On publication, the book shot into the headlines after it was condemned by a leading Scottish nutritionist as an example of the worst of a Scottish diet: a caricature of absolutely the worst things you could possibly put in your mouth . Professor Mike Lean (head of Glasgow University s Human Nutrition department) then recommended the book be sold with a discount off a headstone. The media jumped on the story headlines from the BBC, STV, The Sunday Times, Daily Mail, and The Guardian caught the attention of Sky News, and CNN in the USA, who loved the poor Scottish diet angle. The publicity helped the book become a bestseller.
