It is basically an advert for the author's website and book. If it wasn't for Kindle than this "product" would never have been offered for sale.
It really is terrible value for money. It is a shame as the StickK.com website is very good as is the book "carrot and stick" by the author.
The basic idea is precommitment . You tell people what you are going to do and then pay a forfeit if you don't achieve it. There is quite compelling evidence that it often works.
This article is well written and it doesn't really make any extravagant claims but it is pretty short and is more of an advertising pamphlet.

This book is an interesting statement on accountability, especially how it relates to weight loss and maintenance, and while at times it feels like a commercial for the stickk.com site and concept, who am I to argue. I think that stickk.com is a fantastic resource, and the book points out that the site accomplishes a sort of secondary task by encouraging you to give your goals try on your own, but commit to joining stickk.com if you fail on your own. This isn't a book on a diet plan (cheers for that), but makes the point that we all need to find our own way (what can you live with long term) and hold ourselves accountable. I do recommend this book, but $0.99 would be a more reasonable price point.
Pass on this one.
