John Durant’s The Paleo Manifesto is not just another diet and lifestyle book. It blends history, archeology, philosophy and good old do-it-yourself experimentation – and emerges with both general and specific prescriptions for better living through following the wisdom of ancient ancestors.

*Why should you use a stand-up desk rather than sitting in an office chair?
*Why should you go very easy on sugar, grains and dairy – and get at least half of your calories from fat?
*Why should you swim in cold water, and sit in a sauna, as often as you can?
*Why did the dietary and lifestyle prescriptions of the Bible (and even more so the Qur’an) make sense for our ancestors – and in many cases for us even today?
*Why is fasting so good for you?
*How can electric lights be bad for you?

Listen and learn!
