Summary

The best-selling author of Head Strong and The Bulletproof Diet answers the question 'how do I kick more ass?' - providing proven techniques for becoming happier, healthier and smarter, culled from the wisdom and insight of world-class thought leaders and mavericks of science and business.

When Dave Asprey started his Bulletproof Radio podcast more than five years ago, he sought out thought leaders and influencers in an array of disciplines, from biochemists to business titans to mediation masters. These folks were some of the top performing humans in the world, people who had changed their areas of study or even pioneered entirely new fields. Dave wanted to know: What did they have in common? What mattered most to them? What makes them so successful at what they do - and what makes them happiest? And so, at the end of each interview, Dave began asking the same question: 'What are your top three recommendations for people who want to kick more ass?'

Combing through the recordings, looking for patterns and common threads, he found that the wisdom gleaned from these highly successful people can be distilled into three main categories: body, mind, and spirit. Game Changers is the culmination of Dave’s years-long statistical analysis of these conversations, offering 36 science-backed, high-performance 'laws' that are a virtual playbook for how to become not only more successful but also happier and healthier.

Each chapter of Game Changers is structured around one of these laws. Dave combines anecdotes from game changers like Daniel Amen, David Perlmutter, Arianna Huffington, Dan Harris and Tim Ferris with his own research and practical advice that listeners can put into action immediately. From practising gratitude and mindfulness to prioritising social connections and sex, taming fear and anxiety to optimising nutrition and movement, Dave brings together the wisdom of today’s game changers to help everyone optimise their lives.

Tools of titans perfected!

If I could take one book into a post apocalypse world, this would be a very good choice. Dave, I'm far away in London but would love to thank you one day in person for this and the hundreds of podcasts I've lapped up. Perhaps at Burning man this year or next.

Practical and cutting-edge

The advice given is practical, useful and manageable. The fact that this book represents analysis from hundreds of hours of interviews of successful and happy people means that the most pertinent advice is clear and is not just the opinion of Dave Asprey; much as he is incredibly knowledgeable!

The narration is well-delivered, it’s easy to forget that the narrator is not the original author.

I had implemented a few of these techniques and strategies into my life over the past few years. For everything I’m already doing, I now have a deeper understanding and I have 5-10 extra techniques which I am putting in to action. That’s excellent value for one book.

One important point to make is that Asprey is not at all prescriptive with his advice. It all comes with a “This is what the Game Changers of the world are doing, but it’s up to you.” This low-pressure delivery made me more inclined to explore the strategies mentioned, as opposed to feeling overwhelmed with all the things I “should” be doing.

Great book.

The sort of brillinat content l expect from Dave

Content was brilliant, if you listen to his podcasts you will have heard quite a bit of it before, but its presented well and is very inspiring. The only downside is the narration, Dave narrates small segments and does so with energy and vibe, but the rest is monotone and robotic, this is a real shame and distracts from the quality of the material. A dull narrator going through the motions.

Great listen

I really enjoyed listening to the book, there is plenty of food for thought and its enabled me to get back on track and put back into practice stuff both new and old. I will definitely be referring back to some of the rules and gratitude is definitely the best way to finish the book. kudos Dave

Amazing

Full of tips and knowledge from a variety of inspiring people. I really appreciated the approach taken by the author who acknowledge throughout the book that there is no ‘one size fits all’ approach to becoming a game changer, instead he has compiled statistically significant factors taken from data he has accumulated from interviews that can help a person live their best and most fulfilled life.

The book is content rich - I have pages and pages of notes of things I would like to try implementing in my own life. I found both the author and the professional narrator to be engaging.

good listen...

One star on story, only because it doesn't tell a story. A lot of interesting info that will be familiar to anyone that has been into Bio-Hacking or followed BP radio for any time. The tips are interesting, so you will definitely want to download the PDF that comes with the audio book .

Incredibly easy and right on point in every page.

I read his bulletproof diet before this one, and this book is another continuation of self development masterpiece that anyone should listen or read. narrator's voice was very soothing at the same time memorable so that I felt as if I am meditating while listening. I would continue to read his headstrong or superhuman after this. Dave Asprey is the guy who writes and act upon his rules and active in social media presence which helps me to feel what it is like being game changers or high performansers.

For square pegs that don't fit in a round holes

I thought it was going to be similar to his other books, but I was surprised that it had a lot of new Game Changing ideas.
I really liked it.
I would highly recommend it for anyone wanting to try out of the box concepts to getting ahead in life.
It's not for closed minded people.
