Wow! Can you believe it’s been a year since I released my book, The Potato Hack: Weight Loss Simplified? Much to my great surprise, the book is still selling well around the world and getting good reviews. Just this week on Amazon:
I picked the right time for a potato diet book for sure. Not only are potato diets now “all the rage” thanks to the likes of Andrew “Spudfit” Taylor (I even wrote the foreword to his book!) and Penn Jillette, both who credit all-potato diets with massive weight loss. But also resistant starch and gut health are constantly in the news, further leading people to my book. I noticed a big jump in sales last week, and then started getting notes from people who watched Dr. Oz discuss the power of resistant starch and the health benefits of potatoes. Now I just need Dr. Oz to say, “Read Tim’s book, The Potato Hack!”
Audiobook: Tantor Media is putting the final touches on an audiobook version of The Potato Hack, it should be available in April. The narrator will be Matthew Boston, he has a really great voice…you can listen to a sample of his narration here: Time is the Simplest Thing.
Chinese Translation: I’m working with the China Agriculture Press for a Chinese version of the book. In their last update, they told me they were trying to figure out how to translate the title so that it would be understood when translated. You’d think China would understand “hack” pretty well, lol.
A huge, heartfelt thanks to everyone who helped to get the book off the ground, and to all of you that purchased the book. It was a fun year, a great learning experience, and I feel like I might have actually helped a few people along the way.
