If youve ever embarked on a diet and failed, you might feel alone in a world seemingly filled with happy, smiling, thin people on late-night infomercials.

If this paints your world, then this just might be the next book you need to read. The title says it all. Youll learn why your last diet failed you and find out exactly why it wont possibly help you on your next one. Its a humorous, semi-autobiographical commentary on weight loss and our cultures obsession with the topic. Youll laugh. Youll cry. Youll put it in your next garage sale.
