Publisher's Summary

From the creator of Bulletproof Coffee and author of the best-selling The Bulletproof Diet comes a revolutionary plan to upgrade your brainpower - in two weeks or less.

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? How would you treat people if the mood swings, short temper, and food cravings that disrupt your day could simply disappear?

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.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

    "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.

    "Top Notch Guide To Jumpstart Your Evolution"

    I would recommend this book to anyone that wants to improve their overall performance in life.

    More specifically people that are already experiencing health issues such as chronic fatigue, unexplained aches and pains, brain fog, poor quality sleep, etc.

    Overall this book is very well written with a ton of research put into it.

    My favorite things about this book:

    1. Actionable steps that are easy to implement.
    2. Lists of supplements and meals to implement.
    3. Playful: not to heavy on the research and not too serious to where it's offputting.
    4.Cutting edge info. you probably haven't heard anywhere else. Unless you have been following the Bulletproof podcast or other health and wellness teachings.
    5. Written by Dave Asprey: This man is very good at "bringing it all together." Thereby allowing you to understand the vast importance of why you should even be learning this stuff in the first place.

    "Dave did not disappoint!"

    I have been a customer of
    Dave Asprey for a while now and am a devotee to bp coffee for three years (gosh, has it been that long ?) I love it, believe in it and feel great ! I love all the pioneering work he does and love the interviews and cutting edge info !
    Since years I believe in the motto : be the change you want to see ! And since I am over 70 , I don't want to figure out all the possibilities on the slow boat , don't want to waste time ! This book is a wonderful 'leg-up' on my path ! ❤😘

    "Nothing like this exists, but my stuff"

    My BS detector turned up to 11 while reading.

    Many of the ideas are repeats of things I've heard in the past... but many ideas are new and unique ..

    Combine this with the multiple "buy my stuff" requests, and i almost had to turn the book off.

    Stay wary, friends.

    "Quick hacks for more energy"
    What made the experience of listening to Head Strong the most enjoyable?

    I decided to just skip to the parts where they recap the chapters and follow the 2 week plan. Some good hacks and my sleep is better.


    Have you listened to any of Dave Asprey and Rob Shapiro ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes, love Dave.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No

    "As good as the Bulletproof Diet"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, the book is full of great info for general health that is applicable to everyone


    What other book might you compare Head Strong to and why?

    The Bulletproof Diet (same author), but this book adds more detail to the mitochondrial health which is an emerging trend.

    Also, Minding my Mitochondria (by Terry Wahls) as the books are similar in topic, but this book takes a new approach and includes a more advanced and actionable plan.


    Have you listened to any of Dave Asprey and Rob Shapiro ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    The author (Dave) did an even better job of providing the important info without fluff that is actionable than in the Bulletproof Diet.

    Rob was great as always


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No it's not that type of book


    Any additional comments?

    The Bulletproof Diet changed my life, and I eagerly awaited the release of this book. Headstrong did not disappoint, and is a great stand-alone read or compliment to the Bulletproof Diet (or any other auto-immune / paleo / ketogenic themed diet book). I am most impressed at how refined this book is at delivering the most important information in a way that makes it very simple and actionable to improve mitochondrial, cognitive, and therefore overall health.

    GET THIS BOOK! .. It's that simple.

    "Fake research , pretty quacky"
    What would have made Head Strong better?

    Real research. The studies he cites are all very old and poorly done. Some only sample 2 people. Some of the studies don't even support the conclusions he pulls from them.


    Has Head Strong turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Yes. I know many of these are sales pitches and this is no different.


    Any additional comments?

    Overall it's "science" based on nothing more than anecdotes. The "research" is dubious at best, dangerous at worst. Conveniently his company sells what he claims are the best foods. Many people have even tested his coffee for mold toxins and his coffee doesn't fare better than many other brands. Associates with Mercola who the science world knows is a quack. Just a sales pitch that uses a lot of vagueness and buzzwords. He hasn't "hacked" anything but my wallet.

    "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.
    Sleep well.
    Avoid toxins - like trans fats.
    Exercise.
    Meditate.
    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.

    "Excellent launch point into Biohacking!"

    This book is an incredible resource for anyone interested in getting optimal performance from their body and brain.

    I see this as being a user's guide to your neurology - how to upgrade your brain.

    Thanks Dave for being the guinea-pig with all of this and showing the way forward for the rest of us.

    I've started applying some of the suggestions and feel a difference already. I feel so good!

    in the beginning I felt I am listing to bulletproof diet again but then I found few extra tips and materials that was good. Generally I think a book worth reading... Maybe not following it all but choosing what works for you.
    I applied on a lot of dave's advices and it worked for me like magic
