“This book wasnâ€™t so much written as collected, in the sense that over the years (and some of these essays are fairly old, some of them go back a good decade or so), writers get the opportunity every now and then to give talks. Most of the time when you have a book out, people ask you to read from the book. Other times, people want what I guess is being referred to these days as valued added. Youâ€™ve written this book, or a bunch of books, but people want to know whatâ€™s going on inside you.”

“What planted the seed for this book was beginning to see children who were obese and beginning to see Type II Diabetes in children, which in the entirety of my training in pediatrics we had never seen before. And so I realized we had a very serious problem. Also what inspired me was doing mindful eating myself for decades and enjoying it so much, and then finding that when I did classes or workshops on mindful eating, people really enjoyed it a lot themselves. And also they had a lot of insights about their behaviors and were freed from kinds of prisons they had put themselves in around eating.”

“I think there were two ideas behind this book. One of them is simply the joy of exploration. Before Deb and I began these travels around the country weâ€™d been living for a number of years in China. And there we had a bias in favor of just going whenever we couldâ€“on trains or buses or horses or yaksâ€“to see remote things. We had the opportunity to do that in the U.S. because of our long background with a small airplane, so we thought: letâ€™s try it here. The other, as time went on, was to sort of grab people by the lapels and tell them what we had seen.”
