あらすじ・解説

What secrets do Amazonian tribes, Himalayan hermits, and enlightened monks know about health and happiness that have been lost to the world today?

In The Awakened Ape, Jevan Pradas uses evolutionary psychology to hack the human mind and body to answer the question: "How can we enjoy life to the fullest?" The results, while unexpected, are completely backed by science.

Perpetually bored, anxious, fatigued, and overweight, modern society has failed to deliver the happiness it promised. The remedy, Jevan argues, is in a unique synthesis of a Paleolithic lifestyle and Buddhist meditation. A sprawling journey, featuring Jevan's adventures with naked Amazonian tribes and retreats with enlightened monks to learn the secrets of optimal well-being, The Awakened Ape will teach you how to achieve deep states of bliss. All while shaping your body into the fit and healthy animal millions of years of evolution programmed you to be.

You will learn how to meditate-from instructions for the absolute beginner to techniques for deep states of ecstasy and awakening; how to eat the optimally healthy diet for both physical and mental health; how to train the attention span so you can be focused and efficient all day long; how to exercise so that is fun, enjoyable, and something you look forward to; how to get rid of the habit of negative thinking in just one week; how to live like a caveman in the modern world in order to get the most out of your genetics; how to properly go to the bathroom (yes, you have been doing it wrong); and much, much, more....

Comprehensive, worth reading

Lots Of anthropological tidbits, as well as good mind bio hacks. Some stuff debatable but overall good perspective

I found this book refreshingly witty

The book is giving a new perspective on the impact of evolution on the modern days' life. Worth listening!

I would recommend skipping this one

The author considers himself a scientist and a sort of guru. I would say, he mostly falls short of both. He does cite some studies, and give examples from history, but he makes hasty generalizations based on these examples. At one point he tells a story of, he and a friend, picking up on two girls. He puts himself up as an example by bragging about telling his date to “go with him now”, after the “prettier“ of the two “wanted” him instead. For a book with the title, “The Awakened Ape“, I was amazed at the authors obvious lack of self awareness, at times. I would recommend, instead, listening to, “Why Buddhism is True“, by Robert Wright. Wright, accomplishes most of what this book is trying to accomplish, and without the pretentiousness that is found here.

Amazing and life altering

I really enjoyed this as a biology student. This book keeps up with a prevailing motif, that the natural way is often the "best" way.

Our future lies in a return to natural life

Our future happiness is wrapped in returning to natural modern practices that will help us live meaningful lives. Jevan Pradas has brought together science and ancient practices to create a guide for the living in harmony with our essential nature. An incredible book that has changed my life. Thank you Jevan

live changing

there is a slow start covering evolution so if you had any basic entry-level college class about hundred-gatherer societies it's a little bit of a recap but after that it gets into some very interesting ways to live your life

Mind Turning

This book may very well be the first Audible book that I will listen to for the second time—I enjoyed it that much. But — there's always a 'BUTT' — there is 'one' issue, that being the author's suggestion to "STOP USING SOAP AND SHAMPOO". Well, I did, for three weeks but (there it is again) my wife touched my hair and quickly withdrew her hand. I got the message. Despite this jarring response, this should not dissuade you from investigating this offering on your own.

The takeaway for me was in my growing appreciation for ALL of my ancestors. Think about that — most people know their parents and even their grandparent but how many knew their 'great'-grandparents? This book sparked this mind game to go all the way back, wondering who my great-great (etc) grandparents were. If you go back a thousand years, figuring 25-years per generation, then you quickly realize that you have approximately FOURTY generations to thank for your being here.

But that's only a mere thousand years, now go back two-thousand years and you've only a dent in your genealogy. Our ancestors go ALL THE WAY BACK, and there is no way to know they were, however, just acknowledging their existence is the first step in appreciation for their struggles and therefore, their contribution for our being — we would not be here if it were not for them, every one of them. And it is for this recognition and appreciation that I have this book to thank. So, thank you, Jevan Pradas for enlightening me. Yes, I highly recommend this Audible Book — you have a lot to learn and a lot to gain.

Unfulfilled potential

The first half of the book focused very much on hunter/gatherer society and the disconnect experienced between those and our contemporary western experience and lifestyle. A range of cross-cultural examples drawn from a variety of tribes to illustrate this were provided which provided much food for thought and indicators as to our life and health could be improved. Having said this there was little focus on the life expectancy in hunter/gatherer society and so there was a degree of imbalance and the majority of aspects of our western lifestyles were seen as negative with no reference to any positives. There was interest in the tribal examples cited but after these the book seemed to focus on mindfulness and Buddhism and how meditation can help us daily. Not such a bad thing but I have read other authors who have done this in a more coherent and integrated manner. As I came to the closing chapters, I felt that what we had here was yet another self-help book rebranded with the trendy new descriptor of a 'bio-hackers' guide. To summarise: a promising start which did not fulfill its initial potential for the reasons stated. By the closing sections this bio-hacking approach left me feeling 'hacked off' and was dragging out concepts over many chapters which could have been examined in far fewer.

Waste of money

Poorly read, and poorly edited (lots of changes in volume where pieces have been added).
The book itself taught me nothing apart from there are tribes that don’t live like modern people. Wow! How insightful. A total waste of money.

Informative and practical

A combination of science and practical steps to be at peace with oneself. Everything this in our head, everything is also not real and nothing matters... yet we still need to work and take the kids to school... this book helps us to appreciate what we have. Life is a brief journey. I tried the meditation, it is difficult. If I can improve on the that then all the other problems will be reduced. Definitely a thought provoking and enjoyable listen.

You are going to die.

Much better and easier to digest than first anticipated. Well worth the listen. Even if you don't get the meditation aspect, it's still an interesting perspective on the concept of obtaining contentment in life.

Embarrassingly bad

My brother and I started listening to this book on a long car journey. I’ve read lots of books on related subjects and this is just gimicky trash. We actually laughed repeatedly at how bad it is. If you’re actually interested in these subjects, look elsewhere.

posibly the best book i have ever heard!

this book opens your eyes to connections between spirituality, fitness, and lifestyle with a touch of science but what is all this if it is the same but nothing at all? Listen to this to become what you were intended to be!

Great, except for author’s anecdotes

Great book, great factual content for anyone who works in an office and are wondering why they despise it.

However, I found the author’s personal stories on ‘hook ups’ and success with women rather cringey

Enlightening!

Whether you agree with everything in this or not. it's worth listening to all the way through. the narrator sounds a little boring at first, but he grows on you. The knowledge of this after listening to Tribe has really opened my eyes.

Life-changing insights (if put into action). It's the sort of audiobook I want to listen to again.
