Don't waste your time or money on this one!

Same thing over and over again - eat meat and salad and some potatoes! No real knowledge or science being used her for athletes. Limited use for athletes. If you want to do Paleo this is not helpful

Informative and concise

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

Yes if they were an athlete and strongly considering a Paleo diet. It provides practical DIY details into how to hone such a diet for specific sports.

What was most disappointing about Rockridge Press’s story?

I thought there would be more variety to the diet described. My biggest take away was that sweet potatoes and walnuts are awesome and grains are not. So that was less than expected.

Did the narration match the pace of the story?

Yes. Not too fast or slow or out of tone. It was boring sometimes though. Buying a Paleo cookbook might have been just as effective.

Could you see Paleo Diet for Athletes Guide being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

No. Unless they make a cooking channel showing how to make some of the foods described. I actually tried a couple of the recipes. Seeing someone do the food prep as it's being described could be really useful.

Any additional comments?

While I enjoyed this snippet into a diet that I don't use I think there was other less time consuming ways to find out what this book explains. i.e. a few specific internet searches could get most of it. The book just puts it in an organized grouping. If an interested reader is on the fence I'd say just do some Googling. Look into: Paleo's origins, science behind it, key tenants, adaptations for athletes, and FAQ. That's the book in a nutshell.
