About Head Strong
From the creator of Bulletproof Coffee and author of the bestselling 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 readers how to biohack their way to a sharper, smarter, faster, more resilient brain.
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 it suddenly became easier to do the very hardest things you do? Or if you could feel 100% 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.
What Can You Expect From Head Strong?
What would it feel like to have maximum energy to fuel your brain, your cells, and your every desire? To be more patient with the people you love, to make the best possible decisions, and to enjoy every minute of it? The Head Strong program is based on tens of thousands of hours of research, the latest scientific studies, and years of in-depth interviews with experts around the world to help you upgrade your brain in just two weeks – and the results keep building from there.
When that happens, you will not only have a high-functioning brain – at the same time, you will also become a better, higher-performing version of yourself, and practically everything you do will require less effort. That includes not only excelling at work and hobbies, but also making the best possible decisions, being more patient with the people you care about – and most importantly enjoying all these experiences more than ever. If you’re already 100% happy with your current cognitive performance, or you’re set in your current daily routine and you’re not willing to make some tweaks just get get more out of your brain (and more out of your life)… then Headstrong is probably not for you.
On the other hand, if you’re looking for something more – more of an edge than you have right now, more energy to “bring it” in everything you do, and a higher-performing brain than nature ever intended… then the few hours you invest in reading (or even just skimming) Head Strong will probably be some of the most rewarding time you spend this year.
