I knew this was abridged, but.......

This audiobook is interesting and seems to be well done. The big problem with it is the false advertising in the description, which obviously is still identical to the one used for the hardcopy book. Many of the key topics (including 2hr sleep, reverse injuries, run 50k etc.) are not covered at all. They are key components of the books description page, but are left out of the audio entirely. Lame! Shame on whoever is in charge of selling this under false pretenses. I knew the book was abridged, but shouldn't it cover the highlighted points on Audibles' description page?

Abridgement Is A Rip-Off

I'm a huge Tim Ferriss fan. Waited until midnight to buy this on release day. I've purchased audio and multiple hardcopy versions of 4HWW (including a personalized autographed revised edition).

What I read in Four Hour Body was great. Unfortunately a ton is missing. The audiobook details say it's abridged, but promise information that is NOT contained in audiobook.

Missing info includes: Reaching Genetic Potential in 6 months, Running 50K in 12 weeks, Sleeping 2 Hours Per Day, Reverse Permanent Injuries, Add 150 Lbs to Lift in 6 Months, Pay For Beach Vacation w/ Hospital Visit.

I'm sure the unabridged book is great. And this rating would have many more stars if not for the false advertising of missing information.

Off to purchase kindle version now...
