Yes we've probably seen Charlie Walduck on the telly but this book should be placed on the Department of Education's official reading list or syllabus for schools, so people can learn from it as well as feel better about themselves. Yes, I am being serious!
And does the author feel sorry for himself, is he all 'woe is me' or is he even trying to tell us how brilliant he is? No, he tells it how it is, and he definitely likes to take the p...Mickey out of himself too!
Highly recommended, a truly moving and feelgood book which is completely honest and insightful.
This is an Open and frank Autobiography, that is so easy to read, as if you are reading your own written word,
Charlie explains at every stage of the book, what he was thinking and how he reacted to certain events in his life...
PRODUCER ALERT, I can see this being made into a film...... I really can,
What surprized me, was how so many things Charlie has wrote down, one could say..."Those are my words" and "How come he thought the same things that I was thinking" he explains how so many things effect someones life, even down to furniture!
The book has 16 pages of Photographs, and as they say "A picture say's a Thousand Words" they certainly do,
Charlie's book also contains a WHOLE YEAR Diary, which is an absolutely crucial part of the book, how many can say they have seen a "4 week diet" where you are "meant" to lose a stone in weight guaranteed....Yes lost the Stone, and that's that, Then said to yourself "that was jolly hard work, and I'm not doing it ever again" but to appreciate the stamina of this guy, to keep on week, after week, after week and lose 20st in a year, is MORE than "Inspiring" it is pretty well AMAZING!
I can fully agree with a previous reviewer, that this book makes you want to buy a a dozen, and hand them out to the people who's paths we cross, who are so down, who think they are "beyond help" I want to hand them this book as one would hand out a lifesavers float to a drowning individual....
Well done Charlie, this book is Amazing...
As someone who was also morbidly obese - I reached 22.5 stone I also took action to lose well over 10 stone and also wrote my own weight loss story - 'Fat to Fantastic'.
Books by big losers are highly motivational and reading the struggle Charlie went through to rethink his eating and to begin to exercise was truly uplifting. He has run several marathons, and become a new person. But we never lose the old us, and he hints at the dark period, and putting weight back on.
When we lose huge amounts of weight we are carried along by all the positive good will, but once we reach our goal no one cheers us to stay at our target weight, but this is an even bigger challenge.
As you read this book it really feels as if Charlie is there with you, telling his story. A really inspiring tale and puts most peoples troubles into perspective. I wish Charlie well at maintaining a healthy life
