    You can learn more from the web or a Free Seminar

    You can gain more by going to a free weight loss seminar at your local hospital or doctors office. After having the Lap Band Surgery myself, I was hoping for information on living with the lap band. The book repeats itself many times, often with in a few pages. Don't waste your money on this and go buy a tank of gas and go to a free seminar near you!

    Don't waste your money!

    This book is almost identical to another book that is a waste of money -LapBand Surgery: Is LapBand Surgery Right For You? by Jarod Scott. They look like different books before you purchase, but after you look at them both it is easy to see that most of one is copied from the other. Even the MANY spelling and grammar mistakes are identical. You can learn just as much, if not more, by attending a free seminar put on by a bariatric surgeon.
