Which books, in your opinion, work together to create a well balanced understanding of paleo knowledge? Books and blogs are all welcome.
If you could go back and do it all over again which books would you read and in which order?
There are the basics and then there are the really cool books you want to tell everyone about. So paleo is easy but what if you are going after the last 20% of information... So what is the base and what is the cream floating on the top? :-)
I am getting bit by the book bug and am looking for more cool books...
Save me from reading GCBC a second time... I read the Perfect Health Diet twice this week.

I've read quite an overload in the past 9 months. I don't know if I'd change the order for any other. But it went like this. From top to bottom, first to most recent:
Is Sugar Toxic (essay in the NY Times) - Gary Taubes GCBC - Gary Taubes Sugar: The Bitter Truth (video on Youtube) - Robert Lustig Why We Get Fat - Gary Taubes The Paleo Solution - Robb Wolf Primal Body, Primal Mind - Nora Gedguadas, CNS, CNT The Vegetarian Myth - Lierre Keith The Cholesterol Delusion - Ernest Curtis, MD The Great Cholesterol Con - Dr. Malcolm Kendrick Ignore the Awkward - Uffe Ravnskov The Dark Side of Statins - Duane Graveline, MD, MPH The Paleo Diet - Loren Cordain, Ph.D The Whole Soy Story - Kaayle T. Daniel, PhD, CCN Wheat Belly - William Davis, MD Everyday Paleo - Sarah Fragoso The Alternate Day Diet - James B. Johnson, MD Minding Your Mitochondria - (TEDxIowaCity presentation video) by Dr. Terry Wahls Against the Grain - Richard Manning (not necessarily Paleo, but anti-agriculture pro-grass-fed meat) The Paleo Answer - Loren Cordain, Ph.D Free the Animal - Richard Nikoley 21 Day Total Body Transformation - Mark Sisson
The only change I'd have made might be to have not included Loren's first book at all, The Paleo Answer is updated with more recent research and he has changed his mind on some things.
And a whole damn lot of blogs and twitter posts. The number of links to research posted by Dr. Michael Eades through his twitter feed has been a hell of a thing.
Right after starting The Paleo Solution I jumped on twitter for the sole purpose of following Paleo peeps, I've been gobbling it up non-stop since then.
Here's my Twitter roll in no particular order. (Some Paleo, some low-carb, a bit around the edges) Always looking for more, but only the ones who aren't too spammy.
Mat Lalonde Nora Gedgaudas Denise Minger Chrissy Gower Tom Naughton Dr. Rosedale Paul Jaminet Andrew Badenoch Martin Berkhan Kurt Harris Kaayla Daniel Weston A Price Modern Paleo (Diana Hsieh) Paleo Brands Emily Deans Paleo Comfort Foods Tara Grant Mark Sisson Jack Kruse (The Quilt) Melissa McEwen Chris Masterjohn Joel Salatin Loren Cordain Grass Fed Girl Robb Wolf Chris Kresser Karen DeCoster Richard Feinman Michael Eades Gary Taubes Jen Sinkler Lea Valle

I've read Cordain's original Paleo Diet/Paleo diet for athletes and I read Robb Wolf's book. Now that I've gotten the two main "Paleo Bibles" read, I focus on listening to Wolf's podcast and reading articles on Marksdailyapple.com
