On Curb Your Enthusiasm, Jeff Garlin plays Larry David’s friend and manager, who doggedly sticks up for him and gets involved in his schemes, no matter how morally dubious they may be. My Footprint is perhaps Jeff’s best scheme yet.

 

Using his natural storytelling ability, Jeff documents his quest to live a more earth-friendly lifestyle and lose seventy-five pounds in intimate and hilarious detail. He exposes his innermost secrets and reveals his foibles—including his penchant for eating pudding and napping. A heavyset couch potato who daydreams about his next snack, Jeff dives in headfirst and begins meeting regularly with a personal trainer, a pilates instructor (who happens to be a former Solid Gold dancer), and using his Wii Fit. Jeff’s extraordinary undertaking yields highs and lows, struggles and triumphs—and many, many, laughs. Inspiring and entertaining, My Footprint is a comedic memoir that’s not to be missed.

    " Not sure why I decided to read this other than Jeff Garlin is funny, but I was surprised how good it was. "

    " You can hear Jeff Garlin's voice in this memoir, about his struggles with overeating, his path toward a greener life, and his health issues and love for his family. He is funny and warm and far from perfect. I think he's done a great job with this book and I appreciated the journey and even learned a few things. "

    " About how hard it is to change your habits. Some very funny bits. Lots of empathy. Overall discouraging. "

    " Jeff Garlin (Curb Your Enthusiasm, Wall-E), admitted compulsive overeater, uses his comedic skills to detail his struggles in reaching his goals of both living a healthy lifestyle and reduing his carbon footprint. Garlin does a great job of expressing the realities of life as a person with weight struggles and by likening his battles to those experienced by drug and alcohol addicts he illustrates that for many people, weight loss is far more than simply a matter of dropping a fork and getting off the couch. (There are many in my public health grad program who should be required to read this, as weight issues certainly require understanding and empathy.) Meanwhile, Garlin manages to share his attempts at "going green;" ultimately, the addiction America has to its lifestyle of comfort and energy consumption isn't all that different from an addiction to food. Along the way, Garlin shares some bigraphical information and "insider" stories from the set of "Curb," and many rcognizable celebs are in his anecdotes. An enjoyable fast read, I would recommend it to Garlin/"Curb" fans, those struggling with weight issues, anybody with an interest in environmentally sound living, and people in the health field. "
