I'm an avid procrastinator and had been weighing up in my head whether to purchase the ebook or the hard copy - it'd been a few months, the book had already started winning prizes overseas and I still hadn't read a copy. Well, if it's not already blaringly obvious, the Fat Chick is also an incredible problem solver and had my dilemma fixed in the form of a special package deal. Done.
Knowing that I was going to be travelling to the UK this month, I was resisting the temptation of starting the boo

I love stories that I can relate to and this one fit the bill. I journeyed once halfway across the United States on a bicycle one summer. My Wife and I had just purchased a couple of recumbent trikes and I was searching for stories of someone using this type of vehicle to do a long distance journey. I ran across this book and I am glad I did. The author is telling her story in such humor it totally had me cracking up throughout most of the story. The author shares her experiences in such a way I ...more

Fat Chick Goes AWOL is an excellent story about conquering the "soft chains" in one's life. The author's approach to challenging goals is a laugh out loud, refreshing "Fuck it, I'm gonna do it anyway." A quick, engaging read and worth getting off the couch to acquire it!

One of my favorite non-fiction books ever. And that isn't because Anna is a personal friend, but simply because this book is amazing. I am looking forward to the next publication she comes out with.

Praise for Anna Bandanna. I don't know of any of my GF's that would not devour this book. Wildly funny, authentic and totally inspiring. Anna ( who doesn't really do exercise of any kind) decides to cycle alone on a recumbent bike 2,600 miles around Oz. This is an honest account of her adventure and it's Fri!kin hilarious. This is Anna's first book and I can't wait for the next. If this doesn't get you off the couch it will give you a good laugh. Recommended.
