Description

Bestselling author Tim Ferriss ("The World's Best Human Guinea Pig." - Newsweek) pushes himself to the breaking point, attempting to learn notoriously punishing skills—surfing, professional poker, Brazilian jiu-jitsu, parkour, languages, etc.—in just one week each. Filmed and edited by the team behind Anthony Bourdain (Zero Point Zero).

In every episode of The Tim Ferriss Experiment, Ferriss partners with the world's best and most unorthodox teachers (e.g. Laird Hamilton, Marcelo Garcia, Stewart Copeland), who train him for a final gauntlet. Shocking breakthroughs, injuries, epiphanies, and disasters ensue. In cases where he succeeds, Tim shows you how to replicate his results. The mantra of the show is "you don't need to be superhuman to get superhuman results…you just need a better toolkit."
