Dave Asprey is a Silicon Valley tech entrepreneur and professional biohacker. In fact, he’s basically the founder of the whole biohacking movement.
This book is basically his operating manual on how he’s going after that astonishingly ambitious (and equally inspiring) goal. The book has three parts: Part I: Don’t Die. Part II: Age Backward. And, Part III: Heal Like a Deity.
When I think about Dave’s goal to live to 180 and to “Heal Like a Deity,” I think of Yuval Noah Harari’s book . That book is all about “A Brief History of Tomorrow” and features Yuval’s iconoclastic thinking on three quests for the future: Immortality + Happiness + Divinity.
This book is as close to a handbook on “How to live forever” (aka achieve Yuval’s first target of becoming Immortal) as we’re currently going to get—which is one of the reasons why the sub-title is “The Bulletproof Plan to Age Backward and Maybe Even Live Forever.”
It’s funny because I’m often told that listening to one of my lectures can feel like drinking from a fire hydrant. That’s how *I* felt reading THIS book. :)
I’m excited to share a few of my favorite Ideas we can apply to our lives TODAY, so let’s jump straight in!
P.S. The dedication of the book perfectly captures the spirit of Dave’s quest: “To my children, Anna (twelve) and Alan (nine), who diligently sat by my side and edited this book in a way that genuinely helped make it better. It’s my sincere hope that when you are both over a hundred years old, you’ll let me help you edit whatever you’re creating. I plan to be there for you.”
