Cordain's new book, The Paleo Answer, has much fresh information and plenty
of references. It's a bit repetitive in places (e.g. coming back to the
effects of lectins from the POVs of various foods), but very informative.
It's a convenient place to look into recent studies of paleo diets,
including the only four (so far) direct comparisons of paleo with other
diets, including the Mediterranean and diabetes diets. (Paleo comes out
well in all comparisons).


Warning: The Kindle edition is not well produced and looks rushed. While I
now prefer electronic books, I would have preferred to buy this in the old
format. There is no easy way to jump back and forth between the main text
and the references.
