Read in January, 2012

This book spoke to me in so many ways. The only reason I didn't give it five stars is because I thought the author got a little too wordy in some places, and repeated himself more often than I thought necessary, though I know he did so in an effort to make sure he was getting his point across.

Should be an interesting read. The author says that "...the war against fat is both scientifically baseless and socially destructive" and that we would be much healthier to focus on a moderate level of fitness and to quit dieting.
