It's one persons view on how to live well

I've read many self help/improvement books over the years. I'm always cautious when reading a book written by supplement pushers because the science they cite is always in line with the products they sell. I've learned about Onnit, "Aubrey's" current company from the Joe Rogan podcast. I used Aubrey in quotes because his real name is Chris in which he claims he changed after his experience with Ayahuasca, a hallucinogen used in a religious ritual. Personally, I think he changed it to distance himself from a former business model, adult toys, specifically the "fleshlight" that he was part of with his step father. Ya, seriously. Regardless, the book does have some helpful information and common sense knowledge like getting plenty of rest and playfulness with your partner. The book seems to be written for his peer group or those aspiring to be there. I'm referring to hipsters who buy $30 yogurts, like Aubrey does, just to try it on a whim. It's definitely worth a listen too, just be ready for a lot of "Who has time for this s#$t?" while your driving moments.

A collection of tidbits muled over...

I think the editors should have consulted the Author not to publish, and instead - change a subject completely. I would love to read a story of ONNIT creation, struggle and current development instead. This material is often an insult to one's intelligence. I read all poor reviews before purchasing the book, but as a consumer of ONNIT I wanted to hear the story for myself. Yes, I did not finish. The material is shallow, a tidbits of general knowledge if you even try to stay fit and healthy. So bad, it is never good.

This book is really about the Aubrey Method...

This book is for those who want to know how Aubrey does this, not how others should do it. There are general items but most is too specific.

Perfect mix of science and advice.

What did you love best about Own the Day, Own Your Life?

This is probably the best book I've read for quick actionable advice on how to improve your life and feel better. The best thing about the book so far(I'm halfway through) is that it's a great mix of science with advice. You're given things to change immediately with a quick argument on why you should change these things. Most books I've read so far lack one or the other. It's either a broad do these few things with a ton of scientific research, or a huge list of things to do with not enough research that leaves you questioning the advice. This book has a perfect dose of actionable advice and scientific background supporting the ideas behind the advice.

As a bonus Aubrey breaks it down to a day which makes the advice even more relatable and simple - great book!

if you're a regular listener of JRE...

...there's nothing new here. Accept maybe a few horrible jokes. Love Aubrey and look up to him but this books isn't for you if you already follow him pretty well.

Don’t buy the hype. Nothing new here.

No real new information here. He’s talking about being “unconventional” “ground breaking” etc., while talking about kettlebells, benefits of naps, and drinking water when you wake up.
...it’s 2018...we know.
So I wonder who this book is for? I think maybe really young (because of his bro metaphors and forced cuss words) people who haven’t ever looked into any personal growth books, the basics of nutrition, or have never stepped in a gym. I’m a 31 year old decently healthy guy, and it seemed like he just took common knowledge from the last 10 years and presented them all as something revolutionary.

Also, a lot of what he recommends and talks about he also sells in some way, shape or form in his brand store. As well, he advocates eating processed meat, bacon, butter...and just some overall 2012 era nutrition ideas. Eh *refund*

Simplistic and self-indulgent

I wanted to like this book. I really did. I've been following the plethora of information on optimizing diet, sleep, exercise, etc. for the last decade and this looked like an innovative way to provide a prescription for actually integrating these theories into real life.

I tried. I sat through Marcus extolling Tony Robbins and Bode Miller as paradigms of good living. I sat through him spending an entire chapter advising us to take a cold shower every morning just to the point of passing out. I sat through a completely gratuitous description of how Marcus and his wife engage in naked tickle fights every morning. Really. I sat through him, after pages of talking about all kinds of complex physiological functions, say, "Obviously, I am not qualified at all to talk about the menstrual cycle" (because he's male?). I sat through him list all the supplements he takes that we should also take and buy from his company. But when I got to his section proclaiming all news media bad ... painting everything from NPR and the New York Times to partisan talk radio with the same broad bush and telling me that I'll get more from listening to podcasts -- apparently ANY podcast -- than from going to college, and again promoting his friends' and his podcasts, that was it.

Returned for a refund.

Slow and very basic. Boring and unhelpful.

I would take the other positives reviews with a grain of salt. I found this book to be very useless. Basic and obvious advice. Almost, go figure type stuff. Learn from my mistske, don't waste your time or money.

How to find the PDF

Okay, this book is awesome but it was my first one with a PDF file and its not exactly intuitive on how to find it if you're using just the app. Check it out, this is from help and support page of audible and it works. Good luck optimizers!

Want to see the PDF on your mobile device? Here are the steps:

Go to www.mobile.audible.com.Scroll down to the bottom of the page and tap on Full Site.Tap Library then My Books.Tap PDF next to the audiobook!
