Publishers Weekly, 1987-12-18 Weight Watchers introduces a calorie-cutting cookbook that will tempt nondieters as well. A few recipes aim specifically at calorie counters, notably apple crisp with a graham-cracker topping and an egg cream prepared with diet chocolate soda. However, these adapted recipes are far outnumbered by savory dishes with much broader appeal, such as sliced steak with Gorgonzola sauce, bourbon chicken, crabmeat-stuffed flounder, wild-rice soup and sausage bread. Nondieters can take obvious liberties with the instructions, serving real maple syrup with blueberry-cornmeal pancakes or ignoring instructions that only two lemon-cream cheese cookies constitute a portion. The recipes fit into eight weeks of full-day menus designed to work with the new Quick Success program. Each day uses from one to four of the recipes in the book. Supporting text offers fast-fix and other cooking hints, but does not describe the plan on which these menus are based. Consequently, dieters may wish to seek additional information.

Publishers Weekly, 1987-09-25 This true crime tale presents a stinging indictment of the judicial system at its worst, freeing a killer to kill again. Tannenbaum (No Lesser Plea, Badge of the Assassin) and Greenberg, a syndicated columnist and TV producer, examine Charles Yukl's childhood: son of musical parents, he had an icy, perfectionist mother determined to make him a great pianist and a distant, uncommunicative father. He grew up to become a maladjusted loner who hated women. And when, working on the fringes of show business in Manhattan, in 1966 he murdered one of his pupils, Suzanna Reynolds, he was given a light sentence and served only five years. He went back to the entertainment world and repeated the pattern, killing another pupil in 1974, Karen Schlegal. Convicted and eligible for parole in 1989, Yukl hanged himself in a prison hospital in 1982. (October 29) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved
