For a guy with so much personality on air, he's a very boring narrator. I heard his interview on NPR. He was natural, compelling, fun and easy to listen to. But he brings very little of his personality into the narration.
I also got tired of hearing about his cleanse, complete with references to his related bodily functions. His humor is fine in quick little segments on tv, but gets old quick in this book. He's trying too hard to be funny and it becomes painful.
The book is at it's best when he's talking about his struggles and people's reactions, but it's boring and off-putting when he starts lecturing.
The book needs editing. His story has moments we can all relate to and that's the part that is the most interesting. But when he starts doing nutrition 101 he doesn't know when to stop. He states the obvious so often and for so long that I kept finding myself fast forwarding.
