If you were only going to purchase one book related to WLS, THIS SHOULD BE IT!!
This book answers every question you need to know about weight loss surgery. It is fair to all the surgeries, even talking about the ones that aren't as popular or well known, such as the VBG and DS. It has great recipes that I can't wait to try after my surgery. There are chapters about how to use your tool correctly for the rest of your life... this book is a MUST HAVE for anyone considering any type of weight loss

Read it!

This book is a huge source of information. If you are considering weight loss surgery you will find the answers to your questions here! Recommended by my surgeon.
It is very useful, use it as a reference book!

I love this book..... It's been a decade since my surgery, but this was so helpful!!! I think anyone thinking of getting it should read this first though, life doesn't magically change just because you are smaller!!! So make sure that it isn't a choice based on looks!!! It should be a health option for people who can't lose weight and will die unless that happens. I wish I had done it through WW.
I'm sure I will pour over this book several more times. It includes recipes, questions to ask your surgeon, lists of foods to avoid, list of items to bring to the hospital...pretty much covers WLS from A to Z.

An essential book for anyone going through weight loss surgery. This will definitely be your go-to book through the entire process.
Easy to read book on Weight Loss surgery. Not too much detail but gives a good overview of options.
Really good overview of all the basics for anyone interested in weight loss surgery.
