On my reading list: Death by Comfort by Paul Taylor

Isn’t this a great title?

I can’t wait to read this book. The basic premise is that our bodies evolved to do best with a certain level of discomfort–too cold, too hot, not enough food, the need to move to get what we need. Much of modern life has taken that away and that has resulted in a great deal of preventable chronic disease. I’m hoping that the emphasis of the book will be on the preventable part. Having heard the author speak twice on podcasts I think that it will be. I’m a big fan of the library and don’t buy many books. I’ve preordered this one. Its release date is November 8. If you know me, let me know if you want to read it after me.
