No specific direction for recommendations, I'm just looking for something to read. It's always interesting to see where this community is getting their information/entertainment from. So anything from diet to fitness to ancestral lifestyles to cookbooks and let's even throw novels and general non-fiction into the mix. What have you got? What's the best book you've read lately? What would you want everyone in this community to read?

+1 for 'A Walk in the Woods' by Bill Bryson. Terrific book, plus, he's from my hometown.

For Whom the Bell Tolls - Ernest Hemmingway, nothing to do with Paleo, but it's a great book, and he'd be all about killing stuff.

Practical Paleo was just released in September I believe. I love it. It was written my Dianne who is known for Balanced Bites. It is a very informative book about Paleo, with many recipes. I bought this when I began converting my lifestyle to Paleo. It gave me a very clear picture of what foods to eat and vice versa, and why you should or should not eat them.

Check out Why Zebras Don't Get Ulcers by Robert Sapolsky. It is about stress and how it affects the human body- very interesting.

[http://www.amazon.com/Why-Zebras-Dont-Ulcers-Third/dp/0805073698]

Along with this, if you have Netflix- check out the Nat Geo special Stress - Portrait of a Killer, which features Sapolsky and is also as informative and eye-opening as it is captivating.
