Best Book for non-science reader?

Answered on August 19, 2014

Any suggestions for an easy to read book I could buy for relatives to introduce them to paleo concepts? The books I have are probably too heavy on the science (PHD, etc), I'm looking for something with a more mainstream appeal. (I'm based in the UK, if that matters.)

Mark Sisson's probably the easiest route to go. But check as I think he has a new book coming out soon.

In rough order of accessibility:

  1. Mark Sisson's "Primal Blueprint"
  2. Robb Wolf's "Paleo Solution"
  3. Gary Taubes' "Why We Get Fat"

In terms of impact, I'd reverse the order.

All three are a pretty easy read.

I love "Practical Paleo" because it's a lot less intimidating than a lot of the other books I have.

Taubes' Why We Get Fat is excellent.
