    I just wrote to Dragon Door. By the way, I got the Kindle Edition of your first book and it was fantastic.

    Thanks for posting here- I have been checking out your website and really enjoy your philosophy... inspired my April goal of completing the pistol squat exercise. And well... it's a little tempting to set a very long term goal of completing one while standing on my horse's back. LOL, a lot needs to happen to pull that off.

    But anyhow, thanks for injecting some fun into weight training and reminding me that there are worthwhile fitness goals to pursue that don't focus on weightloss.

    That was a great guest post you did Al. We all know you have a book out, and you didn't hard sell it. You did that post with true class, giving plenty of information freely, with a simple pointer to where more information is available.

    It would be great if more in the health & fitness, or even the internet sales, industry could take a leaf from your book. It's little wonder your post was featured on the site.

    All the best.

    Great post Al, and true class as always. I want to grow a big bushy beard in reaction to your "face thing" though...
    If you are new to the PB - please ignore ALL of this stuff, until you've read the book, or at least http://www.marksdailyapple.com/primal-blueprint-101/ and this (personal fave): http://www.archevore.com/get-started/

    Thanks! I've been getting a lot of positive feedback on the beard!

    Al, I hate your beard... and that's entirely based on jealousy.

    Is there a rough ETA on the paperback version?

    Home pull up bar

    Al, congratulations on the book. I've looked at a few of your Tompkins Square Park videos, and now I regret not starting on pull ups when I lived on E 13th.

    My local playgrounds have bars I've been using, but since I'm always watching a toddler when I'm there and the bars are not nearly high enough for me to hang from, I'm bolting one to the wall of my apartment. Is there one you recommend for home use?

    (Oh, and I bought Raising the Bar at DragonDoor.com Monday night)
