Read in October, 2010

This was a pleasant surprise. Despite some good reviews, my expectations were low. Ugel is much darker and more self-critical than I anticipated. He's brutally honest about his food issues and his failures and relapses; as the book starts, he's really in terrible health and very unhappy and uncomfortable. Despite the gimmicky subtitle (Losing 50 pounds in 50 Weeks), the doing-something-over-a-year theme isn't really there, which is good. He's darkly funny in a style I appreciated. A quick and easy read, but not nearly as light as one might think.
