I agree with Publisher's Weekly. This bio/business book by Lisa Rogak on Atkins the diet doc, is not sure what it wants to be when it grows up (a measly 224 pages of text in big print.) Part trashy/dishy tabloid reporterage, part chronicle of the diet trends surrounding the Good Doctor, it also contains agGrandizement for the Grand Old Party (Republicans - p.95 - proselytizing a view not universally shared.)

Rogak's credibility is questionable. "Facts"" weren't checked. For instance: "And QVC, the cable shopping network, offers a `Low-Carb Hour` several times each week." Lisa, Lisa. Maybe you should have at least consulted a Program Guide? Sometimes, she `ain't got no' sense of syntax, as in: "Normally, the law prohibits medical examiners from releasing these records to no one..."

And worst of all: THERE ARE NO PICTURES!
Better: The recent Atkins Biography on A&E TV.

Only so-so. I like his diet concepts better than his Bio.

Interesting to note (through reading of multiple sources) that Atkins didn't really fully grasp the true extent of the core concept of LC, that being that LC (while obviously emphasizing very LOW carbs) but that the next emphasis had to be on HIGH fat (good fats like animal fats, dairy fats, and tropical oils)... And not higher protein with moderate fat.

See the next huge evolutionary leap in LC dieting in the books "Low Carb High Fat Diet Revolution" and "Eat Bacon, Don't Jog".

Apparently the reviewer from PW read a different book from the one Lisa Rogak wrote.... Her book on Atkins was funny, juicy,informative... and really a tribute to the man who was so ahead of his time. I loved the different faces of Atkins revealed, the surprising and sometimes a little shocking facets of the man's personality. Also, revealing the fact that Atkins was a proponent of alternative medicine left me wanting to know more. Atkins was a risk taker, a man who dared to be different. Rogak gives us all the personal tidbits that existed behind the public persona who was that man. I love the diet... and I love Rogak's book!
