    When people first sit down with a health expert and want to know

    When people first sit down with a health expert and want to know how to create a healthy lifestyle most experts inevitably start by educating them on the importance of their overall diet, but make no mistake about it there is a lot more to building a healthy lifestyle than just ones diet. Sadly, the vital topics discussed in The Primal Connection like the importance of community, connection, and introspection are rarely topics most health professionals ever get around to discussing with their clients. Most of us are so worried about how much time we spend in the gym or how many grams of carbs or fat we are eating that the idea of play, sunshine, and personal relationships seem millions of miles away from what will ultimately produce that healthy lifestyle we are all looking for.
    Mark Sisson has truly given us a gift as he steps outside the boundaries of writing a traditional "diet" book and delves deep into the all-important philosophical, social, and behavioral aspects of optimal health. We cannot recommend this book highly enough. With each turn of the page it reminded us of what we had seen first hand in the remote tribes we have studied around the world during our 6 year, 7 continent,100+ country expedition we called The Calton Project. Being present in the moment, a strong community and a sense of purpose are the framework on which a strong tribe is built and from where personal strength, vitality and health are realized. No matter what your level of physical health The Primal Connection will give you the tools you need to take your health to the next level. The lessons you will learn between the pages of this thought provoking and inspiring book will enhance your life in ways you may never have thought of and help you understand the true meaning of living an optimal life.

    Highly recommded - must read

    This is Mark Sisson's best book to date. A great read for anyone who wants to be motivated to live a more fulfilling life. A must read for anyone who is or is considering living a primal lifestyle. Many hints to incorporating primal living - a little or a lot!

    This is a Must Read!

    Finally, a book that addresses the mental part of the equation of primal living. I am a personal trainer and nutritionist and have been moving toward a more primal lifestyle over the past two years. After reading The Primal Connection, it is as if a light bulb went off in my head. I have now committed 100% to the eating and cannot believe the clarity of mind and body that I now enjoy. This book will go to the top of my list of material that I recommend to my clients. Thank you again, Mark Sisson, for your continued dedication to helping people reach their potential!

    Great Primal Primer


    Mark Sisson delivers a nice book here that goes beyond his original Primal Blueprint. The Blueprint is focused more on healthy eating and exercise. This book is all about lifestyle. There are plenty of interesting ideas here and it is a worthy sequel to the Primal Blueprint.

    I would suggest that you start first with the Primal Blueprint, and if you are excited by it, then by all means read this worthy sequel.
