Read this book in one sitting because I was so engrossed in the characters and storyline. I appreciate how the author tackles a difficult topic for most women--body image--in a creative and compelling way. The story telling is inspired. This is a must read for anyone --man or woman --who's ever wondered if their body was good enough or if they were acceptable!

Beautiful

I've been working on healing my relationship with food and my body, with the help of the intuitive eating framework, for several months now, but I'd got stuck. This book gave me hope and a gentle reminder that the work is necessary and will bear fruit.

“Like many things born in the ’70s, the Information Age is not aging well. It started with so much promise in its youth—unlimited access to the collective knowledge of mankind and all that. But now it’s going through a midlife crisis, and instead of just divorcing its wife and buying a Porsche like everyone else, it has decided to reinvent itself as The Propaganda Age.” 1 likes
