I am glad I bought the book, as some of the others have responded, too... because of the up front bits about the history, and the motivational material. While I've read similar things before, working through this and re-thinking things has been worthwhile.
If you want a more blow-by-blow reaction to the first few chapters, I have entries in my blog covering the first five. I am currently working on Chapter six and hit a wall. That's the beginning of the 28-day program, and I'm not convinced I'm ready to do that just yet, since I am close to goal and entering maintenance. To me it was kind of bad timing, as it felt like adding more to a plate already filled.
But I am starting to read about it, and intend to get back to it when I need a boost to keep me going.
Defeat is temporary: giving up makes it permanent! Never give up!
