I was not impressed with this book at all. The author was extremely pessimistic about everyone and everything throughout the whole book. It was almost like she hated everyone that was thinner than she was because she was jealous. But on the same note she hated everyone that was fat because she "didn't want to be infected with their disease." I wouldn't recommend this book to anyone. It was packed with negative comments and information that I don't need to know about the author like how she needs to shave her pubic hair or "beard" as she calls it. There was really no "turning point" in this book where the author "found her self" so I don't even understand how she came up with the title. Don't waste your time on this one.
