I was originally going to write about this together with The Know-It-All, but found myself talking about The Know-It-All so much that I thought it would be better as a single book post.
Drop Dead Healthy follows A. J. Jacobs as he sets about trying a lot of different health crazes and experiments in order to find the healthiest way to live.
The thing about this book is that much as I enjoyed it, I don’t really have anything to say about it! The only thing that I took away from it really that I’m actually implementing is washing my hands more thoroughly, and spending time dreaming of a workplace that would allow me to have a treadmill desk (I HATE sitting down all day. I just end up feeling really uncomfortable after a few hours, and I could walk for hours without feeling uncomfortable).
Yup. I don’t have anything to say really apart from that. It was enjoyable, and I found myself tearing up at it at times (one of the side stories is about his Granddad’s deteriorating health, and as my Granddad died last year I found myself way more affected than this than I normally would have done). So it’s not that I didn’t enjoy it! Not at all!
If you’ve read any of his other things and enjoyed them, I’m sure you’d like this. I actually got The Know-It-All within about 10 minutes of finishing this (damn you kindle! Why must you make it so easy for me to buy stuff?), so that goes to show how much I liked it.
But yeah. Nothing else to say. So I won’t.
