Paleo Solution by Robb Wolf or Mark Sisson's Primal Blueprint? Based on both content and ability to comprehend (meaning, not so science-y that it goes over my head and all intention of the info is lost). What's your choice?

Anyone read "Grain Brain" and what did you think about it? Seems to be a new name to the Paleo community. Never hurts to have another person with impressive details carrying our message of course, with some extra research behind it. (more)

Hmmm. You want something "a little more in-depth, science-laden and preferably somewhat up to date" ... sounds like the Jaminets' Perfect Health Diet would fit the bill quite nicely.

Colpo's The Fat Loss Bible would prove a pretty handy resource, I think. Don't be discouraged by the title. Very clear (and persuasive) on the carb and protein needs of the athlete/ very active.
