This is a fabulous little book. It's a series of fifty very short advisory essays all about how to love yourself when you hate yourself. Specifically, Roth's work deals with compulsive eating, and this is her focus here too, but unlike some of her other work, this book is clearly meant to be more broadly applicable to any and all situations in which one might find oneself swimming in a sea of self-hatred. Roth is a humorous writer. She has a similar sort of wit as Anne Lamott, who has written the introduction to this book. Overall I found this book hilarious and moving. I stayed up all night to read it.
This is a wonderfully uplifting educational feel good book. The author definitely has a sense of humor which helps make a book covering the topic of weight management fun to read. I think this book is a good read for all women who need a laugh, a reassurance, and a self esteem boost along with some helpful hints. Don't forget to keep that piece of chocolate in your purse! :)
