In modern sports, some athletes have managed to transcend their competition in a way that no one will ever forget: Jordan. Jeter. Ali. Williams. These elite legends have changed the game, achieved the unthinkable, and pushed their bodies to unbelievable limits. Joining their exclusive ranks is Tom Brady.
"Brady is the healthiest great champion the NFL has ever had, both physically and mentally" (Sally Jenkins, The Washington Post). The longtime New England Patriots quarterback, who in 2017 achieved his fifth Super Bowl win and fourth Super Bowl MVP award, is widely regarded as an athlete whose training and determination pushed him from a mediocre draft position to the most revered and respected professional football player of his generation.
In The TB12 Method, Tom Brady explains how he developed his groundbreaking approach to long-term fitness, presenting a comprehensive step-by-step guide to his personal practice. Brady offers the principles behind pliability, which is at the heart of a new paradigm shift and movement toward a more natural, healthier way of exercising, training, and living - and one that challenges some commonly held assumptions around health and wellness. Filled with lessons learned from Brady's own peak performance training and step-by-step action steps to help listeners develop and maintain their own peak performance, The TB12 Method also advocates for more effective approaches to strength training, hydration, nutrition, supplementation, cognitive fitness, recovery, and other lifestyle choices that dramatically decrease the risk of injury while amplifying and extending performance as well as quality of life.
After using his methods for over a decade, Brady believes that the TB12 approach has made him - and can make any athlete, male or female, in any sport and at any level - achieve his own peak performance. With instructions, drills, and in-depth case studies that Brady himself has used as well as personal anecdotes and experiences from on and off the field, The TB12 Method is the only book an athlete will ever need, a playbook from Brady himself that will change the game.

Would you listen to The TB12 Method again? Why?
To find the PDF, go into your Library (via the web) and next to the title, there will be a 'PDF' link. For further instructions, do a quick google search 'audible pdf download'. I saw everyone was having trouble finding it so I'm using my review to help :) love the book.

There have been a number of negative reviews about this book (i.e. ghost written, lack of science, personal commercial for TB12 products). I am the father of pro athletes and was involved in coaching. I bought the book because I am interested in what makes great athletes i.e.Tom Brady tick. The book did not disappoint.
Brady seems to be off the charts in everything he does. The water he uses to hydrate, the food he uses for fuel, the special pajamas he sleeps in, and of coarse, his pliability workouts. While he pushes TB12 products in the book, he does not say you need to follow his workout or use his products or eat exactly what he eats. He does lay out, in simple language and in an easy to follow pdf, basics that you can follow using equipment and foam rollers available at most gyms or at a low cost. The same basics he has used over the years to accomplish what he has achieved as one of the greatest quarterbacks in the NFL.
I decided to put theory to the test and follow the TB12 method for a month, to see what would happen. I was not as strict as Brady in what I did. For example I did not come close to his discipline in what I ate, My pliability routine was foam rollers vs. deep massage, I substituted a run and a personal workout for his bands, did not spend the 4 hours a day in the gym that he spends in the off season and no special pajamas. Result 4 weeks later: eliminated nagging back, shoulder and knee pain I was having, dropped 8 pounds, feel healthier and more alert. My average 5k run training speed (I'm still pretty slow) increased by 20%. I intend to reread several chapters in the book and add some of the things Brady recommended that I didn't implement over the test month.
A lot of Brady's regimen is not new. What he does do in this book is put everything together in an easy to read manual. I gave it a 5 star rating and have to say thanks to Brady for publishing this book, ghost written or not. Books like this, from athletes who have walked the walk, are hard to find, It definitely has the potential to be a life/training changer.
