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".

Is there anything you would change about this book?

Dave focusing on how successful he's been (how much he's "kicked ass") and how much money he's made in his lifetime makes me suspicious about his motivations for writing his books, especially considering how many products he sells. He comes across as a very savvy business man, but I ultimately felt like much of the book was a sales pitch for his products.

You've always heard that "age is just a number" - now we have the science to prove it. Those wrinkles under your eyes are not simply an inevitable part of the aging process. Actually, those unpleasant surprises in the mirror are a result of the decline in your cellular and hormonal functions. Science shows us that your hormones quickly decline after age 30, leading to a variety of changes in your body, including hair loss, saggy skin, and unwanted facial hair.

This book might be good on Kindle or hard copy, but it’s basically a laundry list of anti-aging remedies. I listen to audiobooks while driving - listening to endless pages of things to buy and use was a horrible waste of my time. I wish I hadn’t wasted my monthly credit on it.
