Let me introduce myself. My name is Mark Sisson. I’m 63 years young. I live and work in Malibu, California. In a past life I was a professional marathoner and triathlete. Now my life goal is to help 100 million people get healthy. I started this blog in 2006 to empower people to take full responsibility for their own health and enjoyment of life by investigating, discussing, and critically rethinking everything we’ve assumed to be true about health and wellness...Tell Me More
I just wanted to take a moment to thank everyone again for your tremendous support during the 21-Day book launch, and let you know how it all panned out.
The book release was a huge success. It didn’t make the NYT list (yet) but not for lack of trying. An industry insider shared with me that apparently the Times is down-playing Amazon sales as a component of their formula. We certainly sold enough in all channels to make the list. In fact the first printing sold out to booksellers (not necessarily end buyers) in under two weeks. C’est la vie. We’ll get ’em next time. With your help, though, the book made it to #3 on Amazon.com and spent a solid two weeks in the overall top 100 books. It scored The USA “Best Books 2011” Award in the “Diet & Weight Loss Category,” a top 100 ranking on the USA Today Best-Selling Books list, and is still doing very well. The stone continues to crack thanks to you.
I hope all of you have received and are enjoying your freebies. If you have had any trouble in this department shoot my team an email to and we’ll get you all sorted out.
For those that purchased 8 or more books know that I’m furiously signing away and that your books will be shipping out within the next week. Grok on!
