While I agree with the general premise of this book (women are too hard on their bodies), it was really lacking meat. It felt like most of the anti-body philosophies weren't really disputed until the very end, and that felt hastily slapped on. Also, Eve Ensler's voice doesn't really change at all, no matter who's speaking--everyone sounds like a sixteen-year-old-girl-trying-to-sound-like-a-grown-up. For the same meal with a little more fat, pick up Naomi Wolf's The Beauty Myth.
