Aubrey Marcus owns Onnit. I learned about Aubrey and Onnit via the Joe Rogan podcast. Marcus presents a solid program of mind-body-spirit wellness practices. All very simple. Not sure there was a whole lot of new info for me but I like how it is packaged up. Very simple kettlebell and stretching movements can be found in the book. It would also be helpful if you are trying to improve on a specific area. Got to that chapter, digest it and start applying.

You need to be moving forward, always. Learning. Improving. Adjusting. Adapting. Be an artist. Hustle. Don't stop. You are responsible for your happiness, health and fulfilling work and wealth.

In this book, Christopher Ryan and Cacilda JethÁ debunk almost everything we “know” about sex, weaving together convergent, frequently overlooked evidence from anthropology, archaeology, primatology, anatomy, and psychosexuality to show how far from human nature monogamy really is. I am interested in Ryan and Jetha's commentary on agriculture and how it basically ruined everything.

Tim Ferriss' book on nutrition and exercise. He is interested in human optimization. I am someone that has been on a multi-year mission to improve my health. 4HB has played a role. This book introduced me to the concept of the "cheat day." Eat the low to no-carb plan he recommends but then one day per week, gorge yourself on bad stuff. All in an effort to keep your metabolism off balance.
