In compliance with FTC guidelines; I received the book for free through Goodreads First Reads.

You know you are thin when was a mildly amusing book with good art work.

The jokes are not gut busters, but certainly enough to bring a smile to your face. Some of the jokes repeat with different pictures from each artist.

This book is more about the art that the one line style jokes. The black and white pictures are well drawn and have a humour all their own. There are two illustrators. Each illustrator

It is not the type of casual book that pokes fun at or puts down people who are overweight all in the name of "fun." This book makes an ideal coffee table read or one that can ...more

Unfortunately, the book falls short on delivering the humor one hopes for. The Jeff Foxworthy type introduct

Not as funny as it could have been. The drawings were well done, but I don't think the concept of the book is that interesting to most Americans, seeing as so many are obese. Perhaps the author/illustrators could add some pages about the negatives of being thin. Just an idea.
