Timothy Ferriss has a history of doing the least amount possible for the biggest possible outcomes.
He’s the best-selling author of three books that attack an underlying principle he’s termed ‘Minimum Effective Dose’ (MED – A term he’s slightly altered and borrowed from the pharmaceutical industry), or the minimum you can do in order to get the result you’re looking for.
The ultimate learning hacker, his first book was a productivity hack book (The 4-Hour Workweek), followed by an even more popular fitness and health body hack book (The 4-Hour Body).
*That last book borrows heavily from a lot of the fitness and health professionals I mention on my resource page.
