Excerpt from Tim Ferriss' blog:
"The concept is simple: I have one week to attempt to learn what is usually learned over 5-20 years. I either crash and burn ó or survive by the skin of my teeth ó in a final test (trial by fire) each time.
If itís made into a series, which depends entirely on viewership numbers on Thursday night, Iíll deconstruct a new complex skill each week. It will show you exactly how I approach learning, and no fake TV drama will be required to make the stakes real.
This episode was shot in HD in Tokyo and the mountains of Nikko, where I rolled the dice on Japanese horseback archery, or yabusame: full gallop, no hands, no safety gear, with wooden poles lining the track on either side of the horse. Please donít do this at home. I had access to the best in the world, and youíll get to see some never-before-seen footage of a rare and brutal samurai sport few non-Japanese have ever attempted."
