A quirky read! Entertaining, lots of swearing. I wish the editor had made him end the book with his weight loss and maybe the recipes. I could have done without his theories about, um, interpersonal relations.

You get to find out how Penn lost all that weight; also a bunch of other anecdotes and private stories. I loved it, I found myself laughing out loud a lot while reading. He does cuss a lot for no reason sometimes but he is a high energy guy, so i guess that is why.

An off-beat but entertaining look at one man's way to take off a lot of weight.

I can't say that I could follow the all-potato diet that Penn uses in the beginning of his weight loss quest but I enjoyed his journey.

Be aware that he uses the f-word very frequently including to describe his former overweight self as a fat f%$k quite often in the book.
