Publisher's Summary

Upgrade your brain in just 15 minutes a day with these fun, effective biohacking tips from a Silicon Valley neuroscientist.

A decade ago, MIT and Harvard-trained researcher Elizabeth Ricker set out to answer a provocative question: if you had only 15 minutes a day, no prescriptions, and a tiny budget, what tools could you use to measurably upgrade your brain? Smarter Tomorrow shares the spoils of Ricker's around-the-world quest to answer that question. After distilling insights from hundreds of research studies and interviews, Ricker tests everything on herself. Some experiments fail hilariously - but others completely transform her cognition. Ricker is able to sharpen her memory, up her attention span, boost her mood, and kill her brain fog.

Some of Ricker's experiments include: testing the positive (and negative!) effects of electrical stimulation, nicotine, video games and little-known beverages from the Amazon and the Pacific islands. Using a 9v battery to send a small current through the brain to see how it improved mental processing speed. A hunt for the root causes of brain fog using tests of brainwaves, blood, allergic responses, heart rate, breath output and sleep.

Join Ricker for a wild and edifying romp through the cutting-edge world of neuroscience and biohacking. Along the way, you'll encounter Olympic athletes, game show contestants, memory savants, CEOs and scientists. You'll learn the science behind human guinea pigging - and why self-experiments are the antidote to the frustrating, one-size-fits-all solutions that have failed our brains for so long. You'll also learn about abilities that Ricker dubs the new IQ, the new EQ and the 'say to do' score. By the end, you'll have a step-by-step guide for setting up and carrying out your own neurohacking experiments.

Join a growing, global movement of neurohackers revolutionizing their careers and relationships. Let this audiobook change the first 15 minutes of your day, and it may change the rest of your life along with it.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

I thought I would hate this but it was charming

I loved it, even though I was skeptical.

There’s a lot about bio- and neurohacking out there. And this book tries to be diligent and honest about the scientific literature on interventions. Including their limits.

The one thing, in particular, that I lived in was the actual emphasis on recording and randomizing your interventions as a mode of personal experimentation.

This is absolutely missed by many self-help(y) books that attempt to be rigorous. Here they play careful attention to this.

Refreshing, fun, and realistic.

Up To Chapter 12

I listen to this as much as I could stand. It felt like it was written for 14 year olds. It just went on and on with bland information with no real insights or learning. The narration was fine but the content was a load of nothingness.
