Drop Dead Healthy
One Man's Humble Quest for Bodily PerfectionLarge Print - 2012
Hospitalized with a freak case of tropical pneumonia, goaded by his wife, and ashamed of a soft middle-aged body, AJ. Jacobs felt compelled to change his ways and get healthy. And he didn't want only to lose weighty, or finish a triathlon, or lower his cholesterol. He wanted maximal total health. He consulted an army of experts. He subjected himself to dozens of different workouts. And he took in a cartload of diets. He bought gadgets and helmets, earphones and juicers. The story of his transformation will give you occasion to reflect on the body's many mysteries and the ultimate pursuit of health: a well-lived life. Book jacket.
