H & F book club. Who's in?

If anybody is interested, let me know and let's discuss a rough guideline to how we'll format this. Also if there's a book you think would be better, feel free to chime in. Maybe we can do rotations of who picks books, some more technical, some more open to interpretation.

There's a book I'm considering that i thought some of the people around here could also benefit from.

I've read that "deep survival" is good story that can be related to the difficult lives some of us live (between training, diet)....

"Examining such stories of miraculous endurance and tragic death-how people get into trouble and how they get out again (or not)-Deep Survival takes us from the tops of snowy mountains and the depths of oceans to the workings of the brain that control our behavior. Through close analysis of case studies, Laurence Gonzales describes the "stages of survival" and reveals the essence of a survivor-truths that apply not only to surviving in the wild but also to surviving life-threatening illness, relationships, the death of a loved one, running a business during uncertain times, even war."

It's $13 new on Amazon, and they range from like $3.

Let's get some feedback in here!

This might be a good idea. A lot of these books are quick reads.

Education of a Bodybuiler is a fun, easy read, though not at all educational.

It's more easy to kill with a sword than with a gun.

A sword is more frightening than toy-looking gun like glock.

robbing with a sword is a good thing

I figured you spilled a protein shake on the phone or something.

Are you suggesting all members read the same book and share their thoughts? Or, one members reads a book and share their thoughts. Then the next member reads another book, and so on?

Great idea.

I've been wanting to read a couple books:

Good Calories, Bad Calories
Why Zebras Don't Get Ulcers
Fast Food Nation
The Art of War
Wheat Belly

Quote:
"The subject of one experiment is a rat that receives mild electric shocks (roughly equivalent to the static shock you might get from scuffing your foot on a carpet). Over a series of these, the rat develops a prolonged stress-response: its heart rate and glucocorticoid secretion rate go up, for example. For convenience, we can express the long-term consequences by how likely the rat is to get an ulcer, and in this situation, the probability soars. In the next room, a different rat gets the same series of shocks-identical pattern and intensity; its allostatic balance is challenged to exactly the same extent. But this time, whenever the rat gets a shock, it can run over to a bar of wood and gnaw on it. The rat in this situation is far less likely to get an ulcer. You have given it an outlet for frustration. Other types of outlets work as well-let the stressed rat eat something, drink water, or sprint on a running wheel, and it is less likely to develop an ulcer."
***8213; Robert M. Sapolsky, Why Zebras Don't Get Ulcers: The Acclaimed Guide to Stress, Stress-Related Diseases, and Coping
