Author Leo Babauta of Zen Habits just launched his new book, Focus. 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.

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.

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

And finally, zonk yourself out, man.
