Given his academic background, I was worried this might be too "dense" a read. Not so, it was a nice blend of science and anecdote, very entertaining and thought provoking. A must read for those that have struggled with weight and weight related health issues. His solutions for ending the cycle are not exactly revalatory. He does present compelling information to explain the explosion of weight gain in the US. I knew it was high fructose corn syrup!!
