Updates to follow.
One guy on Twitter, when I uploaded this earlier, tweeted: “it’s not pretty, but I’ll buy your book anyway.” Yea, these things are subjective to the max.
All I really hope for is that it’s ultimately judged in context of the intention:
- That it’s actually read. Non-fiction books are notorious for being purchased but not read. I’ve heard this over and over, from marketers of how-to books. It seems that the purchase scratches the itch.
- That it’s recognized as a total beginner’s primer. Yea, I’ll leave the deep science and whatnot to those with the credentials and whatnot. That said, I do touch on a lot of science stuff from the saturated fat and cholesterol dual cons, vitamin D epidemiology, to Weston Price’s K2, AKA, Activator X. But I do so in a hopefully light and conversational way, trying not to seem too pretentious for a non-scientist with zero credentials.
I think it would have been silly to try to put a book together for those already familiar with and getting results from Paleo/Primal. It’s just my sense, but I reasoned that what they might really want is something to give to friends & family that stands a good chance of actually being read.
It’ll take about 3 hours; more if one chases rabbits.
