Expensive Fixes

The material and the science is very good, however one hour in and he's recommended you buy a £700 set of earbuds that shine light into your ears and you eat tubs of yogurt costing $30 each. I'm not sure what world he's living in, but it's not the one the rest of us do.

Very bland and long winding on basic concepts

I read the sample and couldn’t wait to read the book, so i downloaded the audible. After the 1st 3 minuted i realised this book was going nowhere very quickly. Aubrey drags on about the most MUNDANE ideas and doesn’t get straight to the point. It seems like he had writers block for a while and decided to talk about gibberish to fulfil his publishers word count. The idea of the book seems ingenious, yet the content lacks any originality. It was a painful listen. He needs to go back to the drawing board. Gosh i want my money back 😫

Unoriginal, passive-aggressive pastiche

Before I downloaded this, I read the reviews - many of the most recent saying they gave up on it - it was that bad. I'm astonished it has the ratings it has. Ironically, Marcus waits until one of the last chapters to advise you if you start reading something and don't like it, don't read on. He should have said this in the introduction. Marcus is trying (and failing) to be the new Antony Robbins -even finishes his dreadful narrative with a Robbins-esque soliloquy. Old science, poorly or selectively interpreted (the justification for taking cannabis and smoking cigars is a classic example), old ideas re-booted. The text interchanges from gratuitous swearing, urging you to give folks "the finger" then talking "peace and love" gibberish or juvenile anecdotes interspersed with regurgitating science read rote. Marcus can't take even a glass of water - it has to be "crushed" (if I hear anyone say "crush it" again, I'll scream. I'd recommend Tim Ferris's 4 hour body instead - delivered with an honesty and modesty completely absent from this text. I listened to the end. Tortuous. I never want to hear his voice or inane monologue ever again.

Leaves you with ZERO excuses

Aubrey Marcus backed with science fueled tactics leaves you with non excuses to fall back on. A genuinely good man who is looking to up your game.

Probably the best gift you can give yourself today

I am truly grateful this book entered my world because aside from all the life changing advice in it. It gave me something way more valuable: a new and stronger belief in myself, a better feeling about the future and a rock solid love for the present. this book should be taken seriously... and with that said i dare you. no, i double dare you ;) to give it a listen/read and not see your life elevate with more joy, more ambition, more love and a heck of big bag of awesome new tricks that actually work wonders and is worth it's grain of tasty (himalayan sea) salt. im just being honest here guys... give it a go. Aubrey is the real deal

great, applicable nuggets in a wholistic approach

pretty much loved it. Aubrey takes you on a journey, life- and bio-hacks are woven into a story, founded in his mission / life's purpose.
I am in favour of micro-improvements to shift the macro.
Everyone can try to own one day.
I will re-listen to it to get more gems out of it.
thanks Aubrey
