From Publishers' Weekly:

"When we want so badly to say 'no,' why do we continue to reach for food?" Thanks to Kessler, the elusive key to overindulgence is finally elucidated in this user-friendly guide to healthy eating that finds the food and advertising industries guilty for catalyzing an American "obsession" with food and "reward-eating." Narrated by Blair Hardman, the guide is a straightforward, moderately entertaining listen, as the modest delivery will appeal to a wide range of listeners. Hardman's voice is at once involved and genuine, refreshingly free of sanctimony, and ably sidesteps the monotony to which so many nonfiction audio books are particularly susceptible.

From Library Journal:

Verdict: A cogent analysis of the American obsession with food and Americans' propensity to overeat. Recommended for most public libraries. Background: Former FDA commissioner Kessler (Question of Intent) argues that Americans have been conditioned to overeat; food has become a particularly powerful taste reward-the author reveals how the food industry uses sugar, fat, and salt levels to increase palatability (and keep people eating more). The last part of the book contains a framework to escape "conditioned hypereating" with a food rehab program.-Dana Ladd, Community Health Education Ctr., Tompkins-McCaw Lib. for the Health Sciences, Virginia Commonwealth Univ.
