Dr. Frank Merritt published “The 17 Hour Fast,” his first book on nutrition and health. According to the book’s description, “’The 17 Hour Fast’ is founded on a bedrock of cutting-edge scientific data …” 

Merritt—a Pepperdine summer undergraduate research sponsor and former summer student—included Malibu native Jesse Billauer (a world champion quadriplegic surfer) as a contributor to the book.
