Summary

Read by the author.

From the creator of Bulletproof coffee and the best-selling author of Head Strong and The Bulletproof Diet comes a plan to bypass plateaus and ‘up’ your game at every age.

Dave Asprey suffered countless symptoms of ageing as a young man, which sparked a lifelong burning desire to grow younger with each birthday. For more than 20 years, he has been on a quest to find innovative, science-backed methods to upgrade human biology and redefine the limits of the mind, body, and spirit. The results speak for themselves. Now in his 40s, Dave is smarter, happier, and more fit and successful than ever before.

In Super Human, he shows how this is level of health and performance possible for all of us. While we assume we will peak in middle age and then decline, Asprey’s research reveals there is another way. It is possible to make changes on the sub-cellular level to dramatically extend life span. And the tools to live longer also give you more energy and brainpower right now.

The answers lie in Dave’s Seven Pillars of Ageing that contribute to degeneration and disease while diminishing your performance in the moment. Using simple interventions – like diet, sleep, light, exercise, and little-known but powerful hacks from ozone therapy to proper jaw alignment, you can decelerate cellular ageing and supercharge your body’s ability to heal and rejuvenate.

A self-proclaimed human guinea pig, Asprey arms listeners with practical advice to maximise their lives at every age with his signature mix of science-geek wonder, candour, and enthusiasm. Getting older no longer has to mean decline. Now it’s an opportunity to become Super Human.

Overall not bad.

Very inspiring until you realise some of the info and advice allegedly backed by research and science doesn't really agree with the medical study... Or is circumstantial at best. You also can't shake of the feeling that you're being advised by professional salesman rather than devoted researcher or aspiring scientist. Once you hear a fact or two that is not scientifically true suddenly the whole book loses its credibility. And it's a shame, because Superhuman is a really good read/listen. Nonetheless have a go and make up your own mind.

Not much that's new

If you've read any of Dave Aspreys previous books, then you've heard 95% of this before - it's a rehash of his prior work. I had high hopes for an innovative new book, what I got felt like a "best of" compilation.

More of the same but still great

I have read Dave’s other books and really enjoyed them but this book was like a summary of all others. I didn’t get anything new from it.

Awful

I'm amazed this book gets published when the author suggests using pharmaceuticals that have not got approval for safe use. He also confesses as to 'probably' having the most stem cell injections ever. On top of this the narration is very fast and not an easy listen. Keep clear.

more anecdotal than science-based

More anecdotal than science-based! I was expecting more science results than "I tried...". some topics doesn't have solid evidence

Waste of 8+ hours

Whilst there are a few interesting facts, 80% of the book is a mishmash of what drugs, potions and gadgets the author uses to live to 180 (the number gets repeated about every 5 mins). The usual theme is “I’ve tried x and felt amazing so I’ve been eating/ injecting/ inhaling it ever since, including pumping ozone up his ass, my personal favourite. The most beneficial anti ageing techniques like exercise and social interactions barely get a mention and lots of his arguments are very one sided, e.g. the “vegan trap”.

Always an impressive content and well structured narrative

The way Dave writes and speaks is so authentic, open and humble. This knowledge is gold, I’m so grateful you do this research and share it with the world. I’ve had success in trying some of your hacks and in time I will try many of the suggestions you recommend.

Getting better

This book was much less a beginning-to-end advert for Asprey's products than his previous books, which is great. I always find lay explanations of science in an attempt to 'prove' the author's point frustrating and this was no less than usual. We have all been given scientific explanations that are total fictions and if I was knowledgeable enough to judge which of these are correct, I wouldn't need them. What I did like about this book the list of potential life-improving hacks, the author's own use of them and what effect he felt he had received from them. Having said that, this book could have benefited from a PDF listing all the techniques or at the least an index for the chapters. I do recommend this book for people interested in improving their health but I think you would get more benefit from the paper version. I also think that the tone his voice was awful. Could he really not afford a professional voice actor??????
