Best of all: it's practical and accurate.
On page after page, Kirchhoff explains human nature and how behavior change works. You will find many nuggets that will enhance your life.
As a behavior psychologist who teaches at Stanford University, I get frustrated when authors perpetuate myths about human behavior. But Kirchhoff gets it right. And that's why I like this book.
David Kirchhoff is a very personable writer, with a great sense of humor, and the ability to laugh at himself. He affirms the idea that we must never become discouraged by momentary setbacks, that the road to weight loss is bumpy, but we can walk through it if we maintain our focus and sense of direction. I would recommend it to both members and non-members. It gives a very comprehensible description of how the program functions, but adds helpful advice from the experience of the author, as well as a diverse assortment of Weight Watchers. I have been recommending it to my friends who would like to lose weight, but don't know where to begin.
WOW! This is a MAN and his point of view, #1. He honestly and courageously tells it like it is, #2. He is NOT pitching WW, #3. He simply expresses the human-ness in the struggle to lose weight and maintain a healthy lifestyle. And as travelling is an integral part of his life, he can attest to the difficulty and successful management of eating healthfully in some of the most challenging situations.
I think if I had to recommend only one point of view on our human dilemma, I would go to Weight Loss Boss. I intend to re-read this book! Barbara
