    I want to own this book. Not because of the amazing recipes in here (though I did get some great ones. Home made shake-and-bake FTW). But because the book cover is just so damn squishy. I couldn't stop squeezing it. As I explained to the coworker, after I made her squeeze it, "See, it's fat! So that we fat people feel more comfortable with it!" The look of horror on her face was very satisfying.

    Weight Watchers itself needs no introduction but it may be a surprise to note that they are celebrating their 50th anniversary. This is a thick cookbook to celebrate, promising 200 recipes suitable for every meal (and probably every waistline). Some of the recipes might surprise the uninitiated, such as fish and chips or pizza, being available as one tends to associate these as being not a typical thing a dieter should enjoy. Other recipes may surprise by being being more esoteric, more "upscale" Weight Watchers itself needs no introduction but it may be a surprise to note that they are celebrating their 50th anniversary. This is a thick cookbook to celebrate, promising 200 recipes suitable for every meal (and probably every waistline). Some of the recipes might surprise the uninitiated, such as fish and chips or pizza, being available as one tends to associate these as being not a typical thing a dieter should enjoy. Other recipes may surprise by being being more esoteric, more "upscale" than one may similar imagine, such as Moroccan swordfish with couscous! Needless to say this is a pleasant book, capable of giving much even if you never intend to undertake a Weight Watchers dietary programme. Matters start with a good general introduction which covers healthy eating tips as well as, of course, a brief history of Weight Watchers. The right balance was reached with providing an interesting read without it turning out to be a tiresomely-long advertising monologue. Then it is time to get cooking! The recipes are split into key chapters of breakfast all day; midday meals; classic starters; family entrées; meatless mainstays; Italian favourites; side stories and best-in-show. A few little niggles exist with this book: there is no mini index at the start of each section for ease of navigation, no clear estimation of a typical preparation and cooking time and all the units are solely in U.S. measures. The latter is an unforgivable oversight nowadays and burying a conversion table deep in the book is not acceptable. Similarly for such a celebratory book would it have been so much to ask for a picture of each dish? The quality of food photography is good and this highlights the paucity of images, especially when you note the otherwise high quality production of this book and its price. When you look at the recipes you can be in culinary love, particularly if you are following a dietary plan. Unless you look very closely you might be forgiven for forgetting that this is a book primarily for those who are trying to lose weight (or keep it off). The nutritional information and Weight Watcher "PointsPlus" count is discreetly tucked away at the end of each recipe. This reviewer was particularly pleased to see many favourite recipes that he would never have imagined them to have appeared in a dietary book. Decisions decisions. For a general recipe book this might be a little over-priced but many online retailers will invariably discount this title to a more palatable level. For a recipe book aimed at those seeking to lose a bit of weight whilst remaining positive through the presence of many favourite recipes and interesting dishes this could be a great deal. If in any doubt, check the book out. Weightwatchers 50th Anniversary Cookbook, published by St. Martin's Press. ISBN 9781250036407, 335 pages. Typical price: USD29.99.

    I was very impressed with the new Weight Watchers 50th Anniversary Cookbook. Cooking doesn't come easy for me, so I was pleased that the recipes were a cinch to follow with easy-to-find ingredients. The photographs of various dishes were just gorgeous - made me want to try everything. The cookbook starts with a quick history of Weight Watchers, as well as charts on dry and liquid measurement equivalents and metric equivalents. The book ends with a PointsPlus value index, with recipes categorized I was very impressed with the new Weight Watchers 50th Anniversary Cookbook. Cooking doesn't come easy for me, so I was pleased that the recipes were a cinch to follow with easy-to-find ingredients. The photographs of various dishes were just gorgeous - made me want to try everything. The cookbook starts with a quick history of Weight Watchers, as well as charts on dry and liquid measurement equivalents and metric equivalents. The book ends with a PointsPlus value index, with recipes categorized by how many points they have to make meal planning easy. The recipes themselves are broken down into eight sections: * Breakfast All Day * Midday Meals * Classic Starters * Family Entrees * Meatless Mainstays * Italian Favorites * Side Stories * Best-In-Show (Desserts) Each recipe includes nutritional information and its PointsPlus value per serving. I loved that the cookbook included some classic Weight Watchers favorites from past decades, like Hawaiian Mousse (1970s), Crunchy Peanut Butter Fudge (1980s), and Microwave Chickpea and Vegetable Soup (1990s). I would recommend this cookbook to anyone looking for easy, healthy and tasty recipes, whether you're on the Weight Watchers program or not. I give it a yummy 4½-stars!

    My library got this book so I decided to look through it. I don't participate with Weight Watchers, but I've cooked a lot of their recipes over the years & almost without exception each has been a solid, flavorful recipe so I am always curious to see what they are coming up with. This cookbook is a compilation of some of the most popular Weight Watchers recipes over the years and in many cases they've been updated for modern techniques and flavors.

    Lots of delicious-sounding recipes here that use healthy ingredients. No fake chemical stuff here. Not all are lowest-caloric but the points provide a quick indication. But I have to gripe about the formatting: the center margin is too narrow which makes it difficult to photocopy pages. Really, doesn't everyone scan/photocopy, if only to keep the book out of the kitchen and clean?

    I was looking forward to using this and maybe buying it. Unfortunately, the only recipe I wanted to try is the mushroom barley soup which is available free online. For a long-term weight watcher , this might be more nostalgic. I wanted to use it during my current attempt to reach goal weight but think I'm better off without it.

    This is a fun book that has a little bit of everything in it. This books shows that you can still eat your favorite foods and keep it within your calories. At the beginning of the book they have tips of getting healthier and making changes in our lives. Very helpful.

    My guilty pleasure...I like GOOD recipe books, and I actually use them. I checked this one from the library because I find WW is among the best in health and nutrition...from cooking to losing and keep off weight. I will buy the cookbook.

    The only way to become accustomed to healthy foods, and to wean ourselves off the fat, meat, and dairy rich diets Americans eat is to actually eat healthy foods & become accustomed to them. This cookbook helps make that possible.

    I enjoyed the fact that the recipes were easy to follow and didn't have too many steps. I love it when ingredients are readily available, living in a small area does limit what ingredients you have access to. I am going to try the cheese crisps and the minestrone.

    Loved the book and almost every recipe in this book tastes amazing, i was able to revamp some of them and make them into my own without a problem! 5 stars for sure!

    A cookbook that is useful - the irony. This book has a lot of good recipes that do not have lengthy ingredients and directions. I have several recipes flagged for future good eating meals.

    I enjoyed looking through this cookbook, which has recipes of varying lengths, many with accompanying photos. I've flagged several recipes to copy before returning the cookbook to the library.

    I enjoyed this book immensely. There are recipes for every taste. The photos are beautiful, I wish there was a photo for every recipe.
