It’s time to find balance.
It’s time, now, to change.
We live in a world of incredible technology. We live in a world of ceaseless progress, and we live in a world increasingly detached from our roots — a world of growing complexity, and a planet bent straight under the weight of our unending march toward the future. Is it any wonder, now, that we’re not any happier? Is it any wonder that somehow, for every wondrous new discovery we celebrate, we’re not any healthier in our everyday lives?
These are questions that we can no longer ignore.
Even the most fervent child of modern times cannot deny this one simple fact: for every advancement in recent history, and for every breakthrough new technology that captures the public spotlight, we as human beings are worse off than ever before. We have a health crisis of unimaginable proportions, weekly rituals of stress and exhaustion, and this little voice, now, that says what so many of us are just starting to admit: something has to change.
Lucky thing, then, that this change starts with us — with every person like me or you.
You want to change. You want to simplify. You want to find some kind of balance, now, in a world that makes it harder than ever to live well, to live simply, and to be happy for every day that you do.
This book is for you.
“Roots is filled with practical and at times necessarily commonsense advice. While modern lifestyles are a distraction from the benefits of natural living, this book is a guide to help you reconnect with your natural roots. Blending personal experience and scientific fact, it touches on topics ranging from bedroom etiquette to intermittent fasting, all while pulling you back to a fundamental center and encouraging you to experiment, explore, and rediscover your roots.” — Raam Dev, raamdev.com.
Rediscover Your Roots
Roots breaks it down by individual rooms in a home — institutions we’ve come to accept as the norm, and institutions we’ve come to associate with unimaginable — and unnecessary – complexity.
Here’s a different idea: we can do this simpler. We can do this better. We can benefit, all of us, by taking a second look at our ingrained habits, and by passing a critical eye over each and every place where conventional wisdom has left us worse off than ever before.
Let’s take a quick tour of the house, now, and see what Roots has to offer. (Are you the impatient type? Skip to the end for a brief summary!).

And the best part?
These are just teasers of the content that each section has to offer.
Just to sum up, then, here’s a small glimpse of what Roots brings to the table:
- How to lose and maintain weight for easy, effortless health. And the best part? You don’t need numbers.
- How to wake up without an alarm clock — and sleep better before you do.
- How to save time (and money!) on your hygiene routine and still smell sparkly clean when you step out of the shower.
- How to counteract inactivity, which might just be one of the biggest changes we can make for our health.
The list goes on from there.
“Knowing that I already agreed with a few of Matt’s philosophies, I honestly did not expect to have my mind blown so wide open when I dove into Roots. Flipping the bird to so-called conventional ‘wisdom,’ Matt takes us from room to room, challenging the reader to stop and seriously consider why we do the things we’ve always done: what we put in our bodies and on our bodies, sleep habits and other daily (in)activities, etc.
This modern caveman has launched a no-holds-barred attack on several areas of life as we’ve grown up knowing them. It’s time to wake up (as Matt argues, without an alarm clock) and dig down deep to your roots. Put some careful thought into the motives behind (and, more importantly, consequences of) the previously unquestioned everyday actions that could be hurting — rather than benefiting — you.” — Mark Powers, bdaydday.com / thedonatingdrummer.com.

More Love for Roots
“Witty and positively bright, Matt brings to light simple and clear ways for all of us to go back to our roots. Ignore at your own peril.” — Nina Yau, castlesintheair.org.
“Roots paints a realistic picture of a simpler life that will have you itching to get outside and play again. It describes the life we are all desperately trying to attain every day with our ridiculous ‘I’m going to start working out and dieting…tomorrow’ resolutions, and then it shows us how much easier and inexpensive that life actually is to live.
Roots is a great read with plenty of invaluable information. Whatever your lifestyle — healthy or no — this book is well worth multiple reads. Matt has done his research on food, sleep, hygiene, and more, and has created an easy (and fun!) read covering it all.” — Bekka Scott, bekkascott.com.
“From explaining the simplest, frugal and healthiest way to eat to debunking the myths around hygiene products hyped up by marketing campaigns, Roots changed the way I lived my life. I now focus on living a simple life and avoiding buying things I don’t really need. Matt is a modern caveman in every sense of the word and has great advice.” — Caleb Wojcik, pocketchanged.com.
