I am so excited to be actually holding a copy of The Paleo Approach in my hands (well, I have to put it down to type, but it’s a real book and it’s right beside me!). Seeing it on a computer screen is nothing compared to actually holding a physical book, being able to thumb through it and see just what an accomplishment it is! The Paleo Approach will be released on January 28th, 2014–just twelve days from today! Woot!
I received my first copy Tuesday morning and filmed myself as I opened the box and got my first look at it. This was my reaction (and an excellent display of my lack of box opening skills).
The above video does give you a bit of a sneak peek inside the book, but I’d like to show you a more thorough preview of inside the book too. The video below walks you through the whole book (the book is so big, that this quick tour takes almost 13 minutes!).
Pretty awesome, right? Every single person who has been able to preview this book has loved it. And it will be out in the world in just twelve days! Yay!
Here are some individual pages from the book, so you can actually read bits and pieces and get a better view of some of the graphic elements. Click on the images to see bigger versions.
I’ll be sharing more previews for The Paleo Approach over the next few weeks, but hopefully this is enough for you to see how comprehensive a resource this book is!
I also want to point out that there is tons and tons of information in this book of interest to the paleo community as a whole, and not just specific for those with autoimmune disease. Anyone interested in understanding the science behind how diet and lifestyle intersect with health will love this book.
Update: The Paleo Approach is now available online and in major bookstores!
Why pre-order? Most important, pre-ordering guarantees you get a copy. The first print run is nearly sold out. Once it sells out, the book will be on back order for 3-4 weeks while more are printed. It also guarantees you pay the lowest price (online prices fluctuate constantly and you pay the lowest price between when you order and when the book ships). Pre-ordering is also the best thing you can do to support me. Book stores decide how many copies to stock based on pre-order sales (the more pre-orders, the more book stores stock, the more visible my book is, the more people see it…). It’s a way of getting the word out about my book that doesn’t require the effort of writing a review on Amazon.com and BarnesandNoble.com (although I am so, so hoping that you will do that too!).
The Paleo Approach will also be sold in bookstores and through other online retailers. And, it will be available as an e-book on Kindle, iTunes, kobo, and nook platforms. It will also be sold internationally (although I do know that there is a lag time between when in releases in North America and when it’s available internationally, and I don’t know which stores or online retailers will be carrying it in which countries).
And now, because boxes of books
will be arriving at my house early next week,
I want to give some away!
I’m giving away FIVE copies of The Paleo Approach
to FIVE lucky people!
And I’m going to sign them!
And I’ll ship them internationally!

I normally do one-week long giveaways, but I’m cutting this one short so I can get the winners’ copies in the mail as quickly as possible! Also note that this will be plenty of time to return a pre-ordered copy if you win.
