There are over 300 clinical and academic references, and clear actionable steps you can follow to guide you through every part of the day.

This is the instruction manual for the human operating system. This is a process that you can fall back on to lead you to the best version of yourself. Not a single step in this book is out of reach. You don’t need a 30 day plan, or a radical lifestyle change to become who you want to become. You just need one book, and one day. Own the day, Own your Life.

How many self help books have people read halfway and then stop out of boredom or repetition? Not this book. Aubrey is realistic about what the average person is up against. He’s witty and entertaining as hell as he helps you focus on the present and winning the small, daily battles on the road to becoming the best you. I’ve learned a ton from this book... it’s basically my new daily routine. I’ll be giving it to everyone I know!

I’m an old guy now, long past my days of peak performance and this book is more relevant to me now as a father and a family man than it would have been as a hard charging kid. Don’t get me wrong, I still like to get after it, but my priorities are about living a great well rounded life and this is the perfect blueprint for that.

Aubrey Marcus is not fucking around. Every topic he tackles here could be an entire book of its own, but he instead managed to smash them together into one cohesive, category-killing manual on human optimization. It’s as ambitious as it is useful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Game changer for me! As a long time customer of Onnit and follower of many of the Onnit team, I was keen to read the mantra of its founder Aubrey Marcus. He nails it with this book by including both scientific and personal experience to base his suggestions. Inspirational and motivational along with being a great story teller. Well done Aubrey, I have already passed along the book for others to benefit from.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome book I'm only a few chapters in, but what I've read so far is awesome. It's nice to hear someone speaking and not just reading words on a page. You can FEEL what he's saying, and I love that.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from JUST BUY IT ALREADY Finally, a physical copy of a ‘kick in the butt’ I highly recommend this book–whether you follow the full routine or not, you will 100% walk away with the groundedness and intention of reevaluating where you spend your time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great read! It's a great book filled with good health advice. Anyone wanting to improve their health should definitely give this book a read. Also it's fun to read aubrey's writing. Lots of references to study's but still not afraid to tell it how it is and throws in some swearing and commedy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This book tho! I absolutely LOOOOVE this book. Seriously, such a game changer. I've read my fair share of self-improvement books (and then some..), and there is just something about Aubrey's way of conveying information that resonates with the core of my being in a way other books just haven't. I'm a single mom learning how to balance my high aspirations & personal goals with life's stressful demands all while consciously raising a little one alone - it's an intense place to be! But so much of this book's message has struck a chord within me; after reading the book & implementing its practices, I feel like I am an incarnated warrior who can not only manage in this life, but totally OWN it, enjoying dark chocolate, red wine & make good love all while simultaneously owning the day and polishing my life. I'm still integrating so much of the information into my day-to-day, and I just can't sing enough praise about this book. Thank you Aubrey & Onnit team for being so sensational. <3

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brings all the information together in a neat pack If you like the JRE podcasts, are into entrepreneurship, human potential optimisation, etc... then you'll get your money's worth from this book. It brings together all the information you hear from this community: about nootropics, healthy lifestyles, supplementation, etc... into one place and into actionable steps.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing book! I’ve been a huge fan of Onnit and Aubrey for years so of course I would buy the book to support the cause. I thought I would have already know all of the info though from different podcasts of heard with him though. I couldn’t have been more wrong. There are so many great techniques in here I didn’t know about and back with actual studies. It’s written in such an easy to follow format which makes it very simple to refer back to a section later for reference. So pumped to keep continuing my journey for Total Human Optimization. Thanks Aubrey!!
