Excellent and thorough!

This book is great! I only wish I had found it earlier in my journey. I am almost one year out from surgery and still learned a lot. Highly, highly recommend! Good luck to everyone on this amazing journey!

need a new updated book

It definitely has a lot of great information in it but needs to be updated to the current way of the bypass. Also hearing about bariatricpal.com 6 million times gets to be annoying.

Not engaging and puts me to sleep

Book has some good information but the format is just not right. It’s a little to dry, and sounds as scientific research which is just very difficult to follow. Very long Overview of each section, and a lot of information in the beginning which has nothing to do with the topic ( like other ways to loose weight). May be it’s better in book format where u can skip chapters, but in audio it’s very disappointing.

Unorganized

This book is unorganized. It is repetitive and constantly refers back to other chapters that offers very little information.
