For the last decade, Silicon Valley entrepreneur Dave Asprey has worked with doctors and scientists to uncover innovative methods for making humans perform better -- a process known as "biohacking." In his first book, The Bulletproof Diet, he shared his biohacking tips for taking control of your own biology. Now, in Head Strong, Asprey shows readers how to biohack their way to a sharper, smarter, faster, more resilient brain. Imagine feeling like your mind is operating at its clearest and sharpest, and being able to do more in less time. What if you could feel 100% confident about your intellect, and never again fear being the person in the room who just isn't smart enough, or can't remember something important? How would you treat people if the mood swings, short temper, and food cravings that disrupt your day could simply disappear? Combining the latest findings in neuroscience and neurobiology with a hacker-inspired "get it done now" perspective, Asprey offers a program structured around key areas of brain performance that will help you: power the brain with exactly what it needs to perform at its best all day long; eliminate the sources of "kryptonite," both nutritional and environmental, that make the brain slower; supercharge the cellular powerhouses of our brains, the mitochondria, to eliminate cravings and turn up mental focus; reverse inflammation to perform better right now, then stay sharp and energized well into your golden years; and promote neuron growth to enhance processing speed and reinforce new learning. Asprey's easy to follow two-week program offers a detailed plan to supercharge brain performance, including: which foods to eat and which ones to avoid, how to incorporate the right kinds of physical activity into your day, a detox protocol for your home and body; meditation and breathing for performance, recommended brain-boosting supplements; and how to adjust the lighting in your home and work space to give your brain the quality light it thrives on. A better brain -- and a happier, easier, more productive life -- is within reach. You just need to get Head Strong.

The information he presents on the mitochondria is quite detailed and interesting, as are some of the recommendations he suggests. Much of the nutrition advice is similar to a paleo type diet. For those with problems due to mold, he explains why it affects people and causes health issues. Pushes his coffee though.
