From Library Journal:

Actress Taylor talks openly about her well-publicized weight gain of several years agohow she went from famous and glamorous to famous and fatand how she lost weight (and an alcohol problem) while gaining the self-esteem necessary to dieting and weight maintenance. The first, biographical, part of the book explains how she gained the weight; the second partperhaps the most valuable for the dieting readeris filled with advice on gearing up mentally for a long-term, successful diet. This book is extremely positive; all the advice makes absolute sense. The remainder of the book includes her diet plan, recipes, and exercise advice. Readable, instructive, and sure to be popular.
