Publisher's 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.

Best parenting book ever!

This book teaches you how to do things that have immediate results. I started listening to it and realized this is what my kids need to know, what I needed to know when I was a kid (minus the sex stuff of course which I found extremely enlightening).
Weasel words are now pointed out to each family member if they use them. I love how Dave highlights the greats in his life and shares there knowledge. It all starts from the start there is no boring start waiting to get into it. I will re listen to this and take notes. it is like his podcasts condensed into one book. Aaaaamazing!!!!! Value value value!!!! Thank you so much Dave, out of everyone I follow and listen to you are the most impactful for me and my family and anyone else who will listen to me that want better health and mental clarity.

If you only buy one book this year. This is it

Phenomenal iteration of a merge of over 500 podcasts with the best in the business, lifestyle, health and fitness, wellness and bio hacking. I am a fan of Dave Asprey, so slightly biased, but I’ve now gifted this book to my closest friends and family as soon as I finished the book.

An amazing read. An Encyclopaedia for life.

Regards
Christopher Chappell.

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.

Love the message

Think DA is great. Love his drive and most of his message. Grateful he is sharing his knowledge with us all. I’m a vegetarian that doesn’t drink coffee so as I have you may want to pick and choose the advice that best works for you. Thanks Dave for sharing with us all. Keep up the amazing work.

Awesome book, inspiring, be the best me I can be.

This book has further opened my eyes to biohacking. It has helped me realise why it is so important to make an effort to hack yourself, mentally, physically and spiritually, so you can reach your full potential in life.

Disappointed filled with pseudo science and waffle

I was looking forward to this book. But it is more the meandering thoughts of the author than that of the mavericks, innovators etc.
There's a LOT of pseudo science to trawl through to get a few nuggets of information (if I'm being kind).
First time I've been disappointed in an audio book.

So many lessons!

I am definitely not new to Bulletproof, or Dave Asprey, but have never read any of his books. This was a great listen, I loved hearing the little nuggets of wisdom from all his interviews. There were great lessons, plenty of laughs and lots of personal growth. Would absolutely recommend!

Meta Learning

Take the knowledge of the best experts in business sports health and then cross reference all their top ideas to get a meta work of non fiction to help you achieve any and all massive life goals.

Give us more Dave!!! I can't get enough.

Loved it. I've already listened to it 3 times. I highly recommend listening to this book. It's also a book that you can crank up the speed and still be able to take it all in. I can't wait for the next book he come up with.
