Have any of you read Ishmael by Daniel Quinn?

    This book is very visionary ... using Old Testament stories to show how agriculture was not the way to go.....it's a winner!

    Great, great book. The whole series is worth reading. I read Ishmael right as I was starting Paleo/Primal, and it all just made sense and clicked. I need to re-read it now that it's been two years. I may take some new meaning from it now, as I have learned so much in this time.

    May I suggest another book along the lines of Ishmael that I enjoyed even more - it's called "The Gnoll Credo" and is a bit more poignant and cuts to the chase. The author, J. Stanton, does a great job of not only emphasizing the benefits of a paleo-type diet, but ties it all together in to a complete lifestyle. The book really hit me hard. I plan on re-reading here soon. Click here to read about the book on Amazon.com and learn more at Gnolls.org

    Thanks for the link, Nate A. I read the blog entitled "Eat Like A Predator, Not Like Prey" to DH this morning. It really brought some paleo ideas into focus for him: why we now eat so much fish, why I won't spend grocery money on milk or juice (if he wants it, he buys it from his own money), and why we have no more snacks in the house. I liked it so well I shared it on FB and am ordering "The Gnoll Credo" as soon as I have some extra money.
