Recommends it for: Anyone battling with body image
Talk about some hard truths about your body ... or maybe that should read: about the relationships that make you think badly of your body.

Hollis cames straight to the point and on several occasions I had one of those "aha"-moments. You can believe what she says, as she's been there too.
I both liked and disliked this book. Here we are told that the reson for fat women lies in repressed and unresolved feelings of anger and the broken mother-daughter relationship. While I believe we learn from our parents, and are socialized by our mothers in particular, I don't agree that disordered eating is soley the result of mother-daughter bonds. Still, I was left with feeling more compassion for my own mother, and the struggles of women to be "more" and be "better" all the time.
