When I first received a copy of Dr. Bridell’s Logical and Rational Poetic and Beautiful & Completely Guaranteed Diet for ALL Your Appetites, I had two reactions: 1) What a long title! 2) What a rip off! Twenty dollars seemed a lot to pay to learn how to consume half size meals—especially when I didn’t need to lose weight.

I’ve since eaten my words—well, half of them—I still think the title is longer than cooked spaghetti. But the overall antique effect of the cover is eye-catching and informative, so I’m sure it will grab attention.
