Tim Ferriss Releases Table Of Contents For The 4-Hour Body

In a recent blog post, Tim Ferriss, the #1 New York Times Bestselling author for The 4-Hour Workweek, released the table of contents for his upcoming book, entitled, "The 4-Hour Body." The book is scheduled for release on December 14, 2010, which is in just enough time for Christmas.

Based on the book's video trailer and the following table of contents, I'm pretty excited to read what's inside, especially the information on weight loss, getting stronger, and a longer life. In fact, I just pre-ordered the book from Amazon at a special price of only $14.51.

Without further ado, check out what's inside.
