Publisher's Summary

The best-selling author of Head Strong and The Bulletproof Diet answers the question, “How can I kick more ass at life?” by culling the wisdom of world-class thought leaders, maverick scientists, and disruptive entrepreneurs to provide proven techniques for becoming happier, healthier, and smarter.

When Dave Asprey started his Bulletproof Radio podcast more than five years ago, he sought out influencers in an array of disciplines, from biochemists toiling in unknown laboratories to business leaders changing the world to mediation masters discovering inner peace. His guests were some of the top performing humans in the world, people who had changed their areas of study or even pioneered entirely new fields. Dave wanted to know: What did they have in common? What mattered most to them? What made them so successful - and what made them tick? At the end of each interview, Dave asked the same question: “What are your top three recommendations for people who want to perform better at being human?”

After performing a statistical analysis of the answers, he found that the wisdom gleaned from these highly successful people could be distilled into three main objectives: finding ways to become smarter, faster, and happier. Game Changers is the culmination of Dave’s years-long immersion in these conversations, offering 46 science-backed, high performance “laws” that are a virtual playbook for how to get better at life.

With anecdotes from game changers like Dr. Daniel Amen, Gabby Bernstein, Dr. David Perlmutter, Arianna Huffington, Esther Perel, and Tim Ferris as well as examples from Dave’s own life, Game Changers offers listeners practical advice they can put into action to reap immediate rewards. From taming fear and anxiety to making better decisions, establishing high-performance habits, and practicing gratitude and mindfulness, Dave brings together the wisdom of today’s game-changers to help everyone kick more ass at life.

Life’s User Manual

My mind is blown, this is such simple and key information that is easily digestible and has the power to change the world. There is no way you could possibly read this and not make change.

Thank you Dave, so much love.

Definitely not game changing.

I bought this as I have enjoyed Dave Asprey's previous books. This one seems like a rip off of Tim Ferris's tools of titans idea. If you have listened to the podcast there is nothing new here, it is in essence just a rehashing of things from the podcast. I was hoping for so much more as he had been talking about spending hours doing a statistical analysis of his podcasts. I don't know how just grouping the most popular answers to one question can be considered statistical analysis?
If you have never heard the podcast it might be a useful book, but if you are a listener don't waste your time as you probably know everything in the book.

Life changing information

WOW!!!
Thank you so much Dave for affirming that we are limitless and in total control of our journey in life.
I thoroughly enjoyed every topic covered and had countless golden nugget takeaways.
Much gratitude and respect for the tireless and tenacious work you do to improve and demystify what our mind and bodies are truly capable of.

Wish it was all Dave

The content was FANTASTIC and I highly recommend this book to anyone, particularly people who are looking for practical ways to improve how they show up in this world and have ambitions requiring high levels of performance.

My ONLY criticism is that the performer who read most of it didn't really do it justice. While he was clear, well-spoken and concise, a lot of the nuances of the author's writing voice (which is very verbal and aligns perfectly with his speaking voice) were completely lost and much of his dry, nerdy sarcastic humor (that I love so much and I'm sure I speak for many of his fans there) made several key parts sound clunky, awkward and sometimes completely failed to communicate what I believed to be the intended meaning of several passages.

Especially if you prefer listening over reading or have trouble staying focused on information-dense literature, I highly recommend listening to this MULTIPLE times and at least once leaving it on 1x speed.

Good checklist if you are starting to biohack.

Good content, it does bring your attention to a few things that every high performer should be engaged in, although many of us probably already know about some of the material and hacks he describes. Think of it as a checklist or a toolbox.

Dave Asprey Never Disappoints!

I have read and listened to Headstrong and also follow his podcast. I was hesitant in this book because I thought it may be the same stuff over again. There is a lot of material in here that I was not aware of, and for the content that was a repeat it was all organized and simplified in easy to follow steps.

Loved this book from start to finish. Bookmarked so many pages to reference data, authors and tips to use - some I had been doing others were new- all around great read

Game Changers is game changing

I don't write many reviews, but, I read a lot, I listen to audiobooks when I'm not reading. I was compelled to write this review. Dave's book is a gift to those who are on a journey to become better, more efficient, creative humans beyond who they already are! Dave not only dives into the science behind every life-bio-hack, but, has proven they work by self testing everything he recommends. And, although, I've had a few chuckles at his expense over how he's had such bad luck growing up within toxic environments, inability to be a normal kid (it's mean I know), but, it's almost impossible to imagine him that way considering who he's become and how accomplished he is. I've tried a number of different supplements, diets etc to get my energy levels up, my thinking process to be more focused and very little has worked. Dave's roadmap is life altering. Not only am I more energized, but, I'm excited about a more profound life journey because of this book. I would highly recommend it to anyone looking to grow, manage health, optimize and become the best of who you can possibly be and become! Good luck! 🙏🏽

Another great book from Dave Asprey

As an executive, athlete & daughter of parents with Alzheimers and Parkinson’s... I find all of Dave’s content extremely relevant, important and educational. Game Changers is no different.

Thank you for the great content.

I've read all Dave Asprey's books and this is my favorite so far. It promotes the Bulletproof products less than other books. It's a type of "Tools of Titans" but with much better takeaways to improve ones health, performance and well-being.

Absolutely incredible and life changing book!

This book is a true game changer! This is right up there with the greatest books of all time in terms of study and life changing positive impact, at least for me and I am convinced for everyone else that chooses to read it. Just based on what I have gotten out of this book, and will continue to be getting out of it as I implement more and more of these laws / lessons with future study, it's worth its weight in gold and more. I have placed this book among the top 5 books for me. It's to share the spotlight with the likes of Think and grow rich by Napoleon Hill, How to win friends and influence people by Dale Carnegie, As a man thinkers by James Allen, and the Bible. All books worth reading, re-reading, and continuing to reread with committed study.

The attachment portion of this book does not seem to be working on the audible website. Please correct this relatively minor challenge. Thank you.

This book is a “no brainer”

I have read a couple of Dave’s Books and this is the one I recommend most frequently as it goes wide rather than deep and gives the reader a wealth of information. The laws presented herein are data driven recommendations for becoming a better version of yourself and are easily incorporated into everyday life. If more people took it upon themselves to proactively improve rather than relying on traditional medicine we would live happier, healthier, and longer. This book is a great starting point to get yourself on the right path.

Really good, some repeats

I’m really starting to respect Dave Asprey. His books are comprehensive, interesting, and organized. There’s some bleed over from his other books, but not too much. Very insightful.

One of my all time favorite books so far...

This is one of the most recommended and talked about books for me in a long time. It’s the only book I felt compelled to send to the CEO of my company along with a recommendation and questions about which of the ideas in the book the CEO already practices. I read this back to back with three other amazing books and it still stands out the most. The other three were Homo Deus, Cosmosapiens, and How to Change the Mind. Dave did a great job with this! I also wear True Dark glasses and drink Bullet Proof coffee but not just because of this book. I would like to reach 178 years old just to see if Dave’s estimation of his own life span comes true.

Game Changers is a Life Changer

thanks for the book, Dave. I have listened to many of the people that you spoke of on the podcast, but to have you condense it the way that you did was really exceptional, and frankly wanted me to go back to go to the podcast again. thank you for making a life-changer book out of Game Changers.
