I'll Have What She's Having: My Adventures in Celebrity Dieting

by Rebecca Harrington

Harrington isn't just spoofing stunt journalism in this short, yet humorous book; she is also spoofing celebrities and their kooky so-called diets.

Anyway, Harrington tries all kinds of weird celeb diets, including those of obvious choices--Gwyneth Paltrow and Victoria "Posh Spice" Beckham. But she also follows the eating regimes of other stars: Karl Lagerfeld, Greta Garbo, and even Elizabeth Taylor.

Of course, in all cases, hilarity ensues. And even a little weight is lost sometimes.

I'm not sure who the target audience is for this book, since it makes fun of dieting and people who follow celebrity diets. Kind of a niche audience, don't you think?
