Publisher's 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.

Very Interesting real life guide to biohacking.

One of the most interesting books I have read in a long time.

A lot of the approaches I am sceptical about and wont be applying myself. However, I found his true honest account of what he has done, absolutely fascinating.

In my opinion, this book can glide over some of the risks and likelyhoods of success. Additionally, because of Dave's prominate role in the biohacking world, it has strong conflicts of interest.

Understanding that I would use it more as an informative overview of what is out there rather than a bible of actions. However, taken under that lense, I thought it was brilliant.

Brilliantly insightful

This book is one of the greatest eye openers that I have come across to date. So much quality information in here from a guy who has dedicated his life to anti-aging and biohacking. It is amazing how much we actually don't know or understand about our own bodies so thank you Dave for some great life hacks.

Can’t get enough

This audiobook is a must for anyone wanting to age with a bang. The nuggets contained within are invaluable.
The thing with Dave is that he’s all about Return on Investment and he never fails to deliver. This book is no exception. For the small amount paid for this audiobook, I can guarantee will save me time and money not spent in hospital bills and time in Doctors surgeries later in life.
Dave’s narration is clear and easy to understand.
This book is a no brainer.

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??????

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.

Packed full of useful information

I found this book to be really interesting and packed full of useful information. However, it is more like a primer and inspiration to look at the various interventions more closely as there are so many of them, any many of them still at early stages in terms of evidence of effectiveness and safety.

Great information

Loved the story and information and also the fact that it was read by the author. However the book sounds like it was pieced together by little bits of audio recorded at different times and is a little annoying, but if you can get past that it's great

Informative

This is the first book I have listened to by Dave and I wasn't disappointed. He speaks energetically and I remained engaged from beginning to end.

You will need to be well off financially to undertake most, if not all, the advanced treatments out there in order to truly live to 180!! That said, there is heaps of information in the book for 'everyday people' - some of which I already do and others which I have now started to implement and would never have known had it not been for this book.

In my opinion, it's definitely worth a listen - it's a treasure trove of information :)
