Books I Recommend, Sleep Amounts, Vitamins, Food

Questions from a reader - this one's about sleep amounts, vitamins, and books.

Hi Sebastian,

I'd like to thank you for writing the blog posts on your website. I just found your blog today, but I see a lot of stuff I think I can use on there.

Thanks, that's nice of you to say and glad you reached out.

I have a few questions about some routine-optimization that you've done, if you'd like to help me out:

My Experiences With Modafinil

--Nietzsche, Zarathustra

Modafinil isn't the biggest gain I've made towards peak experiences -- that'd be just basic exercise. It's not the largest gain towards general well-being, which is just a cleaner diet and very good hydration. It's not even the biggest no-brainer of a nootropic, the honor of which probably goes to Piracetam.

But with that said -- wow. It's some pretty amazing stuff.

In this post, we'll cover: 1. The effects and subjective experience, negative and postive, of Modafinil. 2. The routine I built around taking it, through trial and error, for best performance. 3. Some jumping-off points for further research.
