For the last decade, Silicon Valley entrepreneur Dave Asprey has worked with world-renowned doctors and scientists to uncover the latest, most innovative methods for making humans perform better - a process known as "biohacking". In his first book, The Bulletproof Diet, he shared his biohacking tips for taking control of your own biology. Now, in Head Strong, Asprey shows listeners how to biohack their way to sharper, smarter, faster, more resilient brains.
Imagine feeling like your mind is operating at its clearest and sharpest and being able - possibly for the first time in your life - to do more in less time. What if it suddenly became easier to do the very hardest things you do? Or if you could feel 100 percent confident about your intellect and never again fear being the person in the room who just isn't smart enough or can't remember something important?
In Head Strong, Asprey shows us that all of this is possible - and more. Using his simple lifestyle modifications (or "hacks") to take advantage of how the structure of your brain works, you will learn how to take your mental performance to the next level. Combining the latest findings in neuroscience and neurobiology with a hacker-inspired "get it done now" perspective, Asprey offers a program structured around key areas of brain performance that will help you:
Power the brain with exactly what it needs to perform at its best all day long
Eliminate the sources of "kryptonite", both nutritional and environmental, that make the brain slower
Supercharge the cellular powerhouses of your brain, the mitochondria, to eliminate cravings and turn up mental focus
Reverse inflammation to perform better right now, then stay sharp and energized well into your golden years
Promote neuron growth to enhance processing speed and reinforce new learning - hotwiring your brain for success
Asprey's easy to follow two-week program offers a detailed plan to supercharge brain performance, including which foods to eat and which ones to avoid, how to incorporate the right kinds of physical activity into your day, a detox protocol for your home and body, meditation and breathing for performance, recommended brain-boosting supplements, and how to adjust the lighting in your home and workspace to give your brain the quality light it thrives on.
A better brain - and a happier, easier, more productive life - is within reach. You just need to get Head Strong.

Total snake oil
This book is bordering on the absurd. Like most people I'm sure, I read it thinking it might contain some real insight, but what it actually is a series of the bleeding obvious all leading to the sale of the authors own branded products, at least one of which has been revealed to be a total scam.
In the spirit of hacking, I'll read the book for you and save 22 hours of your life.
Eat lots of vegetables and organic meat and butter.
Avoid toxins - like trans fats.
Drink the author's ridiculously priced coffee and snake oil liquid.
That's it, honestly.
If you didn't know any of the above already, there's little hope left. Check out the authors ridiculous claims for his own brand of toxin free coffee and the proven mumbo jumbo he spouts about it on the internet - Joe rogan for example, and then see if you can take much of the rest of this seriously.

Put you to sleep!
The narrator is the worst I've ever heard. The pace and tone would put you to sleep. In short its a marketing platform to buy the guy's products. The book tries to promote a healthy lifestyle but the constant message is Bulletproof products are the only ones you need, everything else will make you sick or won't help. Happy to return the book.

very extensive but impractical
I thought the scientific facts in this book were very interesting the only thing is many of the brain hacks asprey suggest are either expensive or impractical but none the less well thought out and backed up. he does try and sell a lot of his own products but also suggest alternatives. at the very least this book has given me the determination to learn more about my brain.

BEST BOOK I'VE READ FOR MAXIMIZING PERFORMANCE
Where does Head Strong rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
I loved this book! Totally loved this book! I didn't even know who Dave Asprey was until a friend of mine (who knew I had been exposed to mold and was recovering) told me about the Bulletproof Diet and that led me to Head Strong. I have listened to a LOT of books on nutrition and diet (e.g., Eat Fat, Get Thin; The Whole Foods Diet; The Immune System Recovery Plan; Super Genes; Hashimoto's Protocol; The Hormone Secret; The Prime; Why Can't I Get Better; Anti-Inflammation Zone; The Gene Therapy Plan; Brain Maker; Missing Microbes; The Hormone Reset Diet; Grain Brain; Why We Get Fat; The Blood Sugar Solution; Eating On The Wild Side; Eat To Live; Wheat Belly; Healthy At Home; The Disease Delusion). And, honestly, Head Strong was the best from ALL OF THESE! He takes all of the information in these other books and wraps it together in a manner that I can operationalize, today, tomorrow, next month and next year. It's my new favorite book of all time. I have purchased it for numerous friends and colleagues since I know everyone can find one thing that helps heal their mitochondria and give them more energy. Thanks to Dave, I'm losing weight, increasing my energy, and totally love the collagen bars in place of protein bars that are made out of toxic ingredients! Keep up the great work and thanks for helping to make my life better!
