On his site it says "Although we removed the page for ordering books several months ago, there's still a backlog of orders, so there can be a very long delay, but the orders are still being filled."

This implies that there were recently books for sale. Copies appear to be rare from second hand sellers.

How can I get my hands on his books? I have read much of the material online, but physical copies are so important, especially given the current campaign of mass internet censorship.

I am imagining us as scholars saving scrolls from a burning library. Just trying to absorb and preserve what we can.

Thanks.

That message on his site has been there literally years. Your best bet would be to email him and ask I think.

You can find his books online as pdfs and save them to your computer if you were worried about the information being deleted.

Based on my experience many books should still be available. I saw the titles and prices he had listed at his bookstore: Ray Peat They don't cost much and really are a steal. Just do what I did and snail mail him a check for the books you would like. I paid in advance via snail mail for all of the listed Ray Peat books.

In October of 2020 whoever it was that responded via email was very polite got back to me promptly to let me know what books he had in stock. And offered me electronic copies for the ones he didn't have in paperback. As of October he had all the books in print which they mailed to me, except Generative Energy. They sent that to me in electronic format. See their email response to me below and their bookstore list of titles and prices:

You recently ordered 1 each of Ray Peat’s books however, “Generative Energy” is currently out of print in paperback. It is available as an E-book if you would like to get that instead. Attached is a list of his e-books, a list of digitally available back-issues of his Newsletter which are $2/copy as well as a recent copy of his Newsletter. Please ask for any of these items you are interested in as you very generously gave more than the value of your purchase.

Thank You, and Best Wishes

So I thought this might be helpful for anyone wanting to read Ray's books on a Kindle (Paperwhite or otherwise) and have the money go to Ray Peat :). Here is a list of available eBooks, sizes and prices:

Books by Raymond Peat, PhD Five Titles Available Digitally – PDF Format

1. Mind and Tissue: Russian Research Perspectives on the Human Brain 2,112 KB $5
2. Nutrition for Women 1,638 KB $5
3. Generative Energy: Restoring the Wholeness of Life 1,392 KB $5
4. Progesterone in Orthomolecular Medicine 727 KB $4
5. From PMS to Menopause: Female Hormones in Context 1,795 KB $6
If you have a PayPal account you can send payment to: raypeatsnewsletter@gmail.com and note which book(s) you want. After they receive the payment, they’ll email the copy to you. If you don’t have an account with PayPal they’ll send a link.

Yes, the books are available for free from places like the Internet Archive, but this way RP reaps the benefits for his work.

Then follow the directions here: How to convert a PDF file for your Kindle to convert to a document that allows you change the font, etc. on your Kindle to read more easily. Works like a charm!

Thanks for your comprehensive reply. Excellent value!
Hopefully I'll be spending the rest of winter reading the physical books.

@livesimply this is also an excellent resource for the ebook lovers.

Ray's work is certainly a gift that keeps giving, so some monetary support toward that ought to contribute to our overall generative energy as a whole :)
