"Kolata lays out the case against the nation's multibillion-dollar weight-loss industry with compelling clarity." --The New York Sun"An incisive, thought-provoking examination of a subject that concerns us all. This book will educate and illuminate those seeking solid information about the struggle to lose weight." --Jerome Groopman, M.D., author of How Doctors Think"[Kolata] questions the current chest-beating in this sobering examination of why diets fail." --People (four stars, critic's choice)"[Kolata] punctuates her eight chapters with the voices of a cluster of dieters, [and] their stories add human consequence to the universal findings." --The Plain Dealer (Cleveland)"A first-rate author . . . Readers who care about the searing obesity debate will want to read this book." --Houston Chronicle"[Kolata's] report reveals well-documented intelligence certain to annoy those segments of society and commerce that stubbornly cling to the ignis fatuus that all one needs to be thin is willpower." --Booklist"This book will make you think differently about obesity and perhaps make the obese think more realistically about themselves." --The Arizona Republic
