ANew York Timesbestseller in hardcover, a chronicle of A.J. Jacob’s mission to radically improve every element of his body and mind—from his brain to his fingertips to his abs.Having lifted his spirit inThe Year of Living Biblicallyand sharpened his mind inThe 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. First, he had to tackle a complicated web of diet and exercise advice, most of which is nonsensical, unproven, and contradictory. Second, he had to consult a team of medical advisers. And finally, he had to subject himself, over the course of two years, to a grueling regimen of exercises, a range of diets and nutritional plans, and a brutal array of techniques and practices to improve everything from his hearing to his sleep—all the while testing the patience of his long-suffering wife.Drop Dead Healthybursts with hilarity and warmth, overturning myths about what makes good health and allowing you to reflect on your own health, body, and eventual mortality.
