Upcoming: The High-Impact Infidelity Diet, by Lou Harry and Eric Pfeffinger

This is another not-yet-released book (I love these, they make me feel so important). Three best friends strike a deal with their overweight husbands: if he can get down to 210 pounds, he can have a night with a call-girl one of them knows from college. 210 seems like an impossible goal for them to reach. But infidelity is a powerful motivator, and as the weight drops the women start to get worried about the fact that this high-class call girl doesn't exist.....

It's a funny concept and well-written, mostly from the viewpoints of the three guys, which makes me want to call this 'dick lit'. The authors do a good job of differentiating the three male characters, and dealing lightly with some of the issues that come with losing weight and a change in body image. The three women are less believable stereotype composites, acting mostly as foils to the men.
