The star of WALL-E and the costar of Curb Your Enthusiasm writes about his revelation that he's too fat. After WALL-E comes out in theaters, Garlin realizes that he consumes too much (as the environmental message of the movie hits home) - at the same time, he also realizes that he's addicted to food. The book follows his struggles to control his eating and to reduce his carbon footprint. It's funny and dark, while also obviously written by someone who is not a professional author. The diary format occassionally feels lazy, but it also is an effective means of sharing the day-to-day struggle of addiction.
