Produktinformation

Produktbeschreibungen

Pressestimmen

"Packed with fascinating information and studies from experts, the book is a highly entertaining and sharply written personal odyssey ... The perfect book to slip in the suitcase before exposing that shameful midriff on the beach." (Daily Mail)

"A.J. Jacobs is very, very bad for your health. He will keep you up reading til 2 a.m., disturbing your circadian rhythms, making you sleep through breakfast and overeat at lunch. He is delicious. He's habit-forming. He will give you infectious titters and terminal glee. Don't let that stop you. Indulge." (Mary Roach, author of 'Bonk' and 'Packing for Mars')

"Who wouldn't want to be fitter, happier, more productive? In this riotous, madcap book, AJ Jacobs sets himself an ambitious goal: to become the person we all wish we could be. It's vintage AJ. Do your future self a favour and buy this book." (Joshua Foer, author of 'Moonwalking with Einstein')

"I couldn't wait to get my hands on this book, and once again, the brilliant A.J. Jacobs had me laughing out loud - and also deciding to change the way I live. Drop Dead Healthy is a rare mixture of the hilarious, the absurd, and the scientifically sound. Who knew it could be so entertaining to read about broccoli puree and shoeless jogging?" (Gretchen Rubin, author of 'The Happiness Project')

"His quirky tone makes it undeniably hilarious … Amongst the laughter you’ll find genuine fitness and nutrition tips from someone who is willing to try anything, no matter how embarrassing it might be." (Huffington Post)

Format: Taschenbuch
A. J. Jacobs, bekannt für kurios anmutende Experimente (vgl. z. B. The Year of Living Biblically: One Man's Humble Quest to Follow the Bible as Literally as Possible) hat sich ca. 25 Monate darauf konzentriert, sein Leben möglichst gesund zu gestalten. Diese 25 Monate werden in dem Buch beschrieben, wobei jeweils ein Körperorgan im Vordergrund steht (z. B. der Magen) und ein damit im Zusammenhang stehendes Thema (z. B. Ernährung) dargestellt wird.
Die Erkenntnisse, die Jacobs dabei gewinnt, sind interessant zu lesen, allerdings nicht immer bahnbrechend spektakulär:
Man soll verstärkt darauf achten, wie viel man isst. Bewährte Methoden sind viel Kauen oder ein kleiner Teller. Was man isst, lässt sich wissenschaftlich schwer ableiten; Konsens sind Vollwertkost (Brokkoli statt Pommes Frites), weniger Zucker, weniger Salz.
Bei Fitness-Training wird „high intensity“ empfohlen - ein Intervalltraining, sowohl für „Ausdauertraining“ (cardio) als auch für das Krafttraining.
Auch viele mehr oder weniger kuriose Aspekte werden thematisiert - vom Toilettengang und Händewaschen über das notwendige Maß an Schlaf und Testosteron bis zum richtigen Gang („stick your butt out“) und zur richtigen Haltung.
Dabei geht Jacobs auch auf „technische Unterstützung“ ein: Er empfiehlt Lärmschutz-Kopfhörer (vgl. Bose® QuietComfort® 15 Acoustic Noise Cancelling® Kopfhörer, silber/schwarz) und generell das Messen (Quantified Self), z. B.

Really funny book. But also reach in information, I really enjoyed reading it.
Also the ending is really good - keeps expectations and real-world in balance somehow.
If you are interested in living healthier but are not fanatical about it you will like it.

Ich finde die Bücher von A. J. Jacobs immer sehr gut. Der erste Teil, bei dem er die ganze Enzyklopaedia Britannica gelesen hat, war schon gut, das nächste Buch, bei dem er ein Jahr nach den Regeln der Bibel gelebt hat, hat mir noch ein bisschen besser gefallen. Dieses Buch, in dem er (auf zum Teil seltsam anmutende Art und Weise) versucht, der gesündeste Mensch der Welt zu werden, kommt nicht ganz an das zweite Buch heran, ist aber dennoch lesenswert.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Funny Read for We Armchair Exercisers (not true - I do work out!) 30. Mai 2015
Von Penelope De Paoli - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I have to hand it to Jacobs, he sucked me in. Our dentist had the book in his waiting room and I managed to read a chapter at each visit. Then the book became too compelling and too funny to put down. I had to order one of my own. Jacobs has a mighty understanding family and a great sense of fun. He subjects himself to all manner of healthy eating and acting to assess the efficacy of each program - to often hilarious result. Fun. And he learned to take better care of himself in the process.

4.0 von 5 Sternen As entertaining as the title promises 18. Januar 2013
Von jenpnc - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com

I downloaded this book onto my Kindle before heading to Australia for a 3 week vacation. While there, I ended up in the emergency room with a situation that required admission to the hospital, then surgery. While I laid there in the hospital not going to the Great Barrier Reef,my husband brought me my Kindle and I read this book. I laughed out loud when I read the catalyst for AJ's getting healthy: he had landed in the hospital in Jamaica with pneumonia while on vacation. Immediately I felt a bond,and his book definitely helped the hours pass.

AJ Jacobs writes in the same easy, conversational way he did in his other two books. In this one, he commits himself to getting healthy; and as usual, does the 360-degree research, interviewing completely opposite points of view. He dives into it 100%, doing offbeat things like running caveman-like through Central Park (one of my favorite parts), typing while on a treadmill, wearing noise reducing headphones (it was very interesting to read the various decibel levels of everyday noises). Along the way, he is inspired in different ways by his eccentric aunt, his grandfather, and his wife Julie.

AJ Jacobs tackles his projects very methodically and never takes anyone's word as the last word. I did feel the book lagged a bit; maybe he got tired on the treadmill, but my sense is that it lagged because it took so long to write and there was just so much he wanted to cover that it almost overwhelmed him. I very much enjoyed it and along the way, I learned a few things. Now, I am off to eat a few walnuts.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Fun to listen to but hardly life-changing 21. Januar 2013
Von Rushmore - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verifizierter Kauf
Yes, A.J. Jacobs has tackled a lot of ambitious topics in his life, but you need to know from the git-go that any book he writes is basically about him - his marriage, his family, his quirky take on the world at large.

This is my second A.J. audio book - I also listened to My Life As An Experiment. I doubt that I would ever sit down to read one of his books, but it makes for great entertainment while I'm knitting.

Several other reviewers, even those who count themselves as fans, have pointed out that AJ's schtick is getting a little tired. The impression is of a guy who's basically willing to try anything, he's got some money from the publisher to go out and have some adventures with, and he'll tell you all about it so you don't have to try it at home. Like many male humor authors, he's got a sensible wife at home. For good measure, he also has 3 adorable sons, an esteemed grandfather, an eccentric aunt, and assorted other relatives.

An A.J. Jacobs book is basically a smorgasbord - you get to try a little bit of a lot of things. He does not seem to commit to any individual measure, but you have to admire his commitment to getting healthy in general. The Appendices do include several lists of the most useful knowledge and habits he gained from the experience. If you are looking for useable content to apply to your own fitness quest, you might want to start there.

Jacobs obsesses over the details. At the end of the month he will tell you how many miles he has walked on his treadmill or how many meals included bok choy. Some listeners might find this relentless rundown to be a bit much.

A.J.'s reading style is perky enough. I believe he once compared himself to a chipmunk when describing his voice.

If you approach this book expecting to be inspired, motivated or educated, you might well be disappointed. I expected to be entertained and I was.

4.0 von 5 Sternen A.J.Jacobs is hysterical. 4. November 2016
Von TechnologyLovingMom - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com

A.J.Jacobs is hysterical. We read this for book club, and I was very glad that we had picked it. I think the author does a great job of pointing out how there are a million different fads in the health industry and that a lot of them contradict each other. Also, you can be what you think is super healthy and still get sick and die.

Von Robin Storey - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
This book wasn't what I expected - I expected it to be centred around diet and fitness regimes, and while it certainly dealt with a range of them, the author also decided to take each part of the body (even parts like ears and hands) and investigate ways to make them 'perfect.' It was an interesting way of tackling his quest, but I still would have preferred a thorough investigation of the myriad diets and exercise regimes out there - maybe a bit much for one man!

Nevertheless, I still enjoyed the book - even learnt a thing or two- and I really enjoy the author's sense of humour. I laughed out loud in several places, and judging from the book, his long-suffering wife Julie sounds just as funny.

In previous books, A.J.has investigated the intellectual life and the spiritual - what else is left? I wait with bated breath for his next book.
