The Four Hour Body: Video Trailer

I’m a big fan of Tim Ferris‘s blog and his book The Four Hour Work Week. Here’s a trailer for his new book (to be released this month), The 4–Hour Body. Enjoy.

Over at The Huffington Post, they have a link to this video, along with a poll asking for reader opinions on the book. Here’s the results so far (doesn’t show number of completes yet…but the poll has only been open for a few hours so far)

One thought on “The Four Hour Body: Video Trailer”

  1. The “15 minute orgasm” stuff is what got me to buy The 4-Hour Body. There is some good stuff in those two chapters – useful illustrations and a fairly straightforward approach from his trainers.

    While many of the ideas in the book were new to Tim, as he says, this information has been around since at least 1976. Of all the stuff in the book, sex seems to be one of the areas he has researched less. If these chapters are an example of Tim’s 80/20 rule – what he thinks is the 20% that produces 80% of the result, then I’d say what is in the book is closer to 10%, not 20% – there is a lot more available for both parties than what he describes. I’m guessing that as Tim’s research continues he’ll eventually wind up looking at the original source of this information.

    There is a lot of confusion on the web about the “15 minute” part – the book describes 15 minutes to get to orgasm, and many reader are confused or disappointed by this. The sources he mentions (Steve & Vera Bodansky, Lafayette Morehouse, One Taste) specifically discuss extended duration orgasms (orgasms lasting 15 minutes or an hour or three hours or more). Around the SF bay area, where Tim lives, there are actual demonstrations of varying length and intensity of female orgasm.

    Seems likely he is just getting started in this area – the way he describes it makes it seem like its a procedure you “do to a woman.” Hard to know what he was taught vs. what he retained. What I’ve seen from the the Lafayette Morehouse, folks who, as Tim says, invented this stuff – is that “doing” is a ride you both take together, she the wave, you the surfer, two bodies, one orgasm. And it doesn’t matter which of you is doing the doing, it works either way.
