Praise

“A wide-ranging romp through evolutionary biology, physiology, and anthropology, Burn will make you question what you think you know about metabolism and your waistline.”
–Stephan Guyenet, PhD,  author of The Hungry Brain

“Burn
is science writing at its best: big ideas, wild and often hilarious stories from the field, and deft explanations. The result will reshape what you thought you knew about how our metabolisms work.”
—Alex Hutchinson, New York Times bestselling author of Endure

“Herman Pontzer is one of the most gifted science writers of our time.”
–Kelly McGonigal, PhD, author of The Joy of Movement

“Herman Pontzer’s Burn is a fun, fast-paced, eye-opening, and innovative book that will revolutionize how you think about the energy that fuels your body and everything you do. Please read Burn if you are interested in diet, exercise and what makes us human. It’s also enormously entertaining.”  
–Daniel E. Lieberman, author of Exercised and The Story of the Human Body

“An absorbing, instructive lesson for anyone concerned about their health.”
Kirkus starred review
