Okay. 100 isn't half from 150.
Then he says that almost all ultra endurance athletes uses ...more

I listened to it on audio, and have since bought the hardcover so that I can go through and take notes and have the book for reference.
I don't have access to all his products, but thats fine - its a life hack, so you can tweak accordingly and gradually improve on it.

Granted, a lot of the information has been already said. And the whole book is a rehash of all the bulletproof radio podcasts.
The first thing that struck me was that the book begins with the power of no.
I know and you know about that. Who doesn't?
Well, the question that I had was "Why the book starts with that?"

There are some very good nuggets in the books and just for finding them the book is worth picking ...more

The book 'Game Changers' is filled with valuable advice for anybody on how to improve happiness, health, and the joy of life and job. The author, Dave Asprey, interviewed countless top player from any professional field and the result, or the secrets to their success, is what this book is about.
Well written, inspiring, a book to come back to again and again.
I like that Dave shares what TOP performers do habitually and some of those are totally new to me. I believe I will revisit this book regularly to improve my own hack.
