Drop Dead Healthy by A.J. Jacobs

Clear rating

This whole genre of journalists deciding that they could make money from a series of really rather silly episodes is most amusing. A.J. Jacobs doesn't disappoint in this respect and even adds some vaguely interesting facts and things-we-ought-to-do. Unfortunately, amusing as it is, this genre also suffers from one major defect, all the books in it are entirely forgettable just as the journalists columns were. So I don't remember any tips to get healthy, stay healthy, be more beautiful and live longer. If you want some, just read one of the many instructive books from that even larger and even more forgettable genre, Self Help.

I might have done, but I've forgotten them now!
