"What really drew me to this book was how literally down to earth it is. Chatham sets up a really simple plan to follow that has its roots in how the early cavemen ate ... This diet isn't unrealistic or complicated, and requires no exotic ingredients or crazy exercise routines. While this is more of a life-style change than a crash diet, it will eventually eliminate your cravings for all the bad food that causes so many health problems."
"Here is a great and simple book to get you started on Paleo eating. It is easy with straight forward advice and it is full of practical tips and almost 100 recipes. It has a seven day step-by-step program and a shopping guide to get you started."

But this is not a cookbook with recipes and photos. I saw quite a few reviews complaining about that.
If you're new to the paleo diet and you're looking for easy, non-intimidating recipes to get you started, I recommend these books:
Cave Wraps: 40 Fast & Easy Paleo Recipes for the Best Damn Wraps Ever
Everyday Paleo Family Cookbook: Real Food for Real Life
Switching to a not-terribly-strict paleo diet has changed my life. I have so much more energy and feel so clear-headed that it's really like a whole new world. If you're on the fence, I recommend getting this book along with the recipe books I mentioned and seeing for yourself the difference it makes in your life.
There are also a lot of practical tools included in the book. It includes an extensive list of acceptable Paleo foods, and the meal plans and recipes are very simple. There are hints on where to shop for high quality foods, what time of day to eat, how to avoid common pitfalls, and even quizzes for personalizing your approach to the diet. Chatham does not dismiss the difficulties you may encounter when you begin the diet, and I appreciate his realistic approach. He wants you to see that the initial challenges are well worth the gains, and help you truly adopt the Paleo lifestyle.
I initially lost 10 pounds in 2.5 weeks while starting, but then went on a 2 week vacation to visit family and gained 6 back. Grandma and mom won't here of you refusing their mashed potatoes and gravy. I did notice while on eating "regular" food again that I was much more fatigued and sluggish. I am back from vacation and eating according to the paleo diet and have lost 4 of the 6 pounds I gained. I feel more energetic and much better.
