Publisher's Summary

Not your typical boring diet book, this is a tart-tongued, no-holds-barred wakeup call to all women who want to be thin.With such blunt advice as "soda is liquid Satan" and "you are a total moron if you think the Atkins Diet will make you thin", it's a rallying cry for all savvy women to start eating healthy and looking radiant.Unlike standard diet books, it actually makes the reader laugh out loud with its truthful, smart-mouthed revelations. Behind all the attitude, however, there is solid guidance.Skinny Bitch espouses a healthful lifestyle that promotes whole grains, fruits, and vegetables and encourages women to get excited about feeling "clean and pure and energized".

Offensive on so many levels

I feel like I need to defend myself before even starting this review because this book put me in such a hostile frame of mind. I got this book because I thought it would be a humorous "girlfriend"-type guide to eating healthy. I am a health-minded individual - I've read Dr. Weil and other health experts, work out regularly, and try to eat healthy in spite of an addiction to diet soda. But like everyone else, I need a little motivation every once in a while, and figured this quick little guide would do just the trick. WRONG. To begin with, although I'm no prude by any stretch of the imagination, the language in this book, far from being "sassy and tart-tongued" is profane and offensive. If I want someone to call me nasty names, there are plenty of places that I can go rather than a supposed self help book that I actually PAID for. This book is obviously created to advocate veganism. I believe in the importance of a plant-based diet, and when I do eat fish or chicken, I'm careful to make sure it is free-range, but this book was basically a combination of every PETA brochure that you've ever read. Graphic details of slaughterhouse practices and interviews with factory farm workers comprise the bulk of this book. It basically restates everything that you've ever read in Fast Food Nation, The Jungle, or Vegetarian Times Guide to Vegetarianism, with less intelligence and more profanity. And at least with those other books, you know what you are getting. Despite it's cute-sy title and cover graphics, it is NOT in any way, shape, or form a friendly, uplifting, female friendly guide filled with diet tips, exercise recommendations, and practical advice. It is an ugly, gorey, graphic, nagging, harsh, low-brow venue for the authors to try to bully you into their lifestyle choice.

this book was recommended to me by my daughter who was concerned about my health--i HAD (notice past tense!!) all sorts of medical issues which were caused/exacerbated by my lousy life-style. this book turned my life around--this itty-bitty, crappy-named book!! grab your kleenex and read/listen when you can concentrate!! you won't believe you have been so stupid and so blind to what is going on with your food, your life!! this is another book that i give/recommend to EVERYONE! please DO NOT LET THE TITLE and the few very crude comments/references TURN YOU OFF! this is a book with a message everyone should hear. and mothers--do your daughters a favor (and vice-versa!!)--encourage them to read this book.
