    The End of Overeatinguncovers the shocking facts about how we lost control over our eating habits - and how we can get it back. Dr. Kessler presents groundbreaking research, along with what is sure to be a controversial view inside the industry that continues to feed a nation of overeaters - from popular brand manufacturers to advertisers, chain restaurants, and fast-food franchises.

    Deidre says: "The best 'NON-DIET" diet book out there..."
    "Ocassionally Insightful, but Mostly Dull"
    Overall

    The author really could do a lot to make it more relevant to everyone. Instead of putting application at the end, he should have a bit of it at the end of each chapter.

    From everyday stress to severe trauma, many obstacles to a full life can be overcome by developing what Dr. Daniel J. Siegel calls "mindsight," our ability to perceive the mind and literally redirect the flow of energy and information within our brains. Through this powerful capacity for insight and empathy, we can "rewire" crucial connections, create dynamic linkages, and open ourselves to relationships in a new way.

    Story

    Horribly boring and long. If I wanted to be bored to death, I would have brought my father-in-law along.

    This sweet and funny tale of a preppy editor buying a Brooklyn deli with his Korean in-laws is about family, culture clash, and the quest for authentic experiences. It starts with a gift. When Ben Ryder Howe’s wife, the daughter of Korean immigrants, decides to repay her parents’ self-sacrifice by buying them a store, Howe, an editor at the rarefied Paris Review, agrees to go along.

    lesley says: "Absolutely delightful!"
    "Sometimes Hilarious, Other Times Boring"
    Overall

    The book could use some good editing because the author rambles occasionally.

    I think that he misses out on what could be some very insightful commentary on Asian culture.
