    Primal Fuel
    I'm reading Dr. Bernstein's Diabetes book. He recommends a low carb diet, and is a 74 year old Type 1 Diabetic. Most don't live that long.

    Since you asked for recommendations of books on "well being," let me suggest Dan John's "Never Let Go." It's a collection of Coach John's essays about, as he calls it, "Lifting, Living, and Learning." It was a tremendously transformational and uplifting read for me because he really encourages us to adopt a more playful and Primal attitude toward fitness efforts.

    Re: (psychological) well-being, this book is a must read. Can't recommend it enough: "How I Found Freedom in an Unfree World: A Handbook for Personal Liberty" by Harry Browne

    "The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who have not got it." -George Bernard Shaw

    I read Cordain's book, and he totally lost me when he said you should eat skinless chicken breasts and throw out the rest of the chicken. WTF?

    I thought Lights Out sucked. Just my $0.02 (the writing and as a book, the theories are interesting).
    Good Calories, Bad Calories is just waaay too much, I do recommend watching the lecture Taubes gave on it (mark linked to it). Same info and it only takes an hour)

    I recommend:
    The End of Overeating
    Fast Food Nation
    In Defense of Food

    Convict Conditioning
    The Purposeful Primitive

    Born to run


    On a sidenote: Anyone heard of the book "Manthropology"? I read a NY TImes(I think it was the Times) article on it and it seemed so cool, but it's never come out in America.

    So I went to the library today... ONE, yes ONE low-carb book in the entire health and diet section. (An Atkins one, but not the original, just recipes and carb counting advice and such.) Local Bookshop: Ditto. On Atkins, nothing else. At all. There -is-one book called something like 'the diet and exercise myth' which was low-carb but a good 2/3 of it consisted of nothing more than testimonies for the 'system' - yuck!

    Going through my Amazon wishlists to fine-tune the choices....

    Oh one book I'm getting, is 'Why Zebras Don't Get Ulcers' - very important, original research on stress. Sapolsky.

    A great intro book that unfortunately is out of print is "Neanderthin" by Ray Audette. If you happen upon a copy, NAB IT! It's worth its weight in Gold! I was lucky enough to have a friend send me one just 2 weeks ago.
