Reviews

"Woolf...writes about women's addiction to dieting and self-deprecation with eye-opening candor."--More Magazine

"Woolf uses her distinctively conversational voice and nimble sense of humor to keep her arresting insights into our obsession with thinness as well as modern-day feminism and fertility from getting too downbeat. Candid, revealing, and invaluable." --Booklist
