Human optimization thought leader Aubrey Marcus's personal and professional mission rests on a single question: How can we get the most out of our body and mind on a daily basis? Marcus answers that question in Own the Day, Own Your Life, an empowering audio handbook that guides listeners to optimize every moment of the day, from waking in the morning, through work and play, until bedtime each night. With small, actionable changes implemented throughout the course of one day, we can feel better, perform more efficiently, and live happier.

First and foremost, I did indeed enjoy the book and the overall sentiment of helping people achieve their goals by optimizing small daily practices to "own the day". What I did find lacking was the breadth of the options. After reading such books as Diet cults, 4 hour body, Wheat belly, power of habit, and many more this book left me feeling that this was just one more view completely limited to a single prescriptive to optimization. The general themes are very similar to those in the above mentioned resources: sugar = bad, simple carbs = bad, get your sleep, exercise, and your life & sex life will get better. Some of the content is poorly researched in my opinion, one example would be bodily detoxification through sweat. Toxins such as mercury, alcohol and most drugs are eliminated by your liver, intestines or kidneys not sweat. Little nuances like that throughout the book left me skeptical and feeling that it was lacking. To say that the only way to "own your day" is to start it with a version of a keto diet, is to basically to say that there is only one perfect way, when in fact we all know perfection comes in all shapes and sizes.

Finally, a housekeeping and organizational system developed for those of us who'd describe our current living situation as a "f--king mess" that we "really need to get around to fixing one day". Unf--k Your Habitat is for anyone who has been left behind by traditional aspirational systems - the ones that ignore single people with full-time jobs, people without kids but living with roommates, and people with mental illnesses or physical limitations. Most organizational books are aimed at stay-at-home moms and people who seem to have unimaginable amounts of free time.

In short the whole book could be summarized in about 3 mins of tips. The rest is all filler. I mean cmon- I bought the book! Oh don’t need to sell me in the fact that my house needs to be cleaned! The feminist angle is a complete waste of chapter. I want my time back!
