He just recently lost a lot of weight quickly. It's only been a few months since he even started and he's already writing a book. Seems both presumptuous and like a money grab. For one thing, most people gain the weight back. For another, he didn't reinvent the wheel. Keep it off for awhile, stay healthy and then if you still need the hacky money grab, write it then, since what the world needs is another diet book based on one person's experience.

Where did he say he was writing a book?

On his podcast. He and all his pod cronies did a quick-loss program. It's all quite tiresome.

Isn't he like a gazillionaire? Maybe I'm thinking of someone else, but I thought I'd read that him and Teller pull in ungodly amounts of money from their Vegas show.

Gawd that sounds awful. Penn has a natural propensity to blowhardiness and few things are more blowhardy than a blowhard who's lost weight.

That is quite the collection. I'm calling bullshit on the octogenarian's.

I always thought that James Coco book was the epitome of something... not sure how to define it. Useless Yenta information? Bottom of the barrel commercialism? Sad futility?

The guy has slimmed down from 310 pounds to a flabby and unhealthy 200...Wow. And about 18 months later drops dead of a massive heart attack in his late 50's.
