I've read so many paleo books and blogs and feel like I have a good grasp on the 'paleo-thing'. At the same time I'm wondering if anyone knows anything about the "Paleo Dieter's Missing Link" (http://practicalpaleolithic.com/paleolithic-diet-blog/paleo-dieters-missing-link)? The idea of an individualized paleo approach is really appealing. Does anyone have any experience with this book?

Anytime, Meret! BTW, I'll always give you a refund if you want to download the book and check it out. If it's not going to give the perspective you need - which I think it WILL - I'll give you a refund.

Forgive me, but this sounds like every other bland and nonspecific "review" I've ever read online, for just about every product. I come to Paleohacks for specifics, dangit.

thanks so much for taking the time to comment! i really appreciate it! my problem in deciding whether or not to download the book is that i've read sooo many of them already, not including the blogs, and i'm not entirely convinced that it'll be more than another perspective on the same topic. at the same time, i've been paleo for over 2 years, and while i feel much better physically, i have not lost any weight -- something i'm trying to come to terms with given how well i feel, but is difficult because weight has always been an issue for me. love the reviews you linked to! thanks!

I agree wholly. I downloaded it. Don't regret buying it but I wouldn't say it's worth it at this point. It's mostly common sense. Although in the wuthor's defense there are a lot of folks that want their hand held so caveat emptor.

Never read it, but seems to offer you insight to individualizing a paleo diet that you could probably have gotten using the search function here for free.

I'm the author, so I'm a bit biased. I wrote the book based on over 6 years of experience with Paleo and specifically wanted to cover stuff that the other books either don't cover or don't cover as well as I'd have liked when I was starting out...

Since I'm admittedly biased, here are some reviews from people who bought the book and liked it..

There are also some free downloads and a preview on my site.

Yes, I'm still in awe of what Adam put forth in his book. Worth every single penny! Read it and take it to heart. Then find your path in the Paleosphere.

I just got the book a few days ago, and it's great!!! I could tell how good the book was going to be in the first few pages, the amount of information and resources alone is worth the price of the book.
