There are a lot of things to love about The Thin Book.
The first is that it is, literally, a thin book. It is 108 pages of double spaced type. Personally, I believe most books, and most certainly those in the mental health field, are much too long. The Thin Book sets a great example of what is possible.
Another reason to love The Thin Book is the simplicity of its organization. It is a terrific book, and that, it seems, was Brickman's intention. He has given us fourteen chapters, each of which is a well-developed trance script addressing the subconscious meaning of a specific weight loss challenge. Some of these scripts, such as "Compulsive Eating as a Defense Against Anxiety," "Craving Fruit and Vegetables," or "Late Evening Eating," I might expect to see in a book for weight management.
To my delight, Brickman goes beyond the expected by offering scripts on, "Being Overweight as an Expression of Passivity and Hostility," "Slowing Down the Act of Eating," "Exercising," "Feeling Deprived After a Successful Effort," and "Lacking Resolve when Eating Away From Home."
The book is also unique in that the only writing Brickman presents other than the well-constructed and structured scripts is a 3-page preface. Here he describes himself as a "specialist in weight management." He states, "The scripts use positive suggestions or positive hypnosis in the form of metaphors, analogies, empathy and confrontation that contradict the effects of the unconscious mind." This description offers an accurate portrayal of his work, but understates the sensitivity and richness of his work.

The Thin Book is the first weight control book I EVER READ THAT MADE SENSE TO ME. The approach is spelled out so clearly and concisely that it was almost too good to be true. But my pants are all looser now and that's living proof that following the book's teachings were so helpful. I'm so excited with my progress.

Hal Brickman is to be commended for an easily digestible book, which transforms complex clinical issues around weight management into simple-to-follow steps. The steps identified encourage creative customization to meet specific individual needs, and would be equally beneficial to either the general public or practicing clinicians. This book makes an important contribution to maintaining/renewing one's wellbeing!

THE THIN BOOK has helped me sweep away my sloppy eating habits and replace them with order. Now I can taste my food. The chapter called, 'wloing down" helped me accompplish that feet. I used to eat on the run and run to eat. Now I eat more cognizant of the tedxture and tast of foods, even take more mites. I can finally tasted the various foods I have and derive a new pleassure and respect for the whole eating process and for my body. This is one very important book.

I can't sing any more praise for a weight-management anything than THE THIN BOOK. I re-read this book twice, and I never re-read books. This book goes right to your gut. It goes to your brain. And it saves your heart.

This I would have to say is a must read book for all of you out there who are denying one simple fact: Food isn't the culprit. How much you learn to use self-control and the self-esteem derived from it will govern the direction of your path. I got tired of going backwards all the time. This book has pointed me in the right direction. It points out that we should respect, celebrate food. WE should treat food as we would a good friend who we can count on. Well, I made friends with this book and I respect the author, Hal Brickman for writing a weight-management book that I have not seen the like of before. Instead of being preachy it's down-to-earth and uses words that people can understand. It uses ideas that make sense and are hard to forget, even though there is a little devil in me that sometimes says "go back." Go back and get that instant plesure from eating all I want when I want. But, I'm clearer about the consequences now. The book has taught me to slow down and think, breathe, imagine, plan, hesitate. That's all it takes to my amazement. Buying time. I see that now. By delaying that lunge to the wrong foods, I move closer to who I really am and how I really should look and care for my self. Wow! I'm so grateful.

This book has taught me how to balance how to eat. It is more about life-management than weight management. I feel THE THIN BOOK has helped me believe in myself-that I could create discipline in eating and for once in my life sustain it. I'm not sure how this book accomplished that because I'm a pretty stubborn man. But twenty three pounds lighter and a new bounce to my step it certainly has done for me what no diet, book or program has ever done. I never thought a book could change my life and my mind-set to such a great degree. I feel so proud. This is the lightest I've been in fifteen years. If I had a pipeline to the powers that be, I'd get this book into every book store possible so that those without computers can find it. It's just that- a find!
