Melissa McEwen just re-tweeted this interesting article about how vegetable oils have replaced animal fats in the American diet.
Have you read the book? If so, where does it stand next to standard "Paleo" thinking?

I just picked up the Kindle version. After a quick skim, I'd categorize it closer to WAPF than paleo. It's very whole food, real fats based with the idea that such a diet provides the right nutrients for the development of necessary neurochemicals. Grains and legumes are healthy foods in the Happiness Diet scheme.

Just read that same article and headed to Amazon to check out the book - from the free samples, looks like the focus is on whole, unprocessed foods (there are some references to whole wheat in meal suggestions though). Much of the emphasis is on brain function.
