"A weight-loss tool kit. . . . The entire package is a practical, down-to-earth guide that should help overweight, out-of-shape Americans (two thirds of the U.S. population) take action. An easy-to-read how-to book, it invites active participation. . . . there is much here of value."
"Bob Greene, best known as Oprah’s personal trainer, helps readers lose weight and shows them how to stay motivated to keep it off. Too often, it’s this latter part—“the psychological side of weight loss”—that’s ignored, even though it’s typically the mental and emotional components that determine how long weight loss lasts. Greene is determined to change this, helping readers take a deeper look at themselves and their relationship with food. . . .More than a book about weight loss, The Life You Want is a treatise on deciding what’s important in life, setting goals and achieving them—lessons that can benefit almost everyone."
