Jacobs A python that swallowed a goat” AJ Jacobs felt compelled to change his ways and get healthy And he didn’t want only to lose weight or finish a triathlon or lower his cholesterol His ambitions were far greater maximal health from head to toe The task was epic He consulted an army of experts sleep consultants and sex clinicians nutritionists and dermatologists He subjected himself to dozens of different workouts from Strollercize classes to Finger Fitness sessions from bouldering with cavemen to a treadmill desk And he took in a cartload of diets raw foods veganism high protein calorie restriction extreme chew. This book is the latest stunt memoir by AJ Jacobs the man who previously worked on his mind by reading the encyclopedia and his spirit by living according to the Bible Now it s time for the body and Jacobs spent two years focusing on how to be healthier in all areas from his teeth to his toesWhen it comes to matters of health everyone has an opinion and they usually contradict each other Jacobs does a decent job of providing a balanced look at many of his subjects including whatever actual science may or may not be behind them through such moments as letting his toxin obsessed Aunt Marti banish his plastic shower curtain and conventional cleaning products while interviewing a medical professional who argues that our robust livers are than up to the task of dealing with the hazards modern living throws at usThough the subject of health can be a serious one the tone of this book is generally breezy and amusing with a couple of supposedly good for you laugh out loud moments thrown in It s also interesting to see the results of Jacobs experiments on himself though personal anecdote is an unreliable way of determining the overall effectiveness of a particular intervention it s the one that matters the most to us individually and the only tool we have to evaluate some of the outlandish ideas presentedI did enjoy this book and might have given it four stars if I wasn t already familiar with most of the information covered If I were someone who hadn t already spent a lot of time researching health however I would have found this a very accessible and inspiring guide to making positive health changes

Jacobs New York Times bestselling author and king of “immersion journalism” AJ Jacobs tackles his most challenging experiment yet a yearlong mission to radically improve every element of his body and mind from his brain to his fingertips to his absFrom the bestselling author of The Year of Living Biblically and The Know It All comes the true and truly hilarious story of one person’s uest to become the healthiest man in the world Hospitalized with a freak case of tropical pneumonia goaded by his wife telling him “I don’t want to be a widow at forty five” and ashamed of a middle aged body best described as “. Coffee is bad for youNo now they re saying it s good for youWell how can avocados be good for you They re full of fatYes but it s the good kind of fatThere s a good kind of fatAAAAaAAAAAaaaaaAAAYou can drive yourself nuts trying to figure out what is good for you and what is unhealthy Last time I checked being nuts was definitely UNhealthyLuckily AJ Jacobs is around to investigate using his own body as his guinea pig and give you the skinny on being healthy And yes being skinny is usually healthier dammit He tries fad diets exercise crazes and CPAP machines so you don t have to waste your time and money on things that don t work Onlysome things work for some people and not for others And some things work if you believe they work So there are no real answers here other than move eat less But if you re looking for a fun occasionally educational time read this book Hopefully while you re walking on a treadmillAs usual the best parts of Jacobs books are the really wacky yet undeniably true facts he manages to unearth like You have germs in your gut right now than humans that ever lived on earth Graham crackers were invented to uell the passions in hormonal adolescent boys If you spend lots of time reading on the toilet better order a case of Preparation H now prolonged sitting whilst shitting causes hemorrhoids THIS irresistible uote by a renowned urologist The penis is the dipstick of the body s health And did you know that musical conductors live such long lives because they spend so much time flapping their arms aboutThat last one impressed me so much I ve made an attempt to move my arms a bit wherever I go Yes I look like a crazy person Yes people are laughing at me All I can say is laugh now I ll be that old old lady at your funeral wildly swinging her arms as she laughs and laughs

Jacobs Ing and dozens He bought gadgets and helmets earphones and juicers He poked and he pinched He counted and he measured The story of his transformation is not only brilliantly entertaining but it just may be the healthiest book ever written It will make you laugh until your sides split and endorphins flood your bloodstream It will alter the contours of your brain imprinting you with better habits of hygiene and diet It will move you emotionally and get you moving physically in surprising ways And it will give you occasion to reflect on the body’s many mysteries and the ultimate pursuit of health a well lived life. AJ Jacobs is getting tired and flabby and I m talking about his book writing not his physical condition He has done the same gimmick for a number of books now where he transforms his life by giving his all to a specific subject and it s just not that interesting any It lacks creativity and proves him to be somewhat dim wittedIn this case he tries to follow all the advice books diets and research on health The problem is that there are thousands to choose from and many of them are contradictory So he focuses on some of the weird ones like the guys who live like cavemen and think we should hunt meat and eat it raw Instead of this coming across like an intelligent study of the subject it seems like one big jokeHis writing style is very self centered and that gets dull fast He s just not that interesting of a person and while he s self deprecating he also is very unaware of how disgusting or insulting he can be His subtle put downs of his wife family and friends isn t funnySo if you ve read his other books this one isn t much different and certainly is far from the best If this is your first exposure to Jacobs you may find it somewhat interesting but it s overdone and not the taut review of the subject that it could be What would make an interesting magazine article makes for a very boring book
