Tim Ferriss’ ‘Trial by Fire’ TV Show Pilot on The History Channel

Our friend Tim Ferriss, who wrote the best-selling book “The 4-Hour Workweek”, has created a pilot for “Trial by Fire”, a new TV show on The History Channel. The concept behind the show is that he has one week to learn something that normally takes 5-20 years to master. The show airs tomorrow night, Thursday, December 4th at 11pm EST/8pm PST.

Tim Ferriss, best-selling author and all around expert on everything from mixed martial arts to ballroom dancing and linguistics, will use the knowledge he can glean from experts to rapidly master a skill in one week that most people couldn’t learn in a lifetime: the ancient Japanese art of Yabusame… Japanese horseback archery.

Tim will be doing a live Q&A on his blog during the broadcast.
