The Tim Ferriss Experiment
Open iTunes to preview or buy TV shows.
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."

All I hoped it would be and more
Tim kills it in this, as always. Breaking down the core principles of each topic, teaching and learning, then underlining it all with a fantastic story. This show is the pragmatic learner’s dream in 25 minutes. Already bought 4, about to buy the whole season. I want even more content, so get to watching, and get to buying!
If you like Tim you should love this!
This is really well done. I do wish we could have gotten longer episodes but almost every episode comes with some bonus material which makes it a tad better.
Can’t wait to see if there will be a season 2 and if so how they can improve upon it.
Tim at his best
This is great and useful entertainment. Tim at his very best.
