Mark Sisson, author of The Primal Blueprint, has a brand new book out called: Primal Blueprint 21-Day Total Body Transformation -- A complete, Step-By-Step, Gene Reprogramming Action Plan. It’s a practical, action-oriented guide for how to eat, exercise and live Primally – a step-by-step, “cut to the chase” resource to make a smooth and quick transition into a Primal lifestyle. In it he tells you exactly what to do every day for 21 days to take control of your health for the rest of your life. Mark explains what this new book is all about, what’s in it and who it’s for.
Mark is looking to score this book on the New York Times best-seller list to gain exposure for the Primal Blueprint message, so he’s put together a loaded special offer. Basically, you order 1 or more copies between October 18 and 24, email your receipt to a special email address and Mark kicks you back a bunch of freebies. It’s a win-win. You get a great book for less than 15 bucks, and a bunch of free gifts, and you and Mark both get to help take the Primal movement mainstream. Check out the details of Mark’s special offer below and pick up a copy of the book today.
In terms of the book itself, I have a copy in my possession and it's everything Mark says it is in his introductory video, below.
In terms of what I think of the book, well, I think it's probably going to become the go-to book for the newbie. It's very, very heavy on the practical and to the point and concise on the theory. It contains dozens, if not more, full-color images and illustrations. Virtually every page contains a color photo, many inspirational but even more valuable, many instructional. For instance, it's one thing to list a bunch of good and bad foods, but actually seeing pictures -- and seeing the side-by-side difference between real food and junk food takes it to another level.
It's also nicely peppered with before & after pictures and stories.
In short, this is really the book to give friends, family, co-workers and colleagues who have been impressed with your own transformation. And if you yourself are new to Primal / Paleo, this might just be the practical guide you need. You can read it in a few hours, and you can get started the very next day. Each day has a specific list of things to accomplish that take you deeper and deeper into the Primal experience at a relaxed pace and before you even know it, in only three short weeks you'll be on your way to that transformation.
But OK, didn't Mark already publish the Primal Blueprint, and doesn't it go really into depth? What's the advantage to this over that, and what's the difference, anyway? Well I wondered the same thing and because Mark & I are friends who chat every now and then, I rang him up yesterday and asked him.
The Primal Blueprint takes a broader, more philosophical perspective that requires the reader get deeper into the science, the evolution and the back-story before getting into the “meat” of it. That works well for a LOT of people. For The 21-Day Transformation we took all the observations and questions we’d gathered from tens of thousands of user experiences through the Primal Blueprint, Mark's Daily Apple and our forum, Primal Leapers and PAST seminar attendees, and then used that input to reframe the Primal experience for those who prefer to cut to the chase (“just give me the meat, Mark. Just tell me exactly what to do”). It’s a wholly new experience, with new insights, new clarifications on older ideas, and a ton of added value. Plus, it’s more visual and succinct than The Primal Blueprint, making it an easier, quicker read for folks who want to jump in right away.
And it's only 13.77 at Amazon. How can you go wrong, especially with all these freebees?
