Legendary magician Penn Jillette was approaching his 60th birthday. Topping 330 pounds and saddled with a systolic blood pressure reading over 200, he knew he was at a dangerous crossroads: If he wanted to see his small children grow up, he needed to change. And then came Crazy Ray. A former NASA scientist and an unconventional, passionate innovator, Ray Cronise saved Jillette's life with his wild "potato diet". Outspoken, frank, and bitingly clever, Presto is an incisive, rollicking listen.

An entertaining peek into the life of my favorite comedic magician. Penn tells it like it is in this book about an important change in his and his family's life. He gives full credit and appreciation to his support network. I particularly like how thoroughly he disclaims that his method worked for him, but may not work for others. it's extremely insightful though.

TheBulletproof Diet will change what you think you know about weight loss and wellness. You will skip breakfast, stop counting calories, eat a high-fat diet, work out and sleepless, and handle stress with ease. By ditching traditional "diet" thinking, Asprey has maintained a 100-pound weight loss, increased his IQ, and reached a level of health that seemed unattainable. His 40s are truly better than his 20s, and The Bulletproof Diet brings his best hacks to the masses.

I began implementing the learnings from the book while Iwas midway through and am continually amazed by the results. Dave Asprey invested in all of our best selves. If you'll let it, this book may change your life. It's an easy listen and most inspirational.
