I love Kirstie and was actually surprised to find out that she had written a book. It's a comical take on her life and the reasons for her lack of will power with her weight. Sometimes this book surprised me with the harsh, lewd comments, but it definitely let Kirstie's personality come through. It definitely is NOT a "How to lose weight" book, but more of an autobiography on her struggles with weight. It's a quick read and very enjoyable.

Neither memoir nor humor nor diet book, this odd duck is a compilation of vignettes from Alley's childhood and musings about her weight, kids, and body image.

She has a very comical and raw style, does not shy away from embarrassing details and graphic descriptions, and fills in the blanks on what you think you might know about her. If she wasn't so rich and famous, you would have the feeling you were having a hushed conversation at a sleepover with your slightly older, slightly slutty cousin who doesn't mind giving you EVERY detail of her last date. It's a quick read, warm and humorous with a sprinkling of scandal and groans and a little revenge, a good time. I definitely recommend it, and like the others reviewing it say, it is NOT a diet book, the theme of weight just is a constant throughout her adult life.

Kirstie is REAL here. From reading this book I know, I could hang out with her. She lets us in to her world and you can see her honesty. This is not going to change the world, but it is interesting to get to know her.

Good book if you're a Kirstie fan. Funny and sometimes lewd, she does have a unique sense of humor!

Funny. Quick read. Book was very random, but enjoyable. A definite book for Kirstie Alley fans.

Highly disappointed in this book. Filled with self loathing and she wants a pity party for all her wrong moves. Talks non-stop about her sex life, food life and does very little of owning up to her issues. Has an excuse for just about everything. Lay out of the book is weird. Parts are like reading from her diary and other feels fake or like she is holding back or hiding the rest of the story.
