KIRKUS REVIEW

A sequel to the widely syndicated, publicized The Fat Boy's Book and an almanac of personal observation and advice in which the humor assumes the hearty proportions of its author. Elmer, now a calorie celebrity, finds that success has gone to his hips rather than his head as a round of dinners and parties retreads his old tires. He goes back to his doctor, organizes, an FBI (Fat Boy's Institute) and provides a running repartee of slogans and jokes (you will be ""flabby gasted"") and some miscellaneous information on liquor, food, vitamins, cigarettes, exercise, glands, etc. How good is your appetite?
