Summary
Having sanctified himself in The Year of Living Biblically and sharpened his mind in The Know-It-All, A.J. Jacobs had one feat left in the self-improvement trinity: to become the healthiest man in the world. The task was massive. From the caveman workout to veganism, from the treadmill desk to extreme chewing, Drop Dead Healthy teems with hilarity and warmth and pushes our culture's assumptions - and obsessions - about what makes good health.
