Jung, kurzweilig und empfehlenswert. Die Ratgeberin einer US-amerikanischen Dicken-Aktivistin, die endlich auch auf Deutsch übersetzt werden sollte.
»Fat? Chunky? Less than svelte? So what! In this hilarious and eye-opening book, fat and proud activist/zinester Marilyn Wann takes on Americas‘ biggest fear – worse than the fear of public speaking or nuclear weapons – our fear of fat. Statistics tell us that about a third of Americans are fat, and common sense adds that just about everyone, fat or thin, male or female, has worried about their appearance. FAT!SO? weighs in with a more attractive alternative: feeling good about yourself at any weight – and having the style and attitude to back it up. Internationally recognized as a fat-positive spokesperson, Wann has learned that you can be absolutely happy, healthy, and successful … and fat. With its hilarious and insightful blend of essays, quizzes, facts, and reporting, FAT!SO? proves that you can be out-and-out fabulous at any size.« (press release)
