Can I just tell you guys how much I love and appreciate you? With the momentous release of my new book Cholesterol Clarity: What The HDL Is Wrong With My Numbers? yesterday, your overwhelming support for this project I have poured my life into for well over a year has been nothing short of incredible. When Amazon.com quickly sold out of their stock of the hardback version of the book early in the day on Tuesday, so many of you opted to get the Kindle e-book version pushing it to the #1 spot on the Hot New Releases Nutrition charts. Check it out:
I’m humbled that there is so much interest in this oftentimes confusing subject of cholesterol and I’m so grateful to finally be able to provide a much-needed resource that is expert-driven and written in easy-to-read language that literally anyone can understand (yes, even your Uncle Joe and Grandma Jane!). And the curiosity about the book isn’t just happening in the United States. Look at how Cholesterol Clarity is doing up in Canada for both the hardback version (which also sold out on the first day!) as well as the Kindle version there:
Woot! The international release of the hardback version of the book is coming on September 15, 2013, but the Kindle version around the world is available for sale RIGHT NOW. And it’s already blazing the Amazon charts in just the Kindle sales. Look at what’s happening with the Kindle version there at Amazon Germany/Austria:
It’s #2 behind only the world’s biggest professional tennis player. Awesome stuff! And in the UK the Kindle version there is currently the #8 bestselling nutrition book just behind a book by one of my featured experts, Mark Sisson:
Perhaps the most surprising place where the book is doing well is on the Amazon Japan charts where the Kindle version there is in the #1 position on Hot New Releases Nutrition charts ranking ahead of vegan diet advocate T. Colin Campbell’s latest book:
Wowza! Wherever you are around the world, let me personally say THANK YOU for helping make Cholesterol Clarity an immediate international success. It’s a great sign of things to come over the next few weeks, months and years as the message of this book gets out there into the mainstream and perhaps gets people to think about this issue of cholesterol as it relates to their state of heart health in a different way than an obsession over whatever their total and LDL cholesterol is. Change is happening and I’m happy to be on the front lines of watching it unfold before our very eyes.
If you’ve read the book already and feel like it is something that could benefit others, then I would certainly be grateful if you would write a review on Amazon for me. These reviews are a crucial part of helping people browsing for books find the best quality resources. It doesn’t have to be anything long and elaborate. Just write a few sentences sharing your impression of Cholesterol Clarity and why others might want to pick it up. THANK YOU!
I’ve been quite busy in recent weeks doing interviews on just about everybody’s podcasts, so check out my Media page to listen to me talk about Cholesterol Clarity. I think you’ll really enjoy the ones I did with Angelo Coppola on “Latest In Paleo,” Diane Sanfilippo on “Balanced Bites Podcast,” Sean Croxton on “Underground Wellness,” Sarah Fragoso & Jason Seib on “Paleo Lifestyle And Fitness,” and many more are coming soon! It’s been fun being on the other side of the microphone for a change. And some standout book reviews so far have come from Tom Naughton, Judy Barnes Baker, and Gary Collins. If you write a review of my book on your blog, e-mail me the link to firstname.lastname@example.org so I can add it to my list.
I’ve received so much incredible feedback from listeners about the raw audio footage I’ve been providing of the various experts featured in my book on “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show” in Episodes 713-721. There was so much invaluable information provided in those informal conversations with these world experts on cholesterol that didn’t make into the book that I just had to share them with you. My coauthor Dr. Eric Westman will be joining me for a special episode of “Ask The Low-Carb Experts” on Thursday, August 29, 2013 at 7PM ET to answer YOUR questions about cholesterol and the book. And Dietitian Cassie and I will return to “Low-Carb Conversations with Jimmy Moore & Friends” on Friday with two fantastic guests talking about various health headlines related to cholesterol.
Help me keep the momentum for Cholesterol Clarity going by sharing it with your friends, family, coworkers, doctor, dietitian and really anyone who is concerned at all about their cholesterol levels. Give them the FREE CHAPTER from my book and talk about why what we’ve always believed about the role of cholesterol especially as it relates to our diet and our risk for cardiovascular disease may not be true. Yes, we’re shaking some deeply-rooted paradigms here, but the message is grounded in science that is unfortunately being ignored because of the $29 billion in annual revenues from the sale of cholesterol-lowering statin medications. If you removed the financial incentive involved with lowering cholesterol with a drug today, then a major shift would begin to be made towards all of the things that we talk about in Cholesterol Clarity. The time is now to pull back the curtain on the biggest scam in the history of medicine and let everyday people just like you and me see the truth for a change.
THANK YOU again for doing YOUR part to start this cholesterol revolution and to begin the real change that needs to happen sooner than later. I’m so grateful to have the support of such an amazing group of people like all of you. You are loved and appreciated more than you’ll ever know.
