This book, written by a Cartesian, is a treatise on how to lose weight. He provides a recipe for muffins – a strict regime of one large muffin or two small ones per day plus jogging will do it.
Why do we care about losing weight? It’s the division of mind body, the mind body split – the mind tends to loathe an excess of flesh. Not me!
Richard Watson wrote this book when it was still fashionable to believe that oat-bran would save the world, i.e. human kind. Since then that theory has bit the dust and the price of oat bran has come down.
