I give this a "meh" but only because I was looking for a detailed story of his struggle with weight loss and the extreme post-surgery complications he endured.

The book is a full life memoir, with only 3 or 4 chapters focusing on his surgery & complications. If I were more a fan of BigBoy, I probably would have been more interested in the entire content of the book.
