This collection of essays was more thought-provoking and serious than I thought it would be. However, it got a little heavy-handed by the end. The premise is that different women writers “weigh” in on body issues, eating disorders, self-esteem, and the meaning of the word fat.

Pro: It was interesting and nice to see a candid representation of what other women think about themselves and food. I definitely related to some of these women.
Con: Especially the “cured” women seemed to have turned their body and eating issues into a self-righteous lesson to the heathens who are not so enlightened.
