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. 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...

Introducing The Primal Blueprint 21-Day Total Body Transformation

By Mark Sisson
225 Comments

UPDATE: The special offer outlined in this blog post has come to an end. Many thanks to everyone that participated in this book launch offer. Grok on!

After The Primal Blueprint was released in 2009 I started receiving recurring back-handed compliments along the lines of, “Wow – really comprehensive work Mark, great detail and excellent research. But…what exactly do I do now? The Primal Blueprint 21-Day Total Body Transformation is the answer to that question. It’s a practical, action-oriented guide for how to eat, exercise and live Primally – a step-by-step, “cut to the chase” resource to make a smooth and quick transition into a Primal lifestyle. In it I tell you exactly what to do every day for 21 days to take control of your health for the rest of your life.

I believe that this is the book that is going to take the Primal movement mainstream, and we in the Primal community must do everything possible to land this baby on the New York Times best-seller list as soon as the book hits the street (now!). I need your help to do that, so I’m offering some fantastic free gifts (including free books! see the 8 book offer below) for this urgent promotion that expires on Monday, October 24, 12 pm PST.

What’s This New Book About?

The 21-Day Total Body Transformation is all about making Primal living easy – distilling the philosophy of the Primal Blueprint (detailed in the 2009 hardcover volume) into 8 Key Concepts, 5 Action Items, and a lively 21-Day Challenge of daily endeavors in the areas of Diet, Exercise, and Lifestyle – with corresponding journal exercises.

Friends and members of the MarksDailyApple.com community have asked for an easy, practical, and visual book on how to get Primal quickly. Well, if you can spare an hour a day for just 21 days, I guarantee that you will reprogram your genes and transform your life with this guidebook.

Who’s It For? What’s in It?

There’s something in this for everyone. If you’re a Primal enthusiast, you will enjoy the extensive commentary that picks up where the book, the blog, and my Primal seminars left off. Yes, this is a must read and you won’t be sorry, even if it reviews some of your existing knowledge base. Here I detail how to transition from a sugar burner to a fat-burning beast, reprogramming your genes to reject a carbohydrate-based metabolism in favor of burning stored body fat – and manufacturing glucose and ketones on demand to stabilize blood sugar and hormone function.

I clarify and expand certain themes that have been covered in passing in other publications, such as the integral role of complementary lifestyle practices (excess artificial light and digital stimulation compromising weight loss efforts, anyone?), and covering the spectrum of choices from best to worst in each Primal food category in more detail than ever before. We’ll dig into some fun new stuff like my favorite Primal tagline: Live Long, Drop Dead! (you know, healthy and fit till the very end, like hunter-gatherers), explore further why grains (and legumes for that matter) are bad and fat is good, and expand on exercise themes such as adding more daily movement to dial-in a Primal exercise program regardless of your fitness level.

If you are new to the Primal scene, this book is one-stop shopping for all you need to know to enjoy the most life-altering benefits of living Primally within 21 days. If you are currently Primal-aligned and wish that somehow, some way, you could bestow the “secret” onto family or friends who are too reluctant or too busy, this book should definitely do the trick. It’s beautifully designed and illustrated and packed with over 100 color photos and concise section summaries – a page-turner even for the most attention- challenged among us in the digital age.

Inside the 192 pages you’ll find:

  • Custom photos and detailed descriptions of foods to toss and Primal foods to enjoy.
  • Tips for shopping (locally and online), and dining out Primally – including the best fast food options and how to Primal-tweak restaurant menus.
  • Easy go-to breakfast, lunch and dinner recipes. You don’t have to be a gourmet to eat Primally! You can do very well even if you have almost no time for meal prep.
  • Workout descriptions and visual sequences for anyone – even sedentary folks – to get started with Primal Blueprint Fitness.
  • Concise summaries of the Key Concepts so you can fully understand how and why to reprogram your genes in the direction of health, effortless weight management, and maximum longevity.
  • An action-packed 21-Day Challenge, with extensive daily journal exercises that will provide long-term reference material.

  1. Mark, let’s help you hit that New York Times best-seller list! I’m ordering my copy now and spreading the word.

    1. Just completed my order through Amazon. Also picked up the Primal Easy Recipe cookbook to qualify for free shipping. Just finished reading the PB 9 days ago and have been trying to live PB since then. Already seeing changes in my weight, energy and attitude. I think the new book is just what I need to answer some questions and jump start my journey with the PB way of life.

  2. Just so that I’m clear, if I live in Canada there is no rush to purchase the book as none of the extra electronic content will be available?

  3. Just ordered mine. Can’t wait for the transformation. Thanks for all you do!

  4. As a Canadian, I have been following Mark’s Daily Apple faithfully for a few months after having gone Primal this past summer. Much to my dismay, as it was for your recent Challenges, you limit participation to within the US, even when you have world wide following. I imagine this is for legal reasons, but it is frustrating nonetheless. In this particular case, can I participate if I order from Amazon.com, even if delivery is abraod, or does delivery have to be to a US address? Thanks.

    1. It’s available at Amazon.ca as well with the free shipping over $25!! Chapters Indigo doesn’t have it yet though. Get Grokkin’!

  5. Mark – the small print – not outside US!

    Loads of us used .com from Europe last time to get you to the top, can you not include us at least for the online accessible content if we use the .com to order … I don’t mind paying the international shipping and waiting a few extra days to get you heading up the lists!

    1. Kelda, Greg, Lester, OK executive decision on the fly here. The 1-2 and 3-7 book offers with electronic content are open to anyone around the world who orders from the .com. Sorry about that. We were thinking more about the onerous costs of shipping free books around the world on the 8+ offer.

      1. Thanks. We’ll see what we can do to put you on the Globe&Mail’s book list in Canada.

      2. Thank you, I will go order from .com then 🙂 and I know just who I’m sending them to when they do arrive!

        I appreciate the costs of sending freebies overseas isn’t supportable but the online accessible stuff should be no problemo!

        Thanks again and fingers crossed we get you in the numero uno spot!

  6. The Worker Bees are doing an outstanding job…I received my email with freebies within seconds of sending my receipt! Can’t wait to get my copy! Will probably order more for Christmas gifts.

  7. Had I more money and wanted to create enemies this Christmas, I probably would have ordered 20+ books. Alas, none too many of my nearest and dearest appreciate my sage nutritional/wellness advice, so I will be selfish and just get one for myself… for now…! Looking forward to it. Grok on!

  8. Just wanted to agree with the above comments from us non-US people, I’m all for helping you hit the best sellers list, so if I order the book from the US site and have it shipped to my non-US address can I get the freebies?

  9. Within 3 minutes: amazon order, receipt received, receipt forwarded, freebies received! whoohoo – many thanks!! The Amazon reviews were very helpful and I ordered the Quick and Easy cookbook based on one of the suggestions there. Grok on!

  10. @Mark, that’s an excellent executive decision. You’re back in my good books. I’m sure the rest of your primal fanbase in the UK will be pleased to. I’m on my way to .com to order.

  11. I don’t have any money this week, but I posted this to Facebook. I hope we go mainstream. Wouldn’t that make shopping and eating out so much easier? This is so easy and awesome, it will spread.

  12. Mark, you and your team are really impressive and dynamic marketers. I usually disregard any type of marketing on websites, but I want to go out and order your books now. Keep up the strong efforts!!! I love watching the site grow!

  13. Hey Mark! Just retweeted your latest post, best of luck hitting the New York Times Bestseller list! I can’t wait to read what you’ve come up with this time.

    1. Thanks, Jesse, and everyone else for helping spread the word. If anyone else would like to help you can click the “ShareThis” link at the bottom of this article and pick from a list of ways to tell people about this special offer. Thank you!

  14. Ordered my book and got my freebies within 5 minutes. Woot! Time for primal to go mainstream!

  15. Man, I emailed my Amazon confirmation and received my free gift email in 2 seconds. Sure was fast.

  16. Just ordered mine. Mark, I just got your tweet about the book. Is there any way to make an RT more personal? I’ve got my Twitter account connected to Facebook, LinkedIn and Google Buzz. From a marketing perspective, we’ve got the STP; now we just need an enticing promotion in under 140 characters.

  17. seriously? Kindle books don’t count toward the best seller lists?? That… makes me wonder how they can continue to say that when kindle books outsell regular paper books on amazon these days… 🙁 I don’t want any more physical books in my house, I <3 my kindle. I'll have to see if there's anyone I can buy one for as a gift or something…

    1. No kidding! I refuse to buy any new physical books. It’s really too bad I won’t get to check out the password-protected freebies if I order the book for my Kindle.

      1. Ok, I’m bummed too. I’m excited about your book and I bought my Kindle version and I’m happy about it, but really, not even some partial goodies for us ebook folk? Feels like it should count for something. I’m a big fan and purchased the original, plus the cookbook…I am just no longer buying physical books anyhow so I can have all my reference in one place, easy to carry.

  18. I just picked up my copy, Mark. A Facebook “like” will shortly follow. I really hope you make it to the NYT best seller list. Friends and family like the fact that I’ve transformed my body but can’t come to grips with the way I did it! We need to bring these concepts into the mainstream!

  19. Mark,

    Does the book help someone start the day they get the book?

    Many books have be at least mostly read before you know how to get going. Is there a “quick start” section that lets them get going NOW and then continue reading?

    Thanks,

    Roland

    1. Roland, the point of this book is to get someone started right away. There is indeed a “quick start” section and all the tools to begin going Primal the day you receive the book. Thanks!

  20. just ordered mine…I can’t wait to see what it’s all about!

  21. Just ordered 3! Thanks for helping me jump start my Christmas shopping!

    1. And I posted about it on my local paleo meetup.com group! Thanks Mark!

  22. Just ordered the kindle version as well as hardback! Thank you Mark!! PB has made a tremendous difference in my life over the past seven months!

  23. Hey Mark just ordered ur book, its for my wife so i can get her to make the switch

  24. Bummer! I’m really trying NOT to buy anymore physical books when I have a Kindle. And now with the Kindle Fire coming out, reading books like this is even better… *sigh*

  25. Yes, that’s too bad kindle books don’t count towards the best-seller lists. Lame!

    I use kindle for ipad & feel a bit bad about ordering an actual book made from paper. Oh well!

    Best of luck to you! I’m looking forward to the book coming in the mail!

  26. Even without the lure of gifts, I’m quite pleased that my pre-ordered copy arrived last week…

  27. Just a heads up for Kindle owners: The last section of this book is workbook/logbook/journal. It was created for you to write down and track your progress for the full 21 days. The Kindle version of the book will contain a URL and password that directs you to a webpage where you can download a PDF of these pages, so you can print them out. So whether you purchase a physical version or the digital version it will require some paper to participate in the 21-Day challenge as my team and I designed it.

    1. NOW you tell me! lool… I just bought the book… well, I’ll keep the book but hopefully next time… either way, I’m looking forward to doing the 21 day challenge. I’ve not yet converted from low carb to paleo/primal and I’m really to move forward.

  28. Hi Mark,

    Does the kindle version of the book help you to the top of NYT list? I had heard that they only counted the paper books. I’d rather purchase the kindle version, but if the paper version helps, I will do that instead.

    Thanks!

  29. One for me and one for my stepdad. Here’s hoping it changes his life! Thank you, Mark. This looks like a great resource for those who want to get healthy but feel totally lost.

    1. I got my mom started and she is doing maybe a 50% right now and lost 22pounds in one month. She has a lot to lose but its motivating her to follow it more and more!

      1. This is good to hear! I am happy for your mom and hopeful that my dad can see the same results.

  30. I got 3! I am excited to get the book but the local stores already sold out what they had so I ordered through amazon.

  31. the background music in the video is the same jingle that “Marathon Talk” podcast uses. Ironic.

  32. I JUST sent my receipt to the worker bess, and got the gifts almost instantly. Bravo worker bees!

  33. I was disappointed to see that you are not including Kindle purchases in this promotion. I pre-ordered my Kindle version several weeks ago and am a loyal visitor to this site.

    Whatever version of the book we purchase, we are all contributing to your success….

    I know you’ve got your eye on the Bestseller List prize, but you should show appreciation for everyone who contributes to your success and buys the book.

  34. I’m in the UK but ordered from the US store! Spreading the word!

  35. Is there any chance this will be coming to the B&N Nook in the next couple of days??? I use a nook color for all of my reading these days and would love to purchase this from BN. I already own all of Mark’s Primal books on my nook and would love add this to my library.

  36. I am excited(!) for this book to arrive and ready for my transition from sugar burner to fat burner. I’m looking forward to adding some strength and muscle, too. Thank you, Mark, for all of the health and lifestyle improvements I have already experienced from your guidance.

  37. Thanks a bunch! I can’t wait to get it! Should be here tomorrow! Using my 10.00 coupon to order the original book! 🙂

  38. Mark, regarding international customers and the 8 book offer, am I correct that the problem is the international S&H cost?

    What if I ordered 8+ books from abroad, could I have the autographed books shipped to a friend’s US address instead?

    Thanks,

    1. AP, if it’s not too late, sure you could do that.Just put a note on the email you send after the Amazon shipping notice.

  39. So excited about the new book, bought my copy today and am spreading the word. Hopefully other folks I know will buy copies too, and those folks who seem really interested will be receiving copies for the holidays. NYT bestseller list here we come! Grok on and Go Primal!:)

  40. Looks great Mark! I’m very excited to check this out, and will recommend it to friends.

    Good luck with the rocket ride to #1!

  41. Just ordered mine, Mark. Why not, for ~$18 with shipping? Glad to help put Primal living in front of more eyes!

  42. I don’t know if international purchases made on the US store counts, but I’m surely spreading the word to all brazilians!!!
    I hope you get #1!
    I’m ordering mine and a few ones as gifts! Thanks Mark!

  43. Well, THREE books get you FREE shipping from Amazon. It rhymes and it is a no brainer: would rather get more books than pay for shipping:-), so 3 books it is!!
    Go, Mark and the whole PB community!

  44. Got mine! Thanks so much for working so hard to get everyone involved in a healthy lifestyle. I owe alot of my motivation to you and your website(and books!) and sincerely believe you are making a real difference in the world. Good luck to you and let’s get you on that best seller list!

  45. Just ordered from a Swedish online book store (I’m surprised they had it in stock!).

    Awaiting the worker bees decision whether I’m qualified for the good extras or not… ^_^

  46. Purchased…and ready! Thank you for all you do. New to this path but already feeling so great!

    Blessings,

    Bonnie

  47. The book is absolutely gorgeous – I love it as it is so visual. I am an avid kindle reader and I would recommend if you have a choice to purchase the book because of the fantastic color graphics – it may be different on the kindle fire however I do not have that one yet.
    These graphics make your message so clear Mark – Congratulations – it is a masterpiece. I got my copy last Friday from Amazon – I had pre-ordered a long time ago. I will be ordering more copies. Thank you so much for such an amazing book that is going to contribute so much to so many.

  48. I was so excited I had to check if my local B&N had a copy and they did! I picked it up today! At first glance this book looks awesome! I have been Primal since 2009 and although well-established in the lifestyle, I believe this book will be a valuable tool in helping me address those areas in my life that need some work! btw, I love the pics of Carrie in the VFFs!! =)

  49. Just ordered 3 copies and got my freebies right away. Been Primal for about a year now but will give the other two copies away to friends or family. Thanks Mark

  50. Not for nothing but the original PB is hanging in there on the Amazon lists, still in the top 500 overall (amazing 2 years out) and top 50 in two of the “diet” categories. (not bad for a fad diet;)

    I’ve ordered 3 and already know to whom 2 of the copies are going. Maybe now I can get my original PB back. Without necessarily naming names I’d be very curious if anyone takes the executive package. As it is there’s a certain baseball team here in Boston that could certainly use your services.

  51. OK – I ordered the Kindle version because I want it on my tablet, but I also bought the physical book to give to my Mom. She’s reading the Primal Blueprint right now.

  52. Just ordered my copy =)
    Congratz and crossing my fingers and toes for nr #1!

  53. I’ll post about it to my FB fan page. While I’ll be purchasing the book for my ipad I’ve got plenty of hardcover-book-lovin’ relatives who NEED a copy of your new book. Congrats!

  54. In the time it took to post a reply here that I had placed my order, I received an email from MDA with all of my free gifts. Now that is a way to run a business and keep your members happy.

    Thanks

  55. I’ve just bought the kindle version….no free stuff for me, but I do like that I have it now 🙂

    1. And since i’m in Australia, and hate waiting for things, thats good enough for me! 😀

  56. Just bought it. Was hoping it would come with a free Primal Blueprint book but no luck – so I bought them both from Amazon. 🙂 Can’t wait to receive them!

  57. Hi Mark-
    I’m psyched to have added one more book to your count on the way to it being a best seller. This is my 3rd book of yours, and I’m sure not my last. When I sent the receipt, I got the freebies immediately. But its not even about that. Since I’ve reached my starting goals easily, I’ve allowed myself too much slacking (just slightly) lately, and don’t feel as great when fully primal. So this will help me get back on track, and feeling great again! Thanks Mark!!!

  58. Just bought the book, downloaded the free content and now I’m searching the store for a way to spend my money! 🙂

  59. Book is ordered and post shared on Facebook! Can’t wait to read it!

  60. Just ordered one copy which will help many. Have your other books. Have visited your site for a couple of years now though I am quiet here. Thank you so much for your hard work. You are making a difference.

  61. The book is now #6 on Amazon for all books! Plus #1 for “Diets” and #1 for “Exercise and Fitness!” I bought 3. Grok on!

  62. Just ordered 3 copies. Can’t wait to share them with my friends who will appreciate your book, Mark. Sent my e-mail for the free gifts and as I’m typing this, they are already in my mailbox. Thanks, Mark. I can’t wait to start reading.

  63. I’m surprised to see the cover picture you chose was of people running considering your stance on running. I myself have avoided it for years unless while playing or in trouble with the law. Running to me screams boredom and torture (unless, like I said, it’s in the form of play). Not trying to hate that’s just my first impression. I love your shit. So thankful someone is tapping into whats real, getting attention for it and helping others see the way.

    1. Drea, that’s my wife Carrie (55) and I (58) sprinting on the beach. She’s pretty damn fast…and we had fun shooting that.

      1. Mark since you’re checking the comments what’s your opinion on the book Born To Run and its argument that the reason why chronic cardio people, your former self included, get so much damage to their bodies is because they have terrible foot posture from modern shoes, putting all their weight on their heels instead of their front balls and thus bypassing most of the shock-absorbant foot arch and letting the ankles, knees and even head/brain absorb too much of the shock.

        We even evolved nuchal ligaments on our necks as soon as we stepped out of the woods and into the savannah to stabilize our heads while running (but studies found that marathoners/joggers still get gradual brain damage — because they are heel strikers and don’t know how to run properly).

        Also I wonder if some of the over-training & heart plaque buildup problems seen in some studies may be caused by arrogant marathoners who think they’re invulnerable, and also by runners who mostly burn carbs and thus don’t know their own anaerobic thresholds – it’s easy to “overclock” your muscles and make them go anaerobic which in turn makes your heart pump like crazy for more oxygen when you’re constantly carbing up during the race.

        But a study found that after 2-4 weeks of high-fat ketogenic dieting aerobic runners become just as efficient at feeding their aerobic muscles with fat as the carb-burners. Except a fat-burning marathoner can’t afford to over-exhaust his muscles and deplete his glycogen stores so they have to pace themselves better.

        Wouldn’t our ancestors, who, according to the book, could outrun & outsweat most prey (when tracked properly) including horses & deer, mostly run on fat when hunting, as opposed to gatorade?

  64. I just ordered one on-line, thank you Mark for helping to change my life!

  65. Help…i can’t download the freebies. it is a pop-up issue? it just doesn’t do anything.

  66. Can someone help me with this please. I’ve just ordered and paid for 3 books (plus Primal Blueprint Quick and Easy Meals, and Everyday Paleo). Amazon have sent me a confirmation email acknowledging my order and payment, saying my order will be shipped soon. Do I forward the confirmation email to Mark or do I have to wait til I get my books. I’m in Australia so it will take a couple of weeks for me to receive the books. Thanks.

    1. If you ordered from the .com website just forward your confirmation email, no need to wait 🙂

  67. UK fans, I just ordered the book through amazon.com, and the price with “slow” shipping was only slightly more than through amazon UK. Hope this helps to push it to the top of the NY Times list and spread the word!
    Mark, when are you coming to the UK to spread the word here?

    1. Yep, I used .com too (ordered three from Scotland), everyone from outside the US can do the same if they are willing to pay a little extra for shipping; I reckon that’s the least we can do to say thanks to Mark for all the work he does here.

      Where are you guys looking for the ranking though! Please post a link.

      1. Kelda, here is the link:

        Mark’s at number three right now, though I suspect Steve Jobs is going to be tough to beat for the time being.

        Also, on a somewhat related note, Wheat Belly is number 34. You may want to help Dr. Davis out as well.

        1. Wheat Belly has very mixed reviews in the Paelo world and doesn’t really help our case with some sloppy reporting of the ‘facts’.

          Thanks for the links!

  68. Mark,

    Ordered three copies. Two will be upcoming gifts to some Paleo-enthusiasts but people who may need a good kick in the butt!

    Thanks again. Keep up the good work and the positive attitude.

    Much Love,
    Chris

  69. Ordered the book last night and received my coupons this morning. Can’t wait to get the transformation started!!

  70. Hi Mark, I just order my copy and can’t wait to get it so I can continue my journey to obtaining better health. Let me thank you for all the help I get daily from Mark’s Daily Apple. You do a remarkable job with all the information on the website. Thank you again and please continue, you have made a difference in my life and I know in the life of a lot more people.

  71. Hi Mark. I’ve been reading around on your blog for a while now and have incorporated some primal habits into my family of six a little at a time successfully. It all started with your ebook that I purchased a couple of years ago. I would like to support your cause to make this mainstream and would love to try out your new stuff. I don’t have high hopes immediately, but would like to send copies to my parents and sister also in hopes that they will come around.

    I was thinking about ordering three copies and having one come to me, one to my dad and one to my mom at different addresses. If I place each of the orders together, does that mean I get the audio and extra $, but they don’t get the extra gifts? I was considering placing three different orders to ensure that they both get the $10 to spend and the ebook and podcast. Am I misunderstanding the choices?

  72. As of noon on Wednesday, the book is number 3 on Amazon’s best seller list!

  73. Woow… I ordered my book yesterday and got it today. I didn’t request overnight either. Thank you, Amazon.com!!! I’m gonna start reading it on my way home in–half an hour! Excited now! *grin*

  74. I just ordered it! Looking forward to reading. The autumn in Norway is dark and cold. I need some inspiration:)

  75. Just ordered my copy and I’m ready to start this journey! Can’t wait to see the results. I hope you never get tired of hearing that you’re doing amazing things here and changing people’s lives for ever! Thank you!

  76. AWESOME! I saw this book was coming out when I ordered the Quick & Easy cookbook last month and just emailed off to get the freebies <3

    BTW, I just started it today (there was a potluck yesterday, lol) – Day 21 happens to be my 40th birthday!

    Only had to do the physical challenges as my pantry has already been purged and converted for over a year (minus my husband's Guinness which I don't even want to drink) but, hey, the physical is what I need help with!

  77. Got mine! Very excited; changed my eating while I started reading PB; looking forward to the push of a helpful plan!

  78. Hi Mark,

    I would love to help you hit the charts but the offer is only if you buy it from amazon am I correct? Since I live in sweden free shipping is not available and the cost is at the moment too much for me. If I buy it from a onlinebookshop in sweden I wont help you hit the list or what? I guess I dont get the offer either which is sad.

    Sometimes it sucks living outside the US. Both when it comes to crossfit and marksdailyapple.

  79. Ordered on the 18th and still have not received any confirmation or freebies. 🙁
    Can’t wait to get my Grok on!!

    1. James, maybe check to be sure you emailed your receipt to the correct email address?

  80. Just purchased the book on Amazon! Can’t wait to get it and continue on with my amazing new lifestyle.

  81. Hell, I’m buying the book just b/c I want it. The freebies are a nice touch though 😀

  82. I was just introduced to your website by an awesome friend of mine.
    PB makes so much sense. I’ve only read through a few pages, but what I’ve seen so far is absolutely fantastic.
    I will definitely be ordering a copy of your latest book and The Primal Blueprint as well.

  83. SHOOT! Wouldn’t you know it!! I’m a kindle reader and got my edition before I read the fine print! ROFL Sorry I could not help. But, I look forward to getting in to the book.

  84. crap, sorry! I ordered the kindle edition today and didn’t realize that it didn’t count. I emailed my receipt to you before I read the whole deal, and you sent the gifts anyway. Sorry. I would have purchased the actual book had I read closer.

  85. Question. What do they mean by the product is available to any single product? Does that mean, I can’t order anything that might come in bulk, like 4 pack or something?

  86. Glad to support your cause Mark. Appreciate this book/tool, I hope it helps me break through to additional family and friends. Anything to spark conversation and good old fashioned trial and error. Purchased 10 books to help get the ball rolling! Lastly, great to meet you in Austin… Erin gave birth to our daughter Annie July 27th and she is one happy little primal baby!

  87. Bought my copies and spread the word. I also gave my friends a buyback offer.

    If they get the book, give it an HONEST attempt and see no positive results after two months; I’m buying their copy from them.

  88. Bummer, I literally just ordered a kindle and this was the first book I bought for it. I didnt realize it wouldnt count.

  89. Mark,

    I was sorry to hear kindle doesn’t count but I got it for my hubby’s kindle anyway.

    I can’t wait to read it. I hope to see a total body transformation although I am semi primal already…

    Thanks for spreading the word.

  90. I just ordered my book. I am so excited. This is my first Primal book … yay! I hope this helps with the New york Times list.

  91. Ordered mine via Kindle because I don’t do paper books anymore. Wish it counted towards your goal Mark, NYTBSL really should rethink the way they list their BS’s based on advances in technology, particularly when it is decreasing the destruction of natural resources. Not your fault. I’ll enjoy and use the content no matter what.

  92. Is it okay that I bought it for my Kindle app? It’s already downloaded! I’m not concerned about the prizes but I want to help it top the NY Times best seller list. They do count electronic purchases, too, right?

  93. Oops. Should have read further in the comments. It’s a bummer that electronic purchases don’t count! I truly don’t understand why. A purchase is a purchase! But I live in a small apt. and have no room for physical books. Will like it in FB, though and hope someone who does have room buys it.

  94. I just ordered from amazon.co.uk then read this so have cancelled and reordered from .com….shame in a way cos means I now have to wait weeks for my book and have left a much larger carbon footprint getting it here but really want it, and freebies – and its all for a good cause!x

  95. Hi Mark, I pre-ordered your book some time ago (before all of these special bonuses) and was thrilled to get it as soon as it came out.

    Is there any chance that those of us who pre-ordered could get in on these bonuses?

  96. So, if I order today, October 22nd, I don’t get the other offers? Hmph! I was out of town, working 14-hour days, and do not carry a computer with me. Hmph!

    1. cjbrooks, all offers are good through Monday the 24th. Go for it!

  97. Been primal eating since April 2011 – feeling awesome and ready to take it to the next level!

  98. There is no excuse for the many pulses of bright light in that video; making my fellow humans stare directly into a strobe light is wrong.

    (Otherwise enjoy the site.)

  99. want to order from amazon.com but I realize that it will cost me around 30$ more to bring the book in Canada with brokage and duty… It make me laugh …where is the free trade agreement??? Just bad that I will miss those freebee buying from amazon.ca ;-(

    Bon succès à toi MArk!

    Harry 😉

  100. I got my copy and was able to begin right away (purge!) Great guide, thank you!

  101. Hola Mark –

    I’m in the process of purchasing the book online, and I’m looking for a second book to add to it to get free shipping =) I haven’t read the Primal Blueprint, though I do read your blog and have followed a paleo diet for a few months now. I’m debating between getting the Primal Blueprint or one of your cookbooks so I’m not always cooking from my laptop. I realize good info is in all, but I wasn’t sure how much more info is in the Primal Blueprint from your new book. Thanks!

    Catherine

  102. Just ordered mine. I’m hoping there is something in there about moving kids over to the primal way of eating. My husband and I are very excited about having our whole family living a healthy and fit life!

  103. Hey hey , I wrote to my cousin in USA, she buy it in store, will ship it to me from Toronto in november and here we go the freebee! 😉

    I’m going bed with the podcast on my ipod!

    Thx MArk!

    You french canadian friend! 😉

  104. I just ordered mine, and got the freebies right way! Nice. Except there was no $10 coupon…doesn’t that come with buying one book?
    Thanks!

    1. Oh oops never mind…just saw it in the actual email portion!
      Thanks again!

  105. I came across your blog. I wanted to change the way I eat, increase my energy and take off more weight. You onvinced me to purchase your 21 day Primal Blueprint total body transformation book along with your quick and easy meals book. I am brand new to Primal Footprints, any suggestions, just began training for my 1st sprint triathlon set for in the early spring. Thanks

  106. purchased my copy, and also a copy of primal recipes under 30 minutes. I truly hope that this makes it to the NYT best seller list. I love this site and this community a lot and though I am a recent newcomer and I will be sad to see it grow so big, I think that more people out there could really use this help sleeping, getting moving, having sex, and feeling better, period.

  107. Mark – I just ordered mine from my favorite indie neighborhood bookshop! It will be in on Weds. Can’t wait ! The guy who took my order was fascinated. Usually when I order books they get an extra one or two for the shop. I guess I’m known for ordering cool books!

    Gail – still cured of Diabetes after going Primal/Paleo. Thanks for the inspiration and guidance Mark !!!

  108. Hey all,
    I just ordered 5 copies, but I can’t figure out how to send the receipt via email. Amazon.com only allows me to see the invoice if signed in with my password and username, which I would prefer not to give haha. How has everyone else done it?

  109. Just ordered mine. It looks interesting! Nothing else has worked so far.

  110. Just in the nick of time! Can’t wait to read your new book. =)

  111. I realize I am late to this offer, but I am waiting for the book to come out on iBooks. What I really want to know is how can I get the primal living in the real world book?

  112. Hey — I purchased my book on the Amazon Kindle. I dom’t mind so much missing out on the free gifts, but how can I get the worksheets in a printable form to fill out? If you’ve made the book available that way, I would hope you have them in a pdf format so people like me can use them…! Right?

  113. Hi, I ordered three copies of your new book but had a lot happening at the time. I never got the chance to slow down enough until now to use the gifts that came with. Is it still possible for me to use those? Great site, keep it up!

  114. Just orderd the Primal 21 day transformation..cant wait ti get started. Your website is full of knowledge and great tips..thank you Mark !!

  115. I just found your blog and was disappointed to learn the free downloads have been discontiued. I could have used those.

  116. Thank you for the auspiious writeup. It in fact was a amusement account it.
    Look advanced to more added agreeable from you!
    By the way, how coud we communicate?
