)-- The Diet Joke: A Reprogramming Guide for Perpetual Consumers by Lisa Pedace has been named a finalist for the 2010 Book of the Year Awards in the Self Help category by ForeWord Reviews. Filled with humor, sound advice and simple reprogramming activities, this entertaining guide encourages readers to avoid the quick-fix diet-of-the-day and focus on making permanent lifestyle choices.
Author Lisa Pedace said, “Everybody knows the first thing you lose when you go on a diet is your sense of humor, so I set out to write an entertaining book that would help people keep their sense of humor intact and lose weight too. It’s great to be recognized.” The Diet Joke is a Dr. Laura Recommended Book, a Mom’s Choice Award Gold Recipient, and winner of the Next Generation Indie Book Award.
The Diet Joke is published by Big Shot Press and retails for $14.95. For more information, visit www.thedietjoke.com.
