I was more interested in the "why we get fat" part of the title than the "what to do about it" part, and learning about some of the different theories that fell out of favor for various reasons but still seem viable was fascinating. The tone in some sections seemed a bit condescending, but it didn't really bother me because he provided information about research that supported his assertions, so it wasn't like he was telling the reader to just trust him and believe. After reading reviews for this book, it does seem like I actually might enjoy his earlier work more because I'm interested in all the details and the history of the research.
