"While writing "The 4-Hour Body", I conducted thousands of tests and experiments and consulted with more than a hundred scientists, doctors, and world-class athletic coaches. It was a three-year quest to find the smallest inputs that create the largest outputs. On the endurance front, one name came up again and again: Brian MacKenzie. If you want to go from zero to marathon in 12 weeks, or perhaps run 100 miles and dead-lift two to three times your body weight without struggle, he's your secret weapon. Listen and learn."--Timothy Ferriss, #1 "New York Times" best-selling author of "The 4-Hour Body"

The book is unbelievably detailed but easy to understand thanks to the well-presented photos and text. It's broken down into five main sections: Running, Cycling, Swimming, Strength & Conditioning, and Mobility. There's also a small section on nutrition.
If you can get to a CrossFit gym, that will be a huge help to you in following the programme, but it's not mandatory. Having access to any sort of gym and free weights, plus some simple space to do push ups and burpees is all you need. A great read, and will make you question your own training regimen.
I have to say that I think this book is excellent.
Everything is explained step by step and in great detail. In describing the techniques there are pictures of all the important points along with Do's and Dont's and common mistakes. I also like the fact that they are pictures and not just illustrations.
He describes everything very clearly and in easily understood language.
This is now my go to reference on running and cycling technique.
If you follow the POSE method of swimming however this is not the described technique in this book.
