Epic Knowledge - "the EVOLUTION of a CRO-MAGNON" by John Joseph

This week I am introducing my first instalment of 'Epic Knowledge'. I have decided to feature a book by John Joseph called "the EVOLUTION of a CRO-MAGNON". This man has been a true inspiration for me in my health journey. Focusing on "Positive Mental Attitude" and making no excuses for the past shaping your future.

John is the front man of New York Hardcore band the Cro-Mags, author, plant-based athlete and a survivor of child abuse and the foster care system. Without giving too much away, John leaves an abusive family home and is shuffled through several foster homes, all of which let him down throughout his childhood.

After having enough and deciding to leave foster care, John slips into drug and alcohol abuse and finds himself living rough and in squats. This is an eye-opening account of someone fighting a lot of demons and how changing your mindset can change the way you live.

Growing up listening to hardcore, this was a book that really appealed to me. What I found was a story that was worlds apart from my childhood. If anyone could have been forgiven for giving up on life or supressing your emotions and feelings in drugs and alcohol it's this man. Now John focuses on PMA, living healthy and cruelty free.

If you are offended by four-letter words or political correctness, this may not be a book for you. I would recommend this book for anyone looking for inspiration or needing a kick up the butt to get going. John's tough ass approach is a true testament to the man. Check it out!
