One of the most beloved personalities on television, Al Roker has adoring fans, beautiful children and a wonderful marriage. But he has also had a lifelong struggle with his weight. When his dying father made him promise to lose the excess weight for good, Roker was dedicated to keep his word but stumped as to how.
From suffering the daily indignities of being fat, to zip lining with the cast of the Today show and training for a marathon in Paris, Never Goin’ Back reveals some of his most hilarious, heartbreaking and victorious moments in Roker’s lifelong, and at times very public, struggle for health and confidence. His words will ring true for those who are fighting similar battles, and his trademark humor and warmth offer a road map to a new outlook on life.
