I really like Bob Harper on tv and now even like him more on the pages of a book. Bob really gets down to the nity grity and applies basic principles that even the most seasoned dieter can benefit from.

I like Harpers approach a lot. He gives rules that are not necessarily burdensome, it just takes commitment.

Very readable, practical tips. Funny. Makes his opinion very clear.

Easy to follow rules. Easy to read.

While it does offer useful advice, I think it's more of an article with a clip and save list than a full on book.
