Where does Head Strong rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
I loved this book! Totally loved this book! I didn't even know who Dave Asprey was until a friend of mine (who knew I had been exposed to mold and was recovering) told me about the Bulletproof Diet and that led me to Head Strong. I have listened to a LOT of books on nutrition and diet (e.g., Eat Fat, Get Thin; The Whole Foods Diet; The Immune System Recovery Plan; Super Genes; Hashimoto's Protocol; The Hormone Secret; The Prime; Why Can't I Get Better; Anti-Inflammation Zone; The Gene Therapy Plan; Brain Maker; Missing Microbes; The Hormone Reset Diet; Grain Brain; Why We Get Fat; The Blood Sugar Solution; Eating On The Wild Side; Eat To Live; Wheat Belly; Healthy At Home; The Disease Delusion). And, honestly, Head Strong was the best from ALL OF THESE! He takes all of the information in these other books and wraps it together in a manner that I can operationalize, today, tomorrow, next month and next year. It's my new favorite book of all time. I have purchased it for numerous friends and colleagues since I know everyone can find one thing that helps heal their mitochondria and give them more energy. Thanks to Dave, I'm losing weight, increasing my energy, and totally love the collagen bars in place of protein bars that are made out of toxic ingredients! Keep up the great work and thanks for helping to make my life better!

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.

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.
Avoid toxins - like trans fats.
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.

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.

according to this I'm killing my cells. Unrealistic and promoting his products, what a surprise.

What disappointed you about Head Strong?
This book had a few good points but the author was trying to sell his products for the entire story. Every time he made a point about health, loosing weight, using your brain to its full potential etc, the end product was, the only way you can do it is to use his products.
Even if I wanted to follow the authors diet, there is no way I could. I earn over the Australian average wage and I definitely could not afford it.
This book is based on a lot of theories and not a whole lot of facts. I wish I could of put that 10-12 hours into something els
Has Head Strong put you off other books in this genre?
No, I will try other books but it has definitely damaged my enthusiasm
Who might you have cast as narrator instead of Rob Shapiro and Dave Asprey ?
Narrators were ok
If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Head Strong?
All of it
Any additional comments?
