  • Fast This Way

    Dave Asprey

    Break the rules, not the fast with world-renowned biohacker and New York Times bestselling author Dave Asprey. For more than a decade, the Bulletproof founder Dave Asprey has shared his unique point of view and expertise to help fans become the best versions of themselves. From living longer to getting smarter, maximizing performance to practicing mindfulness, Dave's followers look to him for his take on the most effective techniques to become healthier and more powerful than most doctors think is possible. Asprey has been fasting for years, long before it gained widespread popularity, and if you're a fan of Bulletproof coffee and The Bulletproof Diet, you have been enjoying some of the benefits of Intermittent Fasting too. In Fast This Way, Dave asks readers to forget everything they think they know about the ancient practice and takes them on a journey through cutting-edge science to examine the ways novice fasters and Intermittent Fasting loyalists can up-end their relationship with food and upgrade their fasting game beyond calorie restriction. What IF eating the right foods at the right time can actually enhance your fast? What IF how you work out and sleep could trick your body into thinking you are fasting? What IF it were easy to skip a meal, or two, or three? What IF fasting is different for women, can be personalized to your genes, and can impact your mental health? What IF all fasts could be created equal? Fast This Way is a compelling read through the latest thinking on fasting and gives readers the manual and toolkit to make the most of their fasts and their personal biology.

    @caseyames @bulletproofexec @bpnutrition The books mention adjunctive coaching/programs. His upcoming fasting book has three-weeks of training people can do: https://t.co/TXrEqCLO2U

  • The Soul's Code

    James Hillman

    "Plato called it "daimon," the Romans "genius," the Christians "guardian angel"; today we use such terms as "heart," "spirit," and "soul." While philosophers and psychologists from Plato to Jung have studied and debated the fundamental essence of our individuality, our modern culture refuses to accept that a unique soul guides each of us from birth, shaping the course of our lives. In this extraordinary bestseller, James Hillman presents a brilliant vision of our selves, and an exciting approach to the mystery at the center of every life that asks, "What is it, in my heart, that I must do, be, and have? And why?" Drawing on the biographies of figures such as Ella Fitzgerald and Mohandas K. Gandhi, Hillman argues that character is fate, that there is more to each individual than can be explained by genetics and environment. The result is a reasoned and powerful road map to understanding our true nature and discovering an eye-opening array of choices--from the way we raise our children to our career paths to our social and personal commitments to achieving excellence in our time."--

    @astro_lass @almightykazs Psychologist James Hillman gives an in-depth talk on the boy inside each of us, and lays out strategies to acknowledge, to co-exist, and ultimately to father the immature part of ourselves—and turn it instead into a source of passionate energy. https://t.co/qFIgaR7bQ7

  • Metabolical

    Robert H Lustig

    1/ Dr. Lustig is a professor/colleague of mine at @UCSFMedicine & has done great work for the public on the dangers of dopamine-fueled sugar & digital addictions. I'm excited to see his new book called "Metabolical", on the lure & lies of the food & medical industry. Diabolical. https://t.co/RaCk2JQhEs

  • "Holiday and Hanselman present the ... lives of the men and women who strove to live by the timeless Stoic virtues of courage, justice, temperance, [and] wisdom. Organized in digestible, mini-biographies of all the well-known--and not so well-known--Stoics, this book ... brings home what Stoicism was like for the people who loved it and lived it, dusting off powerful lessons to be learned from their struggles and successes. More than a mere history book, every example in these pages, from Epictetus to Marcus Aurelius--slaves to emperors--is designed to help the reader apply philosophy in their own lives"--

    I’m lucky to have Ryan as an investor in my company, since he’s a NYT bestselling author that explains how to practically apply ancient wisdom for your personal development. Check out his latest book below: https://t.co/ygqUAh7zH1

  • Underground Bodyopus

    Daniel Duchaine

    "...learn what the world's top bodybuilders do to get lean and ripped--from thermogenic aids, thyroid hormone, and anti-catabolics to protein selection and macronutrient ratios...includes the top 50 drugs for dieting and a special section on diuretics for bodybuilding competitions"-- Back cover.

    Only the old school lifters will remember this, but Dan Duchaine was a genius (RIP) & his ‘Body Opus’ is what popularized cyclical ketogenic diets before Lyle McDonald, Mark Sisson, Peter Attia, etc. mainstreamed it. And it’s quite practical to do as well: https://t.co/oS7aguO1Ak https://t.co/jymd8SeNJ8

  • Presents the author's personal account of his spiritual quest to unite the diverse realms of body, mind, and spirit by combining Eastern philosophy with Western fitness routines to become an example of the peaceful warrior.

  • No More Mr Nice Guy

    Robert A. Glover

    Debunks the "nice guy syndrome," the need to please others at one's own expense with the hope of receiving happiness, love, and fulfillment, and offers advice for how to rediscover oneself, revive one's sex life, and build better relationships with others.

    @cch Nothing wrong with being nice. Everything wrong with being a ‘nice guy.’ Learn the difference. https://t.co/vk4JbeHYhw

  • Enough is enough! Many have struggled too long to control the symptoms of anxiety, only to find fear, shyness and worry creeping back into their lives the minute they let down their guard. The bottom line is that most efforts to "control" or "get rid of" anxiety simply don't work. But, fortunately, this book offers another option. Acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) helps people facing a range of psychological problems learn to accept painful feelings without becoming overwhelmed by or submerged in them. Then it works to help them identify their values and commit to living their lives in ways that make these values come alive.This is the first workbook to offer readers a complete, ACT-based programme for dealing with any anxiety related problem. The techniques in this book are equally effective with of the different manifestations of anxiety: social and specific phobias, agoraphobia, worry and generalized anxiety disorder (GAD), obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and more. The book is divided into weeks, with clear directions and objectives for each. The light, engaging style of the authors make exploring this new approach interesting, accessible, and fun.

    @Seneca87679997 Yes I highly recommend exposure therapy as well, with a psychologist that has an expertise in treating anxiety disorders with behavioral therapy (CBT/ACT). You can overcome fear of flying in 4-12 sessions usually. This is a useful supplement to therapy: https://t.co/3mqm80HjN1

  • Journeys behind the scenes of Silicon Valley to profile some of the colorful inhabitants of this high-tech universe, including David Filo, a co-founder of Yahoo.

    Cancel culture is antithetical to OG tech culture. Old School Silicon Valley accepted differences. Read @pobronson's 1999 book, "The Nudist on the Late Shift" But Big Tech has been trending towards intolerance & the solution is STARTUPS. Ouroboros: snake eating its own tail. https://t.co/YDdxK8kEBL

  • Draws on the principles Acceptance and Commitment Therapy to explain how mindfulness can overcome common emotional problems and help individuals escape self-defeating habits and rise above fears to create a richer, more meaningful life.

    @NaithanJones If you want a system to meaningfully improve your life, I recommend “The Happiness Trap” by Dr. Russ Harris. It’s a lay primer to Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (ACT), which I use in my private practice to coach CEOs & VCs & also train psychiatrists in. https://t.co/tAbXmlMrgN

  • LIGHTNING ROD THAT STRIKES FASTER THAN LIGHTNING ITSELF is a book dedicated to the study of the phenomenal legend in the world of boxing - Cus D’Amato. This work is a collection of scientific research on the origin of Cus’ unique style that allowed the legend of South Italian descent to nurture three world boxing champions (Mike Tyson, Floyd Patterson, José Torres) and train a number of individuals in and out of the boxing ring. The origin of Cus’ style was decoded by a voluminous twenty-year scientific study us- ing interdisciplinary research from the fields of history, archetypology, fate psychol- ogy, sociology, and anthropology. The research group, part of the Memory Research Institute - Expeditionary Corps, conducted repeated scientific expeditions to Italy, Ger- many, the US, and Spain. However, the conclusive milestone of this study was the Apu- lian-Calabrian expedition - the course and results of which are outlined in this book. “Lightning rod that strikes faster than lightning itself ” is based on a heuristic research model, which includes eight separate analyses (psychological, criminalistic, journalis- tic, etc). This method was chosen by the author so that every reader, no matter if he is a boxer or a coach, historian or psychologist, or simply an individual who is interested in the legendary boxing style of D’Amato, would be able to verify the results of academic research on his own and ascertain the quality of the facts and conclusions provided.
