Stephen King is the author of more than fifty books, all of them worldwide . I had seen the movie before I read the book so going in I thought I knew what to expect.

Stephen King is the author of more than fifty books, all of them worldwide bestsellers. His acclaimed nonfiction book, On Writing, is also a bestseller. If you have never read the Shining, please give yourself a gift and read it if you enjoy horror. And if you haven't read it this century, try it again, as it may very well scare you in new ways.

What distinguishes Jane King's Trick Yourself Thin from other diet books is her voice. It's direct and funny and lacks the typically didactic, clinical and often condescending tone of the vast slew of other diet books out there. Her viewpoint, too, is unique. As she sets out in the book: A. You can continue to eat a lot and still not get fat.B. There are three simple, but profound, reasons why people gain weight, so that, when you lose it, you will always gain it back unless you understand and cope with the reasons you gained it in the first place. C. The book is very funny. 1) What's the principal idea? Let's face it. People often eat for reasons besides sating their hunger. This book doesn't demand that you stop, it shows you how to get away with doing just that, still enjoy food . . . and do it without gaining weight.2) Who's the audience? This is a book for regular people. Written not by a fitness expert, but by a woman who has been overweight sometimes, thin sometimes, but mostly in-between. She's not perfect, she's not aiming for perfect, she's aiming for not-quite-perfect, all the while still indulging in the deeply, deeply, totally satisfying pleasure of eating. 3) Who else will love this book? People who don't really want to be preached to, people not into rules or a regimen. The book describes how each person customizes their diet to suit themselves. It's about exploring who you are, what works and doesn't work for you. 4) What's the book not about? It's not about getting to some perfect weight. If you don't get it right one day, no big deal. Tomorrow is tomorrow. Every day you start again and do what you can that day. 5) What else is great about this book? It's filled with lots of real-life stories of dieting scenarios that people can relate to.

Dear Jane King,

You are the Goddess of diet vets...trust me...I am YOU and YOU are ME and I am just amazed that someone out there understands the yo yo syndrome of trying to lose and gain the last 10, 20, 30 or even 100 pounds (over and over and over again)! The weird thing about this book is that not only does the author touch on every diet I have tried but her basic foundation includes all the diets I include in my foundation which are a bit of "Eat Right 4 Your Blood Type", Harvey and Marilyn Diamonds, "Fit for Life" and the idea of drinking just hot water - just to name a few. The biggest, coolest and best piece of all is that Jane puts a lot of attention on loving and appreciating ourselves in all of our many stages of achieving our weight loss goals. I actually felt okay about even my diet failures as a result of reading this book - so I'm just going to keep reading it - WHILE I EAT!

Oh wait! The part about looking at your hunger and not being afraid of it has lodged inside my brain like a little gem of an idea and dissipated that particular monster in a way I never thought possible.

Can you tell I'm excited about this book! I am.

Thanks Jane!

I am a slender man with little desire to overeat and it was purely by accident that I picked this book up at my sister-in-law's house. I started idly reading and soon I was hooked. Jane King is a gifted writer and I don't know when I've laughed so hard. Maybe P.G. Wodehouse. Little did I ever suspect I would find his rival in a diet book author?

I recommend this book to everyone. Oh, and by the way, I now view my "roundish" friends with far more compassion. Jane makes them actually look kind of smart for carrying a bit extra avoirdupois.

Recently, a dear friend of mine bamboozled me into going to some party for a diet book. If you're anything like me, i.e.; lazy and irreverent, such a thing would fill you with disdain or, at best, indifference. Images of a girl in Juicy couture sweatpants with an overenthusiastic world-view and highlights would dance in your head and you might have to resort to that ever-successful food poisoning excuse.

Yet, bamboozled I was, drawn to the lure of the free wine and fancy cheese.

We walked in and there she was in all her glory: Jane King. Guess what. She wasn't anything that I'd expected. She was less, well...tan.

She was, in fact, much like many of my friends back at Bryn Mawr; poised, intelligent, droll and with just the right amount of irreverence for all hierarchical structures, consumer fetishism and social decorum.

I immediately liked her.

I, also, made a point to try to get in her good graces by drinking just enough wine to hit the balance between brilliantly witty and drunk.

(This is an ongoing experiment which doesn't always pan out...see back-dated catalogue of images of me getting dragged out of Soho House with platforms at a 45 degree angle to the sidewalk. In my defense, those cork platforms were high enough to have an entire airbrushed seascape on them. But I digress...)

The thing that I took with me, other than the free wine and snooty cheese (which I don't really count as taking with me, seeing that these things were in my stomach. However, this is a matter up for debate and I'd be interested to hear your thoughts on the issue.) Okay, so, the thing that I took with me was a signed green diet book entitled TRICK YOURSELF THIN.

To be honest, I was dreading reading it. I liked Jane King so much, an unusual phenomenon for naturally misanthropic me, that I was fearful the spell would be broken if I hated her book.

Alas! Alack! I had nothing to fear! Upon reading this book I felt a sense of relief I still cannot quite put words to...something between "Wow, I guess maybe I'm not the only inexplicably odd weirdo in the universe who still likes to wear weird clothes, go out and socialize." and "Oh my god! Amen! Praise the lord! I am not alone!"

Here's the thing: This book isn't just about dieting. It's kind of about existing in the universe. There are helpful hints about dieting, which, by the by, work like a charm, but it's more of a handbook about how to not hate yourself and be mean to yourself.

If you're anything like me, i.e., a spiraling vortex of destruction and narcissism, you may have possibly mayhap potentially picked up some bad habits, including eating weird, horrible food as a way to quench your inner demons and forget about the path of devastation you seem to have left behind you. Well, never fear, womankind, this book is actually a smart, witty guide to checking in on yourself and thwarting any and all of those bad, dumpy food habits that we all secretly have when no one is looking.

Now comes the "proof is in the pudding" part:

I know this book works because I have always fluctuated ten pounds either way from, say, super-hot-sexy to um-yeah-maybe-I should-get-a-cat. Ever since reading this book, I have completely avoided the cat-potential state. That's the honest to Betsy truth.

There's something about TRICK YOURSELF THIN that works because you don't get the feeling that the writer is wearing coral. It's as if a voice rings out of the darkness, saying, "The entire world hasn't gone to hell in a hand-basket. You are not alone!"

Do yourself, your body and your mind a favor and get this book, I guarantee it will make a difference. And by guarantee, I mean that I am in no way to be held accountable for your actions. Are you kidding me, I can barely afford sushi.

In her latest book, Trick Yourself Thin, Jane King turns her insightful observational skills to our continuing American fixation: how to stay thin and look sharp without undue suffering and self-hatred. Through years of experience, investigation, and experimentation, Jane has devised dozens of helpful hints that keep both the eternal search for weight loss and personal worth in clever perspective. Part how-to book, part autobiography, part morale booster, Jane delights the reader with her breezily honest style, amusing illustrations, and entertaining anecdotes from her life and the lives of her friends. With post-modern candor, Jane lays her cards on the table: Obsessed about food/eating/weight gain/loss? Yep. Obsessed about being obsessed? No way. The book is designed so that the reader can dip in and out of the suggestions, adding one or two solid ideas a day to our kit bag of poundage survival tips. Let's face it: we need all the hints we can get. Jane King shows us how to carry on the struggle while still enjoying the pleasures of life, love, and, above all!, food. Highly recommended.
