When he was born he weighed sixty pounds. His first words were "Seconds, please." In kindergarten, he took his nap on a braided nine-by-twelve. Or so claims comedian Louie Anderson, author if the bestselling "Dear Dad".

Yes, he's hilarious. Yes, I liked his first book. This one? nope. Waste of words, paper and my time. Overview of time spent trying to lose weight, analyze his past and move on with his life. Compares himself to a baby elephant in a side story.
