I'm not gonna lie - this book was witty as shit. Did I think a lot of it was a stretch? Yes. However, there are still a lot of takeaways you can get from this book. Eat with friends, go on walks, appreciate nature, wait to eat in the morning, slice your bread thin, sugar in moderation, etc. Between Jane Austen's novels and personal life; the author tied together healthy lifestyle habits that are still relevant today. Amusing and intriguing, but it won't exactly spur you to go out and lose 30 pounds the Jane Austen way.
