Full Disclosure:
I've been eating a strict Paleo diet for 2 years, and am probably the biggest fan (maybe consumer too) of sweet potatoes outside the North Carolina big sweet potato lobby (which I assume exists).

Bottom line:
The book is a unique and playful blend of two genres - cook books, and Paleo diet books that stimulates the reader both in the kitchen, and to reflect on life habits. I've read just about every book about high carb, low carb, fats, calories, Paleo, Zone, and the like, and Sweet Potato Power really fills a unique spot. There are very few books out there that are bold enough to try to bridge the gap between the science of digestion, nutrition, evolution, and every day cooking, and wellness. If you are one of the 99% of us who doesn't read the encyclopedia Britannica for fun, but wants to understand the big scientific and nutritional rocks that affect our health and wellness, and put these into practice in the form of self-experimentation, and the most exquisite and thoughtful recipes around, then this is a great book for you.

Things that really stood out:

* Hands down the most definitive collection of delicious (and beautifully presented) sweet potato recipes around. I've eaten every form of sweet potato I can, around the entire world (literally 4 continents) from ben imo to the American "yam" // my personal favorite is the Satsuma Imo. Sweet Potato Power has introduced a versatility to my favorite food that has renewed it's place in my diet. I'm the kind of guy that will eat a baked sweet potato in my hands walking down the street for practical nutrition on my way to the gym. My wife is the kind of person that for some reason doesn't always want to eat sweet potatoes and bacon walking down the street.

Format: Paperback
As an Ultrarunner and CrossFitter, I have tried a multitude of powders and gels to fuel my workouts and help me recover from my long runs. These have worked well enough, but can be costly and full of preservatives.

Since reading Sweet Potato Power, I have incorporated a sweet potato a day into my diet. In just two weeks I have already noticed a difference. I'm less hungry between meals, have increased energy throughout the day, am less moody, and have faster recovery from CrossFit workouts and long runs. My wallet is happier too - because potatoes are inexpensive.

There are a plethora of sweet potato recipes in this book. The sweet potato cupcakes were blissfully tasty. I am looking forward to trying the sweet potato sports gel. I am running the Miwok 100K in two weeks and I plan to have the gels on hand and sweet potatoes waiting for me in my drop bags.

Sweet Potato Power is a 10/10 - a non-pretentious, intelligent, and accessible guide to take charge of your health.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I was misled by this book's title. To be sure, it is an interesting book. As the subtitle tells us, it's about the Paleo Diet. As such it does a nice job of explaining the basics. As a sweet potato book it's more than a little thin. In fact, except for the recipes in the back of the book there's almost nothing specific about sweet potatoes or sweet potato nutrition. We're told that sweet potatoes are high in fiber and contain beta-carotene. That's true. What I had hoped for and didn't find was any in-depth exploration of what some people call a super food.

Beta-carotene is one of about 600 known carotenoids, many of which are a boon to human health. Carotenoids have been shown to possibly (I say possibly, because surprisingly little has been proven with nutrition) help with lowering plaque, helping eyesight, healthier skin and a host of other real and potential gains. There are other phytonutrients in the lowly sweet potato that look to be beneficial, too. Yet, about all we're told is that sweet potatoes have beta-carotene. And there's not even a mention that the best source of that nutrient comes from dark yellow or orange sweet potatoes. White ones have little. In fact, the entire sweet potato specific nutrition information contained in the book could be found in a 5 minute Google search.

The book covers mostly insulin response and the associated health problems that arise when the insulin system gets messed up. This is helpful information and addresses one of the biggest health problems faced by much of the industrialized world. However, sweet potatoes are just a plot device. The paleo diet is the real star of the story. Oh, we get references to the lowly vegetable in phrases like, "Eat healthy carbohydrates, like those in the sweet potato," and similar platitudes.

Loved this book! The information is both interesting AND presented REALLY well! Not only do you learn a ton from reading, you can learn a lot by DOING. There are some really fun/interesting/important experiments to be done throughout the book that help you better understand what's going on with YOU. Paleo is a great template, but this book goes beyond general recommendations and puts you in the driver's seat. Also worth mentioning -- some incredibly delicious recipes in the back!Definitely a worthwhile read and not like any book out there!!
