At the end of the book Garlin suggests that people with similar disorders need an impetus and "My Footprint" is his contribution. That's a noble thought but his book doesn't reflect much of that impetus as largely he seems to continue down the same path of failure. Mostly a narrative with a diary bent, Garlin's book neither picks up much steam along the way nor goes anywhere. He's always suffering. We hear that at the beginning and at the end. It's a loop of angst.
There is a side view of his wanting to be "green" and all the steps he takes to make his own home more liveable to that effect, but that distracts the reader from the author's own weight loss desire. It has almost no bearing on his theme of getting in better shape.
A chapter on his visit to a Pritkin Longevity Center in Miami was the best of the book, but uncharacteristic of the other chapters. I hadn't heard of Jeff Garlin before reading his book but saw him on a tv promotional segment. I guess if you're a fan of his you might connect with "My Footprint" but I found it lacking in much humor for which he seems to be so noted and not very forceful in how to solve those problems which he encounters.
