Having made the decision to have bariatric surgery and listened to the medical staff's description of the process, I decided to check it out on my own. I sat down in my local Barnes and Noble and read about 1/3 of it immediately. I took it to my next educational session and shared it with the group and the Dr immediately put it on his recommended reading list. I felt completely at ease with my decision for surgery and felt super prepared for what would be happening. I would highly recommend this book. Even though the author is somewhat of a public figure, he told it like it is without patting himself on the back.

I am nearly 8 years out from having weight loss surgery and my journey would have been far easier with this book. Dr. Davis truly covers everything...from how obesity is a disease to the different types of surgery to what you need at the hospital. Most importantly he covers the fact that the surgery alone does not make a successful outcome. There is a great section on "negotiating pitfalls" that is particularly helpful. After being involved in this community for so long I have learned so much about what makes or breaks us and Dr. Davis knows his stuff.

Dr. Davis' book was very easy to read with a lot of background information. I am having WLS later this year and this book, coupled with advice from my Dr., have cleared my mind of any questions or concerns I had. I have recommended this book to several people.
