Is Richard B. McKenzie a paleo-friendly author/researcher?

First post here . . .

I just listened to Hugh Hewitt interview Richard B. McKenzie over his new book, called "Heavy! The Surprising Reason America is the Land of the Free - And the Home of the Fat".

He briefly talked about evolutionary reasons we eat what we want to eat. Now, disregarding his solutions to societal costs of being obese, does anyone know his nutritional bona fides? I'm looking for more Paleo-themed/Paleo-friendly authors and material to read . . .

Hmm, thanks Beth! I think that puts it down the list of authors then, I'm not terribly interested in a policy angle quite yet . . .

The guy is an economist, so his nutritional bona fides are slim. I was able to read a good chunk of the first couple of chapters over on Amazon. This is not the book I'd read if I were looking for more "Paleo-themed/Paleo-friendly authors and material" ... it is the book I'd read if I wanted an interesting perspective on obesity policy.
