A.J. Jacobs' latest obsession with health is a riot. I love how he investigates each dimension of the human body with a childlike curiosity, and he eagerly adopts experts' recommendations with the openness and passion of a new religious convert. But in the end, his quest to be the healthiest man alive led him to be very unhappy. All this striving was time consuming, expensive, and alienating. The novelty of trying out new fitness routines and health gadgets became tiresome and annoying to his family and friends. This is a fun read with some insightful findings about the latest health trends.
