This is a book I wrote years ago which was licensed by Random House U.K. The U.S. version sold under the title "Dieting and Other Weighty Issues." When the book came out, I was concerned that the placement of my name might lead some to believe the big-bottomed woman on the cover was me. (It's not, for the record. I wouldn't be caught dead in a yellow maillot. With my coloring, are you kidding me?) Years later, it turns out this illustration makes a highly motivational statement when taped to my refrigerator door.
The book is still in print in Great Britain (not here, unfortunately) but I've just discovered they have changed the cover to a less, er, motivational design. More's the pity, if you ask me.
