte Art und darum bin ich sehr dankbar, dass es dieses Buch zum Thema gibt.

Das Buch handelt nicht nur von Diäten, vom abnehmen und dergleichen; es handelt auch von Muskelaufbau, von Libido und Schlafmangel, von Fehlschlägen und Tiefpunkten und was Ferris daraus gelernt hat. Es ist ein sehr persönliches, unkonventionelles Buffet rund um Körperliches, wo sich jeder das Thema rauspicken kann was ihn gerade interessiert. Ich habe das Buch gehört und als ich damit fertig war habe ich es mir gleich als Buch gekauft - zum nachschlagen. Denn das werde ich sicher öfters.

Timothy Ferris ist hier gnadenlos direkt und pragmatisch - er stellt z.B. ein paar hocheffiziente Diäten vor, legt diese nebeneinander und spricht Empfehlungen aus.

Dieses Buch ist einfach eine Abkürzung, ein Appetizer für eigene Experimente und eine Einstiegsdroge in das Thema "mein Körper und ich"

Interesting but the Author is too much impressed by himself

There are some good ideas, but is approach of doing little with maximum impact is not convincing too me. Furthermore I got annoyed by all the I am great stories about himself.

A different and funny guide

The title really says it all, I enjoyed listening to the book and the way it was read out, it is packed with many interesting and certainly valid points, tips and tricks although sometimes it got pretty technical and thus harder to follow and remember basic key points. But definitely worth a listen!

Funny, informative, witty, ingenious!
This book covers so many physical topics yet nails them all. I'm feeling very inspired at the moment !
