The 4-Hour Body is NOW OUT – Live Q&A Today, New Trailer, Free Books, and Much More


Trailer concepted and produced by the amazing Epipheo Studios for


Today is the day.

After three years of work, The 4-Hour Body is available everywhere!

I work very hard on my books. My first and previous book, The 4-Hour Workweek, has an 5-star average on Amazon with more than 1,000 reviews, and it has been a Top-10 Amazon Customer Favorite:

Compared to that book, I spent 3 TIMES longer on the new book — The 4-Hour Body — to ensure it worked with men and women, with young and old.

It is the definitive choose-your-own-adventure guide to the human body, ranging from fat-loss and muscular gain to sex and sleep. Everything is tested and it all works.

I have now negotiated the price down to a mere $14.50.

Why? Because I’m proud of this book and want it to be #1 on The New York Times bestseller list. That said, I have a very tough opponent. The Guinness Book of World Records is #1 for this week every year. Last I looked, Guinness was barely ahead of me:

With your help, I can beat them.


In this post, and until 12 midnight Friday (Dec. 17), I will:

– Offer complementary “thank you” gifts to anyone who has, or will, buy a copy of The 4-Hour Body.
– Offer $260 of kick-ass goods to anyone who buys 3 copies (costs less than $45).
– Offer a free $16,000 trip to the person who promotes The 4-Hour Body best this week.

In addition to getting new readers, I also want to reward people who pre-ordered long ago, and help readers who missed past prizes due to tech glitches. So, here we go, one at a time…

One Book

If you buy, or have bought, The 4-Hour Body in any format:

Until Friday at midnight PST, you can get a FREE digital PDF copy of The 4-Hour Workweek (usually $20) and a free copy of “The Slow-Carb Diet: Volume 1″ (not available anywhere else), both hosted by E-Junkie.

If you haven’t already, buy The 4-Hour Body for about $14.50 on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, or through any other retailer. If you buy it in a book store, keep the receipt. Only hardcover counts for the bestseller lists, so it’s easily the most helpful for me (please!), but you can buy any format: Audiobook (abridged), Kindle, Nook, etc..

Fill out this short form. You’ll get the PDFs within 72 hours.

Three Books (US shipping addresses for the books, please)

If you want to buy 3 copies, you can get $260 of bonuses for less than $45 of books:

– 1 bottle of Super Cissus RX ($45), one of my staple supplements.
– 3-month Daily Burn Pro membership ($30)
– 1-year of ‘Performance Menu Journal’ Magazine ($30)
– 3 months Evernote Premium (first 500 only!) ($15)
“Find Your First Profitable Idea” with Ramit Sethi ($100 for full course)
– Digital copy of “The 4-Hour Workweek” ($20)
– The Slow-Carb Cookbook ($20)

Buy three copies on Amazon or elsewhere.

Fill out this short form. Done.

Promote your heart out, live like a rockstar

If you want to go for the gold, get amped and promote The 4-Hour Body this week (deadline is 12 midnight PST, Friday) and tell me what you did in the comments. Measure your impact (clicks, sales, etc.) whenever possible.

If you are the best promoter, judged by me and a panel of friends, you get to pick one trip of a lifetime… for free. I will almost definitely be in attendance:

8-Day Argentina Snow Adventure in Patagonia
10-Day Private Tour of India, including Miss India

How to promote? That’s up to you. E-mail your friends, share links (like on Facebook, join relevant LinkedIn groups, give a copy to a popular radio station as a giveaway… it’s entirely up to you!

Here are the descriptions:

8-Day Argentina Snow Adventure in Patagonia

Also includes roundtrip economy airfare from and back to the U.S. I’m almost 100% that I’ll be there, as I LOVE Argentina, especially Patagonia. Provided by Powderquest — check ’em out. Yoga in between runs, if you like? Malbec or hot chocolate? Yes, please.

    • Where are the Bonus Materials?

      I bought the book and read it. Its GREAT and worth much more than its price. Dont think about it and just buy it! I began implementing some of the weight loss suggestions even before finishing the book. Tim really breaks it down to make it easy.

      However, the book list numerous Bonus Material (Removing Stubborn Thigh Fat, etc.) available on the website using passwords hidden in the book (like he did with the 4HWW), but I cant find them anywhere on the web.

      HELP PLEASE !!


  1. Hi Tim,
    Good luck with the launch, I’ve read the sample chapter and loved it!

    I’m trying to order the Kindle version as I’m in the UK, and want to start reading it now but It says its not available yet!?

    Could you look into this?



  2. 2 books ordered here (actually pre ordered months ago). Thanks for the all the bonuses that you are offering everyone. Good luck with your new book and making it to #1.


  3. Heya Tim,

    I am really looking forward to reading your book, I was one of the first to pre-order your book through amazon months ago (within a minute after your request) but now I feel a bit sad…

    Not only has the price come down since then (I am paying 24 dollars + shipping according to Amazon) but also the delivery time has been growing out of proportion. Normally I am very content with their standard shipping, but now I am informed that I will get your book somewhere in the last half of January 2011. Is there some difference in the Amazon batch between the pre-ordered ones and the normally ordered ones? Frankly, running to my local bookstore to get it seems like a far better deal than pre-ordering….

    I know this is not your fault and you cannot help this but I felt the need to post it somewhere…. I just want to read your book and start my new fitness regime next year :D

    Best regards,


  4. Why the hell is amazon so slow on sending this book!! I want to have it right now. Amazon will send it to me on saturday the 18th, but I bought it a few months ago. Damn it!
    And even the try, getting the ebook included in the special gift package didn’t quite work out, I haven’t got it yet, but I so wanna read it right know.

    I loved the 4hww and I think 4 hour body will be usable in a much bigger variety of areas in life!

    Thanks for sharing your thoughts Tim.



  5. Tim, congratulations with having your book out today!

    Can’t wait to read it so i just bought the Kindle version while waiting on the hardcover from hopshopgo! :)

    I’m very curious if the big bonus packages (1.000 up to 10.000 books) are sold! Should be nice for your ‘becoming number 1′ goal!

    (I see you removed the ‘“Find Your First Profitable Idea” with Ramit Sethi’ course from the list of bonuses when you buy one book, is this still available for the land rush people? Just asking because the form is identical to the land rush one ;))


  6. Are we going to have to wait a lot for the spanish translation? I prefear to wait a litlle bit to be sure of understanding everything!

    My best wishes from Madrid, Spain. Your first book is still en my top 3 ;)


  7. Tim,

    Although I can’t get a post up by this Friday, I will promote it for sure. I have a big fitness list and a High-Traffic Fitness Blog. I pre-ordered it a couple of weeks ago and jazzed to get my hands on this!



  8. Hello Tim,

    Just a promotion idea for you: Steve Pavlina sent an electronic copy of his book “personal development for smart people” for every blogger who write a review about his book and give a link to his web site.

    (And he put these bloggers’ review links in his web site)

    This way you’ll guarantee a lot of links and increase your pagerank naturally.

    If you send me a free electronic copy of your book, I’ll write a review in my blog and send you the link. (I’m a Turkish blogger, so you can also get a Turkish review by this way)


    • If I recall right and it was what Tim did with his 4HW book. I believe he continue to do this concept but market it differently.

      I am curious how TIm did and I hope he share his strategy.


  9. Good luck against Guinness, nice adversary, but they don’t make great beer, so you’ll do great. Touch wood.

    I’ve got 5 copies on the way to Oz, but I’m travelling in Vietnam and hungry for the book, so here comes the Kindle edition…

    Is the facebook live chat the one included with the previous promo?

    Emailing now for the trip…


  10. As the shipping costs to deliver to Singapore are around $50 on Amazon, I went for the Kindle version… Sorry not to help you for the NYT list.


  11. I went a little crazy and bought the 30 books via EventBrite. I don’t think the supplement/DailyBurn/Evernote portion was included with that. If I send my receipt for the 30 book purchase can I get in on these extras as well?

    Thanks Tim, I’m stoked!


  12. Hey Tim,

    I was really amazed when I read about your promotions. As luck would have it, I just started a blog about my Four Hour Body Experience. It is really new but I will be populating it with as much content as humanly possible this week. I imagine that once the book is in my hands, finding interesting content to talk about will be no problem.

    I really think it will be a good promoter for the book as well as a personal tool to keep me on track as I attempt to transform my health and fitness.



  13. Quick question…

    I ordered 5 books through the promotion this weekend on Eventbrite. I am a little concerned about that process. I haven’t seen any information other than the “Eventbrite Ticket”.

    When do we expect those to ship?

    I’m considering buying 3 more today for presents for other people, but I want to make certain all my previous orders are in the queue.

    After today I will have ordered a total of 9 books…

    I am DYING to read this book…probably going to store to buy today, wish my pre-ordered copies were here!


    • Hi,
      I’ve worked out that if you temporarily transfer your account to the, you can get the book and then transfer back to – just ‘manage your kindle’ and change your address.
      Good luck!


  14. Dude, now I understand what’s going through the heads of all those Harry Potter fanatics hanging out in costume till midnight at Barnes and Noble waiting for the latest installment in the series. Never in my life have I awaited a new book with more anticipation or excitement than 4HB, and can’t wait get fired into my copy later today. Congrats and best wishes!
