Raising healthy families should be as easy as walking upright, especially in such a technologically advanced society as we have today. Instead, technology has actually become a hindrance to optimal health. Engineered foods, superfluous pharmaceuticals, and addictive electronic devices are making it more and more difficult to raise healthy families. In Paleo Family, we explore the fascinating history of technology in food, medicine, and consumer goods and also uncover the vast amounts of scientific literature that point to the startling conclusion that we’re so “healthy” it’s killing us! In each aspect of the family timeline, from mate selection to conception to pregnancy to feeding and nurturing children, we offer the golden mean approach to technology—utilizing the beneficial advances while not overdosing. Finally, we make simple, easy-to-follow recommendations based on the data. Part literature review and part history with compelling personal stories mixed in, expecting novices and experienced parents alike will find Paleo Family an invaluable resource for their little tribes.

Zero to Paleo: A Beginners’ Guide to Living the All-Natural and Gluten Free Lifestyle of Our Ancestors
For nearly two million years, humans and our hominid ancestors were eating in the hunter/gatherer style of foraging for a wide variety of healthy fruits and vegetables and then hunting and scavenging for large game. However, about 9,000 years ago, humans started eating in a manner contrary to their design, while living increasingly sedentary lives. In Zero to Paleo: A Beginners’ Guide to Living the All-Natural and Gluten Free Lifestyle of Our Ancestors, Joseph SB Morse shows how we can achieve ultimate health by emulating our ancestors’ hunter/gatherer lifestyle. You’re about to embark on an insightful, and often humorous journey to discover how humans evolved to eat, what cultureless humans would eat, and how we can use that knowledge with today’s technology and wealth to develop the ideal diet. Included in this edition is a detailed section on the most common food allergies and intolerances: dairy, egg, peanut, seafood, shellfish, soy, tree nut, and wheat (including celiac). The benefits of Zero to Paleo are immediate and include attaining an ideal weight, achieving balanced energy throughout the day, better sleep, and alleviation of symptoms from food intolerances and allergies. If you’ve been asking yourself what and how we were designed to eat, Morse’s Zero to Paleo is the answer.
Imagine the charter city of Ur in which there are no taxes, no forced regulation, and no laws except one—harm no one. It would be a libertarian paradise—a productive, free-market utopia with no equal on Earth. But would it work? Would people behave or fall into a chaotic dog-eat-dog arena in which the strong would simply crush the weak?
Jacob Tanner is about to find out. He will take his life-saving pharmaceutical company to Ur in order to escape an overbearing government bureaucracy. But just when Jacob’s drug company becomes profitable, he is confronted with financial dilemmas and a shocking truth about his industry and his business partners. He can prevent the deadly epidemic his drug treats, but in order to do so, he must overcome a corporate conspiracy that stands to profit from the disease.
“Chaos and Kingdom” plunges the reader into the cutthroat world of the modern industrialist struggling to create a valuable product between the extremes of constrictive government regulation and unfettered capitalism.
The gods will fall when the people rise.
Com DeGroot is an outsider politician who tells it like it is. But as he makes his way up the power structure of the U.S. Senate, he is forced to choose between his promising career and the promise he made to defend the Constitution. Just as Com is poised to make a name for himself in the cut-throat climate of D.C. party politics, he is presented with an opportunity to save the charter city of Ur, Texas from a suspicious partisan plot aimed at taking over the rare free-market hold-out. The only catch is, in order to save Ur, he has to go up against the most powerful men on Capitol Hill and risk all he has accomplished in his young career.
With the help of astute libertarian and elusive old flame Cate Heatherton, Com engages in a dangerous fight to save Ur from what they discover is a shadowy corporate-government conspiracy that will stop at nothing to get its way.
“Gods of Ruin” thrusts the reader into the quick-deal, high-stakes game of national policymaking, and uncovers the secret underbelly of a government where morality and the rule of law are quaint sidelights to all-engrossing corruption and power-broking.

Why do atheists and believers argue for hours without first defining “God?” Why do people describe Nazis and Soviets in exactly the same way yet place them on opposite ends of the political spectrum? Why do some judge others for being judgmental? Why are some psychologists trying to disprove psychology? And how does arguing show that we really agree? In the fascinating and groundbreaking new work, “Everyone Agrees”, J.S.B. Morse uncovers clues to these riddles and reveals how disagreements are merely the result of a difference in perspective of a shared “mountain of truth.” Using entertaining examples from both scientific literature and pop culture, Morse breaks down the popular “us-against-them” and morally relative mentalities, proving that everyone really does agree, even when it comes to such hot-button issues as politics, religion, and the NFL’s best quarterback. “Everyone Agrees” offers an introduction to the theory of concurrence, a unique take on human behavior which places logic (or simple common sense) at the heart of a universal morality. With the same accessible style and penetrating insight found in Morse’s first two books, “The Evolution Diet” and “How To Take Advantage of the People Who Are Trying to Take Advantage of You”, “Everyone Agrees” provides an entirely new perspective on perspective itself.
