Weekend Link Love – Edition 115

Posted By Mark Sisson On October 24, 2010 @ 8:00 am In Weekend Link Love | 20 Comments

As NPR reports [7], your lifestyle behaviors may not only affect your gene expression. They may alter your children’s, too.

Author Leo Babauta of Zen Habits just launched his new book, Focus [8]. For those looking to simplify the chaos in their lives, Leo has aptly dubbed his new book a “simplicity manifesto.” You can get it free as a download, or you can buy an upgraded version including some goodies like how-to videos (love the title “How to Single Task”) and interviews with the likes of Seth Godin [9].

I occasionally feature some parkour action here. This week you get dog parkour [10].

My good buddy and former professional triathlete Brad Kearns was recently interviewed on Matt Metzgar’s site. It’s a great read for folks who are Primal but still like to run [11].

For folks who enjoyed Wednesday’s post on doctor payouts from pharmaceutical companies [12], here’s an excellent interview with Ray Moynihan on a different marketing tactic Big Pharma uses: Promoting the disorder to promote the treatment [13].

And finally, zonk yourself out [14], man.

Comment of the Week

An email from a reader…


Curious observation.  I keep a pretty close watch on my finances.  I thought about looking at the difference between my dining expenses and grocery expenses.  I started getting serious about my health/workouts in 10/09, and I started the blueprint around Feb 10.  Outside of a few spikes, it’s a pretty clear divergence. . .
