How often do you REread Paleo books? Which hold up best to rereading?

Answered on February 24, 2015

Excluding cookbooks, which Paleo-lifestyle books hold up best to reading? Clearly the science is continually being refined as we learn more, I would assume the better books would be the ones that aren't making claims firmly in shifting sands of unclear research. For any factor you might go back for a second reading, which ones do you return to for reference or pleasure?

Perfect Health Diet is probably my favorite paleo/diet book. After reading ~30 books on the topic, it remains the only book that I can recommend to family and friends without hesitation.

Deep Nutrition is another favorite, but not quite as balanced or well written as PHD.

Jack Kruse's Epi Paleo-RX is the perfect book for someone that has already read everything in the paleosphere. If you don't mind conjecture and poor editing, this book can be extremely thought provoking.

I refer back to Good Calories Bad Calories, The Paleo Solution, The Paleo Diet, and Primal Blueprint frequently. There is a ton of stuff in Taubes' book and delves deeper than most. His info on Insulin is critical. Wheat Belly is good info as well. -Billy

Although I cannot imagine rereading it from cover-to-cover I have repeatedly referenced Perfect Health Diet. For this reason I recommend buying the book rather than getting it from the library.

Not Paleo, per se, but I just reread Gary Taubes "Why We Get Fat" after 2 years and am inspired (again.)

I agree with the people that said Perfect Health Diet. It is definitely a gem.

Been thinking of re-reading Paleo Solution. I know my paleo POV has changed quite a bit, just curious to see if it still fits in Robb's box.

Paleo Manifesto by John Durant. Finished it in two days, and then re-read it again in the two days after. I find Durant's writing to be really succinct and often times light-hearted and humorous.

Never. Expand your knowledge some. Read something different and new.

I haven't read any yet. I've been reading everything online and talking to friends and people on message boards.
