a controversial, eye-opening look at the current fitness boom: where does it come from? Why has it caught on? How does it enslave us?
Barry Glassner, a brilliant young sociologist, traveled the country asking Americans how they feel about their bodies, and now he shows us vividly how the tyranny of looking good affects us all -- from the suburban wife who is angry that her husband runs obsessively, to the burly convict who works out several times a day, to the woman executive who chooses plastic surgery over exercise.
