"I've watched as The Paleo Solution healed people after medical professionals had given up. Whether you're an athlete, or simply uninterested in becoming a health care statistic—there are no more excuses! Now you will finally look, feel, and perform as well as your genes will allow. Robb Wolf changed my life, and he's about to change yours too."—Kyle Maynard, author of No Excuses and 2004 ESPY Award winner
"They say the worth of a book is to be measured by what you can carry away from it. The Paleo Solution's value is far reaching for the knowledge that it offers. Robb has taken a unique approach to health and lifestyle that will help countless people."—John Welbourn, 10-Year NFL Veteran

He includes a 30 day breakfast, lunch & dinner meal plan with easy assembly type meals and some simple recipe type meals.
I would recommend this book to anyone who wants a practical approach to Paleo that is simple and direct.
If you're interested in paleo and want to know what it's all about, this is probably the least intimidating book out there, and I've found his 30-day meal plan (Chapter 12) extremely useful. I keep the book downloaded just so I can consult that chapter. He includes recipes even I can do (nobody calls me Chef Mary), and helps you make decisions when you don't know what the heck to eat.
I began with It Starts With Food, which I loved and highly recommend to anyone who wants a health makeover. But Dallas and Melissa referenced Robb Wolf multiple times, and I thought if, "If I like these guys, I bet I'll love hearing from the people who taught and influenced them." So I got this book.
Wolf gets into more aspects of the historical/evolutionary reasons for eating this way than the Hartwigs do. (As a side note, I don't think eating Paleo is only for people who believe humans evolved from primates...it's as easy to think about this being the diet people were created to eat as it is to think of it as the diet we evolved to eat.) He also touches on some of the details of the science not covered in It Starts With Food. I particularly got a lot out of his section on exercise. Just as It Starts With Food persuaded me that I really did need to change the way I ate, Robb Wolf does a great job explaining the epigenetic reasons why our bodies MUST move in order to be their best. And it's not about losing weight faster by burning off more calories. It's about being the best version of "me" that I can be.
Worth a read, for sure. You may even enjoy his flippant style--maybe he's just really light-hearted, right? The tone of the book wasn't for me, but it also wasn't bad enough to keep me from getting a lot out of it.

It's also written in a fun style that makes the science not too painful to read!
As appears to be quite common with Kindle books, there are a fair number of spelling and punctuation errors, but if you can ignore that then this book is a must for anyone looking to treat illness through diet rather than medication, as well as people new to Paleo and even Paleo veterans like myself who just want a bit more detail.
For instance, since reading this I've upped my omega-3 and Vit D3 intake considerably - I'm now sleeping better, getting less stressed, have better skin and more energy, so thanks Robb!
Robb Wolf write with knowledge and humour and his work makes sense. The book doesn't take long to read and you're left with the confidence to get started and make the changes needed.
An excellent book that has inspired me to try it for 30 days, as he suggests. I'll let you know how it goes!
This book gives a good grounding in the science of our diet and why we need what we need. It might not be for everyone but it has certainly made a huge difference to me.
