The Intelligence Upgrade is about getting Smarter. Faster. And better at life.

I’m not going to tell you to take ginko biloba, drink green tea and ingest pathological quantities of fish oil. You’ve already read that in a thousand other blog posts, and we both know that burping up fish oil tastes like ass. 

Instead we’re going to accept the fact that we are human animals, that our body and brain are part of one integrated organism, and use cutting-edge research – and some tried and true oldies – to make your brain as healthy and sharp as it can be, cut some of the mindless chatter that saps your attention and your time, and make your days on this earth as interesting as possible.

Because make no mistake: your time is limited. (I have to remind myself of this, often.)

If you’re interested in the science, the newest breakthroughs, notes on nutrition and health that affect your brain; ways you can think faster, be sharper, and get one step ahead of the world that’s constantly nipping at your mental heels, then join the party. If you want the name of some dodgy supplement that will “make you 110% smarter TODAY!” I have some excellent swampland to sell you, and there’s probably websites that will make you happier. They won’t make you any smarter, though. 

Get real, and get inside your mind. All you have to lose are your limits…

Join the revolution. Give yourself an upgrade.
