More About the Author
Bob for several years earlier in his writing career wrote a health advice column under the name "Dr. Oui" for Oui magazine (back when Hefner owned it, he is quick to add). He has also written extensively for Penthouse, and for Playboy, for whom he wrote the annual "Celebrity Christmas Carols" parodies.
In between his writing activities he put in a stint as a San Francisco-area stand-up comic.
During his college days at the University of California, Berkeley, Bob was editor of the legendary college humor magazine the California Pelican.
These days he concentrates on topical and political humor, as well as op-ed opinion pieces for the San Francisco Chronicle.
Bob works out of his home office in El Cerrito, California. In his spare time he maintains his blog, "Humor Me II," the successor to "Humor Me."
Bob's latest book is "115 Reasons Why It's Not Your Fault If You're Fat."
"Get ready for the sugar wars" - An opinion piece by Robert S. Wieder in the San Francisco Chronicle (August 10, 2012): http://www.sfgate.com/opinion/article/Get-ready-for-the-sugar-wars-3779436.php

~The Rebecca Review
-- Jimmy Moore, health blogger/podcaster "Livin' La Vida Low-Carb" [...]
The book is humorously divided into major cause categories: It's Your Mom's Fault, It's Biology's Fault, It's Your Family's Fault, It's Your School System's Fault, It's Your Location's Fault, It's Other Fat People's Fault, It's Society's Fault, It's Your Lifestyle's Fault, It's Your Job's Fault, It's the Auto Industry's Fault, It's the Chemical Industry's Fault, It's the Food and Beverage Industries' Fault, It's Electronic Technology's Fault, It's the Ad Industry's Fault, It's Capitalism's Fault, It's the Government's Fault, It's God's Fault, It's the Fault of Demographics, It's Your Environment's Fault, It's the Fault of People Who "Just Want to Help" You, and When No Other Explanation Seems to Apply to Your Situation ... The science, sociology, mechanics and demographics of these topics have been carefully researched; the author uses no guesswork of his own. There's an incredible bibliography at the back of the book.
Each category is divided into smaller snippets of easily digestible information. The book is well-written, fun, spelled correctly, and grammatically perfect.
All I can say is that in a culture where people love to take less and less responsibility for their actions and situations, this book is perfectly timed for the obese fault-finder.
In the interest of full disclosure, I am a reviewer for the website [...] and was given a free copy of this book for review purposes. I am completely unaffiliated with either the author or the publisher.
