More About the Author



Dave Asprey is a Silicon Valley investor and entrepreneur, a professional biohacker, and the creator of Bulletproof Coffee made with butter. He is host of Bulletproof Radio, a nationally syndicated radio show and #1 ranked podcast with 10 million downloads. Dave serves as Chairman of the Silicon Valley Health Institute.

Dave spent 15 years and $300,000 to hack his own biology. He used techniques to upgrade his brain by more than 20 IQ points, lowered his biological age, and lost 100 lbs without using calories or exercise.

His work has been featured on The Tonight Show, Nightline, Forbes, CNN, ABC News and FOX News. His writing has been published by the New York Times and Fortune, and he's been featured in The Financial Times, Rolling Stone, Men's Health, Vogue, Fast Company, Marie Claire, Women's Health, and dozens more.

Dave's work is born out of a fifteen-year single-minded crusade to upgrade the human being using every available technology. It distills the knowledge of more than 120 world-class MDs, biochemists, Olympic nutritionists, meditation experts, and hundreds of thousands of dollars spent on personal self-experiments.

From 40 Years of Zen private brain EEG facilities hidden in a Canadian forest to remote monasteries in Tibet, from Silicon Valley to the Andes, high tech entrepreneur Dave Asprey used hacking techniques and tried everything himself, obsessively focused on discovering:

What are the simplest things you can do to be better at everything?

Knowing this leads to being bulletproof, the state of high performance where you take control of and improve your biochemistry, your body, and your mind so they work in unison, helping you execute at levels far beyond what you'd expect, without burning out, getting sick, or just acting like a stressed-out jerk. It used to take a lifetime to radically rewire the human body and mind this way. Technology has changed the rules.

I started listening to Dave's podcast over a year ago and have a lot to be thankful to him for. He introduced me to many great ideas and interesting people that I may not have come across otherwise. I've largely followed the Bulletproof Diet since then and have lost a lot of weight and feel incredible (especially since eating more vegetables and less bacon after losing the weight).

I have three reasons for writing a negative review: the book is poorly written, the products he sells can be purchased for much cheaper elsewhere (and may not be necessary) and he tells the same stories over and over to the point where you wonder if something is seriously wrong with him.

Just about everything in the book is already available on his blog (some of the recipes I haven't seen before and they looked good). Some of the pages are lifted directly from the blog like most of 'The Bulletproof Guide to Supplements' chapter. The bulk of the book is the 'Bulletproof Diet Roadmap' which mainly lists each type of food and gives a paragraph or two of why you should eat or avoid (the format does not make for an enjoyable read). There were numerous occasions where I thought more information or a reference would have been helpful.

If you listen to the podcast at all you will cringe as you read the book, not this story again. They are not even stories anymore they're 'Dave's Mythologies'. On the podcast, Dave can't help himself to bring up his stories once certain cues are mentioned. Sometimes you'll hear the same ones in back to back podcast episodes. Oftentimes the guest seems puzzled and are not sure what his story had to do with what they were talking about. Dr. Mark Hyman was particularly short with him.

Don't let the 4-star review sound overly critical. Buy this book and use it. There is a lot of incredible information in this.
I have followed Asprey's advice from his podcasts and other materials, and this book is 100% in line with that. I'm writing this review after having read the book to make certain there was nothing contradicting the "bulletproof diet" plan I was already on. Long story short, it's all here.

The Good:

Dave's diet plan does one thing incredibly well -- it highlights the critical need for GOOD FATS!!! Good fat like grass-fed butter, ghee, and coconut oil (as well as avocado) is absolutely necessary to good health of the mind and body.

The "don't eat" list is pretty standard fare but accurate.

Dave also breaks things down into very understandable terms and gives actionable advice. If you read copious amounts of cutting-edge health info, Dave's work is on-target and a much needed contribution. The more this info gets out there, the better. Dave would probably be the first to say he isn't the peddler of anything unique other than perhaps the coffee (I'd heard of using coconut oil in coffee pre-Dave, but not butter), but he's making the information more accessible and deserves to be lauded for that.

The Not-so-Awesome

The diet may be bulletproof, but it isn't a silver bullet (because no such thing exists). I would appreciate a section called "If this diet doesn't work for you, then...". Dave's advice regarding proper fats will correct most hormonal issues long-term, but there will be some people for whom this will not work or who will not have it work as well as it could. Finding a good endocrinologist may be necessary for you if you aren't getting good results.

This diet really did change my life by helping me lose 60 pounds -- but I don't even think of it as a "diet" in the conventional way! Never in my life did I think I could stick to any diet, as I'm not the kind of person who easily does that stuff - but this whole program is designed to keep you happy and full on healthy fats, rather than desperately craving sugar and carbs like other diets I'd tried.

Some of my results:
-I weighed 240 pounds (and was clinically obese) up until 2011. Since then, I have dropped and kept off over 60 pounds, easily.
-After my first year of eating the Bulletproof Diet, I went back to my doctor for an annual check-up, and when she weighed me the computer recording my new weight beeped, signaling there must have been some kind of error because it didn't think any person could lose that much weight in a year! Needless to say, my doctor was shocked and impressed.
-My upstairs neighbor literally didn't recognize me one day after six months on this diet as I'd lost so much weight in my face - I practically looked like a new person.
-I am no longer anemic or vitamin D deficient, thanks to the recommended Bulletproof supplement guidelines
-I have way more energy than I used to. I used to need 10-12 hours of sleep at night, and now I am in the normal 7-8 hour range.

I've been successfully eating Bulletproof for 2.5 years now and I enjoy it. Looking back, I have so much more energy than I used to that it's like night and day - the weight loss was really just a starting point for everything else. I hope other people who have struggled with food and health will give it a chance like I did. It only took me a week to start seeing dramatic changes as I switched into fat-burning mode.

This is a scam
How could you be complaining about not getting your bonuses before the book or bonuses are even scheduled to be delivered? I don't know what will happen and if they will or won't. My guess is they probably will honor the bonuses.
