His plan sounds perfect for anyone who has no sense of taste and no social exposure to food. He offers no solutions for the real world. He gives a good explanation of each type of weight loss surgery (which you could find for yourself on the internet) and he lays out an impossible meal plan that absolutely no human with taste buds could follow.
Part of that included purchasing Dr. Wiener's first book, "A Pound of Cure", which gives a very logical and easy to follow method for weight loss without surgery relying primarily on healthy eating. It's a step by step approach that encourages you to change one aspect of your diet/life at a time and I found that worked fantastically for me pre-op, it helped me change a lot of bad behaviors that helped me become morbidly obese.
This book doesn't necessarily go beyond the first book, but is rather companion reading. He elaborates on some of his earlier points as well as going more in-depth for the two primary surgeries out there for weight loss, the gastric bypass and the vertical sleeve.
I will say that there was a lot of info that I was already aware of. However, I'm not your normal bariatric patient; most of the people that I interact with in my Facebook groups or in person haven't done nearly the amount of research that I have. It is for these individuals, as well as anyone who is considering one of these surgeries, that this book would be of the most use for.
