Meet Mark

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.

Announcement: Book Launch Update

By Mark Sisson
7 Comments

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!

Is the quote on page 67 of 21 Day TBT confusing to anyone but me? (I’m often confused.)

The whole fat explanation is very clear but the quote seems confusing. What is “bad” fat in reference to in this sentence?

Other than the above comment, love the new book. It is the one I will suggest to those interested in primal living.

This book should make many lives better. Thanks Mark and all who made it possible.

I just opened my book and read the quote…

Not all fats are good. Canola oil, safflower oil, peanut oil, corn oil, etc. Skip these. NEVER heat polyunsaturated fat – even olive oil!

I think the quote says that if you are cooking poor quality eggs and eating a lot of bread with it, then yes, you may get heart disease.

As long as you live primal you are set. For real.

Congrats on the awards! It’s also interesting to note that after PB, the finalist under the USA Today Best Books for Diet & Weightloss is “Beyond Broccoli, Creating a Biologically Balanced Diet When a Vegetarian Diet Doesn’t Work” by Susan Schenck

I’m going to buy that broccoli book. It looks like another book on the paleo/primal way of eating. A reviewer said this: “After much research and self-experimentation, she arrived at the conclusion that our bodies thrive best on the diet that they evolved eating–what is called by some the “paleolithic diet.” Our pre-agricultural ancestors ate meat whenever they could get it, as well as an abundance of vegetables, nuts, seeds and some fruit. They also did not have access to the grains that form the base of the nutritional pyramid that our government advocates. Susan discusses at length how health… Read more »

I’ve had your new book about a week now and I’m loving it! I bought it just in time to get the freebies and have enjoyed them as well (I even saw a few of my answers in the ebook, woohoo!). I only wish I had ordered sooner; I used the Amazon free shipping option and it took forever! (I think it just seemed that way because I was anxious to start reading!). Anyway, regardless of its standing on the NYT list, this book is a major home run and is sure to be a boost for the Primal/Paleo movement.… Read more »
