Predictable and long-winded
I have read books like this before. The advice may be sound, and to a large extent I agree with it, but it is very repetitive, as though saying something often makes it more true. How about a concise presentation of the research, without jargon, and an easy-to-find plan to follow?
Having lost 50 lbs. before I read this, I was looking for something to kick-start the next phase, and this IS proving somewhat successful, so I can forgive some of the boring repetition. But essentially this is nothing new - just rephrased.
