My Paleo Book is Republished

FTA-cover-300Some may have noticed the book now on the sidebar.

Yea, it’s mine.

I wrote it some years back and I forget, but it came in at about 100 pages or so. A year later, I collaborated with Hyperink Publishing once again to put out a greatly expanded Version 2.0, now about 263 pages in print length.

Yea, I think it’s still a good book.

Is it complete? What book is?

Does it reflect my up-to-the-minute changing views on diet and health? What book does that, for any author?

Would I write it differently today? What author wouldn’t?

The most recent part of the story begins a couple of months or so ago when I began getting messages from blog readers wondering why my book wasn’t available on Amazon. I checked, and sure enough, all that was available was chapter excerpts in Kindle version and the out-of-print paperback—available for the low price of $89 from used booksellers. What an investment opportunity…

I still get small royalty payments from Hyperink to this day, so I contacted them to find out what’s up. Long story short, the startup had run its course so they’re winding down. They reverted all rights to me and emailed all the files so I could do as I wanted.

Then, I sat on it for a while, mulling it over. I read it again myself and while knowing it’s not perfect, why let the elusive perfect be the enemy of the pretty damn good? I think it’s an excellent, easy-&-quick primer for any neophyte or newbie to get started on. Metabolisms haven’t changed much since 2012. Anyone can handily get good results just on the stuff covered in this book.

So, in short, I decided it’s better that it’s out there and available than not.

Here’s my book page where you can see the table of contents and the book intro, as well as—deliciously—read the reviews by Jimmy Moore and Tom Naughton. Too bad Jimmy became Ketotarded and Tom became one of his whoring, dishonest, enabling brown-nosers.

…There will hopefully be a print version soon. Don’t know what’s holding it up after a month now “in review.”

    Did you add new recipes and update old ones?

      Added lots between the original V1 (not many in that) and V2, which is the biggest part of the expanded length. But, this is exactly the same as V2, just different cover.

    Whatever happened to your gut bugs book? I remember there was a falling out and it got shelved, but seems like an awful waste not to release it. From what I recall yous had done a lot of work on it.

      Yea, I know.

      There is the workings of a plan in place, among other things. Now that wife unit is retired I have lots more time for stuff.
