"There are two things people regret after the holidays- spending too much money and over-eating," said Leigh Ann Ambrosi, Vice-President of Marketing & Publicity for Sterling. "Sterling wanted to help people across the country with both these things. By offering a free ride in such a tough economic time, motorists get a break in their wallet. By reading our ground-breaking weight-loss book, I CAN MAKE YOU THIN, they can shed all those unwanted pounds as well. What a great way to start a new year!"

Paul McKenna's, I CAN MAKE YOU THIN: The Revolutionary System Used by More Than 3 Million People, is a proven weight-loss system with an over 70% success rate. Through the use of psychological techniques, McKenna re-programs the way people think and act around food, so that in the future they find it easy to eat less and leave food on their plate, without feeling like they are missing out. The book & hypnosis CD set is available now in bookstores everywhere (Sterling Publishing, January 2009), and at
