What if you could upgrade your brain in 15 minutes a day? In Smarter Tomorrow, an MIT and Harvard-trained brain researcher turned Silicon Valley technologist shows you how.

You will end up better able to: 
  • Stay in control emotionally, even under pressure
  • Pay better attention and think faster
  • Learn faster and remember more 
  • Be more creative
To do this, you will learn:
  • Which brain hacks work for you personally—and which ones don't
  • Which brain hacks are research-based
  • Which brain hacks are cost-effective and doable in 15 minutes a day
Best of all, you will learn a rigorous system to evaluate any brain hack. You will get access to 20 customizable self-experiments and a sample 12-week schedule.

While you're learning, you'll have fun. Smarter Tomorrow author Elizabeth R. Ricker guides you on a wild and edifying romp through the cutting-edge world of neuroscience and biohacking. You'll encounter Olympic athletes, a game show contestant, a memory marvel, a famous CEO, and scientists galore.

Join a quest for the Holy Grail within each of us: the optimized brain.

In Smarter Tomorrow, Ricker shares the spoils of her decade long adventure. After countless expert interviews, poring through hundreds of research studies from around the world, and testing dozens of tools on herself – including nicotine, video games, meditation, and even a little-known beverage from the Pacific islands – she explains how some experiments failed hilariously, while others transformed her cognition. She was able to sharpen her memory, increase her attention span, boost her mood, and clear her brain fog. By following Ricker's customizable system, you'll uncover which approaches work best to boost performance in your unique brain.

Join a growing, global movement of neurohackers revolutionizing their careers and relationships. Let Smarter Tomorrow change 15 minutes of your day, and it may just change the rest of your life.

  • "With a scientist's eye and an explorer's heart, Ricker sets out to optimize everything from cognition to creativity. If you're a brain-owner, you should be running experiments on yourself -- and this is the guidebook you're going to want."
    –– David Eagleman, author of Livewired and Incognito
