This is such a good book, It normally takes me months to read but this only took me 4 days I couldn't put it down, it's humours as well as feeling sorry for him with his eating disorder he manages to deliver it in a serious but funny tone and had me laughing out loud as well as welling up at times with some of the stories. Excellent book can't recommend enough

3.0 out of 5 stars Goofy, Lite and fun. Kind of. 12 Mar. 2012
By Arel - Published on
Verified Purchase
I bought this book after hearing an interview on Dennis Miller's radio program. It was as I said, goofy, "lite". It does detail one man's struggles with coming up with the right strategies for himself to gain control over food. The story takes place some years ago and I thought from the radio interview that he seems to have conquered more territory than was described in the book. But I added it to my collection of weight loss books -although this is one that I wouldn't mind lending out-as often when people borrow books they don't return them. I deplore gratuitous foul language in lieu of having a thesaurus by one's side-or even in one's peripheral vision. Laziness doesn't inspire me.

I heard his interview on a radio station in Seattle with BJ Shay, I trusted BJ's reccomendation more than Jeff's interview so I wanted to check it out. There was no real point or conclusion to the story. It was by no means a diet book more about some struggles he has had turning down food, yet, no real concrete way that he dealth with it...?
2.0 out of 5 stars Not what I expected 25 Sept. 2011

It's more about his struggle with weight and weight loss, a bit about his attempt to be more eco-friendly and a whole lot Larry David worship. He's very funny on camera but not so much on paper.

3.0 out of 5 stars Lacks focus 4 Mar. 2010
By Jon Hunt - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
One has to have great empathy for Jeff Garlin's longtime struggle with his weight and health. It clearly defines his life, as he points out in his new book, "My Footprint". I wonder, however, exactly why this book was written.

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.

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed... 20 Mar. 2010
By Life Is Good - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
In search of finding a pearl of wisdom about losing weight through a celebrity's experience, I found one, although not the one I expected, since he actually doesn't resolve his issue: The major theme that comes through in this book, which is basically only a diary punctuated with a little stereotypical humor, is Jeff's love of his problem and his love of making it part of his identity--the pearl being that, in order to resolve an issue such as a weight problem, we need to remove it as part of our identity. Ultimately, Jeff's weight is just part of his shtik, and this book will be added to his curriculum vitae as an "author of several books" since there will no doubt be an update printed by a publisher looking to make a quick buck based on a celebrity's travails--especially if he actually loses the weight. Don't waste your time or money on this fluff.
