"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."
