book reviews

There a reason fighting is compared to chess. It takes real smarts to succeed - street smarts, book smarts, and self-awareness. And both are a lot like life.
As a foodie and a mostly-paleo eater, I love that the world of paleo cookbooks is expanding. So I was happy to see the newest addition: "Paleo Happy Hour," by Kelly Milton.
"Paleo Cooking From Elana's Pantry" has some unbeatable recipes for paleo baked goods, as well as some features that make it ideal for people with food sensitivities.
Unlike your average Hollywood action flick, Melissa Joulwan's second paleo cookbook, "Well Fed 2" is a worthy sequel, with all the sassiness and deliciousness of her first book.
Michael Rosengart's book, "Prehab Exercise Book for Runners," is an excellent resource for any athlete who wants to improve mobility and prevent injury.

With its delicious recipes, "Against All Grain," by Danielle Walker, just might be my new favorite general-purpose paleo cookbook. Here's why - and a recipe too!
The newest in the series of paleo cookbooks from Sarah Fragoso, this one takes the genre in a new direction - specifically, to Italy and traditional Italian food.
I've always been a little skeptical of somatotyping, but Ben Greenfield's book was pretty dead on when it came to my training needs. I recommend this book especially for beginners.

"Dumbbell Training for Strength and Fitness" is a comprehensive guide to the dumbbell, with exercises as well as helpful information.
"Beast Tamer" is full of progressions and information for athletes and coaches. Regardless of your fitness level, this book is well worth a space on any strength enthusiast’s bookshelf.
"The 30 Day Guide to Paleo Cooking," by Hayley Mason and George Staley, is a perfect beginner’s guide to getting your feet wet with paleo eating or re-inspire your paleo habits.
Information is one of the best tools for growing your business. If you own a CrossFit affiliate or want to open one, "The Affiliate Yearbook" is an invaluable resource for growing your business.
"The Paleo Coach," by Jason Seib of Everyday Paleo, is a unique resource for coaches and clients who need an extra push with paleo eating and living.
After well over a decade and a half as a personal trainer, nutritionist, and more, I actually learned some things reading this book and that is a rare thing indeed.
"Sane and Simple Nutrition" by Nia Shanks provides simple, flexible tips to help readers break free from "OCD eating habits" and the guilt that sometimes comes with following strict diets.
