As many of you know, The Primal Blueprint began shipping this week. Thanks to everyone for the support and all the fantastic responses I’ve received during the pre-order period. Many of you have already received your copy and have begun reading it. I look forward to your feedback, but only if it’s positive. I’m kidding! Seriously though, all of your thoughts are welcome.
The book was built on the discourse that takes place here everyday and I want this to continue. I see The Primal Blueprint as the essential lifestyle guidebook off of which all things here at MDA are built. (It provides the foundation and context for the blog and a level of detail that can only be achieved in a full length book.) In this sense the book, coupled with the blog, the forum, and the newsletters, is a living document of sorts; growing, changing and evolving with the latest research and all the new content we publish.
A testament to my commitment to keeping the material new and up-to-date is the decision to include the Appendix online. Instead of adding another 100 pages to the back of the book we decided to publish the References (coming soon!), Primal Blueprint Resources, Suggested Reading List and three other sections that we originally intended to include in the book (Primal Blueprint Q&A – Everything You Wanted to Ask…But We’re Afraid to Know, Workout Suggestions: Lift Heavy Things and Sprint Once in a While) right here on Mark’s Daily Apple.
On one of these pages is a section I think many of you might find particularly interesting. I’ve written up comparisons between The Primal Blueprint and other major health and fitness books. You can check them out here:
Primal Blueprint Compare and Contrast with Popular Diets
Low Fat Diets (Ornish, MacDougall, Pritikin)
Metabolic and Blood Typing Diets
South Beach Diet
The Primal Blueprint (Pre-emptive strike…because it’s my book!)
The Biggest Losers
Thanks again to all the supporters out there. I hope you will continue to participate with me in this Primal experiment. It’s been a thoroughly rewarding experience for me thus far, and I hope you can say the same!
BTW – If you were waiting for the book to officially drop before placing your order now is your chance. Order today and you can still get FREE shipping and handling. Let’s Get Primal!
