    City Arts & Lectures Tim Ferriss The program's guest is Tim Ferriss, start-up angel investor, blogger and entrepreneur. He is best-known for his first book "The 4-Hour Workweek," a how-to-guide about outsourcing work and other aspects of life. Ferriss followed-up on the phenomenal international success of that debut with "The 4-Hour Body." That book combines the advice of athletes and doctors with personal experimentation to outline a lifestyle plan that aims to elevate metabolism and overall strength -- and even train the body to function well on two hours sleep per day. Ferriss is a guest lecturer at Princeton University, where he has spoken on high-tech entrepreneurship since 2003. His newest book, "The 4-Hour Chef," includes recipes based on his nutritional and time-saving philosophy. Ferriss appeared in conversation with Phil Bronstein on December 6, 2012.

The NRA has blocked all such efforts in the past. New York Times reporter Sheryl Gay Stolberg discusses why the ATF's record-keeping on gun sales is actually incredibly antiquated.
