I really enjoyed reading this autobiographical story of Jean Nidetch and Weight Watchers, which she founded in the 1960s. The author has a delightfully witty voice and quite happily discusses life as a "formerly fat housewife." It's definitely dated (written in the early seventies) but fun to read nonetheless. It's also interesting for its insights to the early Weight Watchers program--almost unrecognizable to those of us who have joined in the 21st century. Yet there are certain features that remain, features Jean introduced in her earliest meetings.
