I was so looking forward to this story, but have been quite disappointed. The author goes off on so many tangents which ultimately don't add to the story. It feels like he had enough material for a really great investigative piece in a magazine or newspaper, but padded it out to book length. Also, the author's biases, while natural,are all too evident and therefore, distracting. Just okay.

If you could sum up Sweet and Low in three words, what would they be?
Any additional comments?
This book presents a smart, clear-eyed look at the complex dynamics surrounding family, food and money. It's also an interesting historical look at Brooklyn, 20th century Jews, and the evolution of the dieting industry. I liked the passion that the author put into reading his story.
