I’m a moderate Tim Ferris fan. I liked his book, The Four-Hour Work Week and I enjoy his blog. But, I am a bit of a skeptic that true, repeatable, sustainable results can be obtained from his miracle techniques for learning things rapidly. Learn a language in an hour?
It does make for great blogging, though, and he’s got a real knack for making buzz.
So his new show Trial by Fire looks to be fascinating, and I won’t miss it. 11pm ET/PT on The History Channel.
Part of me is warming up to watch a dramatic failure, but I mostly would like to see him succeed.
