    " I liked the idea to get rid of your too big clothes and your too small clothes. I think I'm gonna try that. She wrote a pretty insightful book for such a short book. Near the end I liked the thought that being thin isn't going to make you happy, otherwise all the thin people in the world would be happy!! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Darlene | 2/7/2014

    " Very funny and true. Quick read "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 tara | 2/2/2014

    " A pretty good reality check. Uncomplicated, but not too fluffy, reminders of how twisted my thinking can get sometimes. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Laura Craner | 1/29/2014

    " So I don't normally read diet books and this is more of an un-diet book, but I liked it. Sage advice for anyone who has a mixed relationship with food. Not all of the tips applied to me (I have no desire to wear fancy clothes to the grocery store and doing something "luxurious" for myself each day seems silly), but a lot of them were spot on. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Emma | 1/25/2014

    " I loved this book. It goes well with some of her other work, like Women, Food and God. This book has short essays on how to disengage from the feelings of "being fat" since you can go from feeling fat to feeling thin in moments (or the other way around usually). She has gentle advice about not dieting, not trying to change yourself through shame, guilt and force, but through paying attention and acting on your own behalf. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Chavonne | 1/20/2014

    " The title really put me off, but otherwise, this is a fine book. A cute stocking stuffer for someone working on listening to their body when it comes to eating. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cynthia | 1/20/2014

    " A tome I will return to again and again for solace and wisdom around eating/food/self-care issues. Simultaneously encouraging, amusing, and thought-provoking, this really challenged me to reassess some of my old ways of thinking about myself and the concept of nourishment, and work on the hard places it helped me identify. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rebecca Alexander | 1/20/2014

    " Every woman should read this book! It speaks to women of all age and size! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Crystal | 1/5/2014

    " I thought this would be another easy breezy self-help book with a list of 50 things like "get a pedicure" or "smile more." It was actually really great. I read a library copy of this, but I would like to buy it so I can remind myself of things that I learned from it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kaye | 12/29/2013

    " If you have food issues, Geneen Roth offers a different and refreshing outlook on what is really involved in weight management. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Allison | 12/28/2013

    " Anything by Geneen Roth is worth reading, if you struggle with food/body issues. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Holly | 12/23/2013

    " Good wisdom for mindfulness, for body image, for coping, for healthy thought processes. It's written as a series of separate points, but they weave together well. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Denidevine | 12/3/2013

    " An "ahh-hah moments" (as Oprah would say)...type of book...loved it! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Yasmin | 11/30/2013

    " Supposedly for compulsive eaters, but lots of good general life advice for everyone served up in succinct 2-page snippets. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Katie | 11/18/2013

    " I thought this book was very uplifting. Some of the content I felt I already knew, but it was nice hearing it from someone else. It has some great "feel good" content that helped me to realize how important it is to be positive and love yourself. Definite feel good read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Andria | 7/23/2013

    " This book changed my life, I am not kidding. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sue | 8/20/2012

    " Geneen Roth has a way of telling you what you need to hear just when you need to hear it! This is not a diet book. Rather it is more like a guide to being kind to yourself and accepting yourself where you're at so you can move forward. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Becky Schulman | 6/13/2012

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Veronica | 4/6/2012

    " A little trite - some good little nuggets of advice, but not too helpful overall. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rachel | 1/2/2012

    " Her best book that I've read so far! It's so insightful. It's all about self-love and being kind to yourself. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ashley | 12/1/2011

    " I really enjoyed this book. The author makes some really good points that even though I knew many of the things she said, I appreciate the reminder. It's all about valuing yourself enough to treat yourself well. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Robin | 10/12/2011

    " I haven't loved many self-help books but this puts everything so simply. I must read it again. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mary | 9/22/2011

    " One of the best books I have read! It spoke to me in so many ways about my relationshps with my friends even more so than my relationship with food & emotional eating. I have read it three times & need to read it again (especially the part about when to let a friendship go). "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Karenlupton | 9/14/2011
