  • Convict Conditioning by Paul Wade · My rating: 4/5 · Explains what calisthenics is and proposes a simple but complete program that only requires time and commitment. No equipment, no excuses, only hard work.
  • Burn the Fat, Feed the Muscle by Tom Venuto · My rating: 4/5 · Burn fat through workouts and feeding your muscles with proper nutrition — improving your body composition — instead of starving your body. It's not a quick program; it's a lifestyle change.
  • Food Rules, An Eater's Manual by Michael Pollan · My rating: 3/5 · A handbook more than a book with simple easy to follow rules to know what and how to eat. A much needed guidance in a world full of things we can digest but that are not really food.
  • Sleep Smarter by Shawn Stevenson · My rating: 2/5 · 21 tips on how to sleep better. Some of the tips are common sense and some are counter-intuitive. Proposes a useful 14 day plan to apply almost all tips. Repetitive.
