About the author

Mentor has been running self-experiments for over a decade, from cognitive enhancement with pills and powders in every color you can imagine to experimenting with 4.5 hour sleep patterns.

His previous book Smart work beats hard work covered a lot of his research and experimentation in health, productivity and finance.

Some of his writing on fasting is available on his blog Skill Collector, though this publication dives much deeper into the practical aspects of fasting.
