This Is Big: How the Founder of Weight Watchers Changed the World—and Me

We rated this book:


Weight is a subjective and controversial topic, but if it weren’t for leaders like Jean Nidetch, we all might be a lot worse off. In Marisa Meltzer’s This is Big, the history of Weight Watchers comes to light. The book is part biography of Nidetch, part weight loss journey of Meltzer. The chapters about Nidetch are fascinating to readers, full of facts about her life growing up and becoming established with Weight Watchers, as well as facts about other influential things that happened during those respective years. The people, situations, and items that we still know and love are fun to read about and discover when they made their appearances.

The chapters about Meltzer are equally as important, but more so for people needing reassurance about the struggles of weight loss as told by a person living in today’s world. Meltzer writes of her experiences regarding weight loss: her successes and failures. Overall, this is an informative book about two highly successful ladies who started their lives fat and thought they had no hope, but one of whom figured out a key to success she decided to share with the world.
