Just a quick announcement that the book is finally available after the normal number of snags here & there, including the holidays getting in the way. I’ll perhaps have more to write about the book later.
I read through it very carefully last Saturday morning for the purpose of touch-ups here & there. I came away with the sense that I achieved my objective of making this a short read in an easy-to-understand style that will be the ideal book to give or recommend to friends, family, co-workers and colleagues—especially those who wonder what you’ve been up to in looking so good and never taking a sick day from work.
Yes, the title and marketing focus on weight and fat loss because that’s what everyone thinks it’s all about, primarily. But it’s far more than that. Primarily, it’s about thinking differently. Everything then flows from there including lots of information on health and nutrition. I do incorporate as much of my style as possible, in terms of essential ridicule of just about everything Conventional Wisdom…but I do it without vulgarity so, the book is safe for work and for grandma too.
I think this one stands a good shot at actually being read, perhaps more so than the 300-page books on the market. It keeps things pretty simple, to the point, and moves onto the next point.
I wanted a low price point for this, because I really want it to get out there and become the go-to book to introduce someone to paleo. So, the price of a fancy coffee concoction at Starbucks seemed about the way to go. It’s $3.99 for all of the e-versions (PDF, Kindle, Nook, iBook). The print version should be ready next week and of course, that will be a higher price point, but I’m not certain what, yet. It comes in at about 110 pages.
There are a number of free chapters you can read on line at Hyperink’s sales page for the book. That’s also the place to get the PDF version. For the other versions: Amazon Kindle and Barnes & Noble Nook. The Apple iBook comes later (I think) and definitely the print version.
Two other things. First, as primarily an e-book, I make heavy use of hyperlinks within the text. This is the way of the future—shorter books that assemble and synthesize information that’s available on the web. But, for those with devices that are not web-enabled or who opt for print, I will have up later today a page that gives all the links chapter-by-chapter, so nothing is left out. The URL is provided in the book. Second, also as an e-book, I can essentially update it and revise it as often as I want, even expand it. So, bring on the suggestions, references, better references than I already have, or whatever you think. Use my email for that, please. One advantage of getting the PDF version from Hyperink is that it comes with free lifetime updates.
Finally, I would greatly appreciate customer reviews at the three sales sites.
Update: I now have up a landing page with the TOC and introduction included.
