"This book takes practical, real-world, time-in-the-trenches thinking to a whole other level. It’s not often I come across a training manual that teaches you how to eliminate chronic pain, balance your hormones, detox your body, maximize fat-burning efficiency, and even hack your brain waves. This truly is the last book you’ll ever need in order to master endurance, health, and life." (-Chris “Macca” McCormack, Ironman World Champion)

What I have found here is a lot of information that is not validated, totally general, often recurring to general topics, lacking depth and with not much valuable content.
There are many other books with real knowledge but is not this one. If you are new to endurance training this will confuse you, if you have some experience likely you would prefer a more serious approach as other authors do.
Even heart rate zones present high doubts compared with real clinical studies.
The book is quite bad because can lead to many athletes to a wrong training approach.

I also enjoyed the info about creating more efficient, smarter workouts-this section was actually a breath of fresh air.
Unfortunately, much of the rest of the book is simply bewildering and overwhelming. There' no question about Greenfield's passion about this subject. But even if you read through it (as I did) with the attitude that "I believe you Ben...everything you have to say...just tell me what I have to do"..ignoring the pages and pages of medical and scientific data, much of the advice is about the use of supplements and pharmaceuticals, expensive medical procedures, and the purchase of expensive/questionable exercise and health devices; as well as lots of "crazy uncle" advice: ground yourself to the earth's frequency when you sleep, wear magnetic bracelets, replace your shaving cream with $20/7 oz. tube of brown sticky paste to avoid getting poisoned, etc...
That being said, I waded through the book and found a few, valuable nuggets of info that more than justify the purchase price.
Use what works and discard the rest.
The book seems to be all about buying gadgets, supplements, and medical tests.
I got good tips about HIIT, some idea for my salads...but other than that I feel like I've wasted my time.
Fortunately, Ben Greenfield has done all of this for us.
I recommend almost no fitness books to my female audience. But this one is SO FULL of attentive detail to just about every exercise and health related hack I cannot help but recommend it. I even recommend it to people who are not athletes because it contains such a plethora of information on how the human body works.
Take, for example, problems with adrenal fatigue and mineral imbalances. Ben address insomnia in the book (of course) and two of the problems he addresses that cause insomnia are mineral imbalances and overtraining or stress. This is always the first section of books I flip to because I know these issues like the back of my hand. Ben nails the symptoms of the problems -- heart racing, pulse beating in your ears and throat, tired and wired feeling at night and during the day -- of adrenal and mineral related insomnia. I come across few health gurus who know the adrenal system so well, and for that I have nothing but profound gratitude for Ben and his work.
As well as just about a million other facts in the book and a million other attributes of it -- great clarity, profound research, insights and thoughtfulness from Ben. I'm a big fan of his list of "ten rules for becoming an ancestral athlete" which include 1) changing your lens, 2) being uncomfortable, 3) being comfortable, 4) work, 5) optimizing fertility, 6) eating the earth, 7) emptying the trash, 8) using science, 9) keeping a clear head, and 10) not fretting.
That's a list I can, and try to, live by. Thanks, Ben.
