I suspect that many people coming to this site are reading about Paleo for the first time and many of the things You will see and read here, in my posts and pages as well as in the comments which people are kind enough to leave, may have them feeling a bit bemused. I wonder maybe if some of my readers will feel as if they might be joining the story somewhere in the middle rather than at the beginning.

If the latter is a description of you then this book is going to help by taking you on a useful walk through the basics from what Paleo is, to where it came from and on to some fundamental things you will want to think about when considering whether Paleo is for you. I really think that it is the beginners Bible for Paleo; it is a New York Times best-seller, having sold more than 150,000 copies to date, which is apparently more than any other Paleo cookbook. It also boasts a 4 star readers’ approval rate on Amazon. So it is well-read and well respected by those who have an interest in this subject.

Content and Comments from Readers

The Book has some excellent tools such as a 7-day step by step guide on how to get started. A comprehensive list of do’s and don’ts, a starters shopping guide and the really big bonus, which will really kick start your Paleo campaign, over 100 Paleo recipes for you to get started. These will provide the reader with good variety and balance, especially for the newbie Paleo follower embarking on the transition to a Paleo Lifestyle.
The comments I have picked up from other readers’ really do support my own view of the book, in that they first and foremost applaud the simple plan that John provides for transitioning to the Paleo lifestyle. Another comment accurately notes that there is nothing at all complicated about the approach that he takes to introducing his audience to the subject. The book is written in such a way that the author is taking his readers on a journey, acting as a friendly guide along the way, providing advice, tips and tricks to ensure you are making a success of the transition, while being alert to the pitfalls and challenges that new Paleo followers may come across.
