Die(t) Trying, a new book by the psychologist, Kenneth Schwarz, Ph.D., is a character-driven form of weight loss self-help. The book is staged as a murder mystery in which the reader immerses herself in the psychological lives of women who have trouble losing weight.
Die(t) Trying tells the tale of overweight women who have been murdered and what it takes to solve the murders, recover the bodies, and give the victims their lives back. It delivers the kind of weight loss self-help that seeps its way into your psyche without you having to lift a finger.
Murders are committed and the victims live, only to be murdered again and again. As luck would have it, there is a crime-fighter who takes the murdered on a life-saving journey backward from the crime itself to the motive for the crime. The kind of justice handed out is what every overweight woman wishes she could have.
Kenneth Schwarz, Ph.D. is a psychologist and psychoanalyst who was the Founder and Director of Psychology at a large family medical practice, Assistant Clinical Professor of Educational Psychology at New York University, and an allied health staff member at a community hospital. He is still in private clinical practice after many years. This is his tenth book having to do with women and the psychology necessary for weight loss.
