Drop Dead Healthy by A.J. Jacobs

In his quest to create "bodily perfection," Jacobs spends two years trying seemingly every exercise, food, supplement, diet plan... and even describes sphincter toning. (Don't ask.)

You'll learn a lot about what doesn't work, and just as importantly you'll laugh a lot—which, of course, is good for your health. So you'll already be off to a good start.
