Publisher's Summary

All women have been subjected to the pervasive idea that we have to look a certain way; have young, beautiful skin; show no blemishes; and be thin and attractive. And if we don't fit into this stereotype of what society thinks is beautiful, then we are shunned, teased, degraded, or even ostracized. It has been proven that people who are considered more attractive get better jobs, have more friends, and are treated better in society as a whole. Is it no wonder, then, with all these messages coming at us from all directions, that body image is a problem for all women? After all, we all want the best in life, no matter our weight or what we look like, so we do our best to measure up.
But there is a better way. You can learn to love yourself and accept who you are. That's what this book is all about. Listen, and you will learn how to improve your body image and discover that there is a lot to love inside your skin. Trust that you are beautiful without all the products. This book will show you how.

This Has A Great Message, Recommended

"The Wisdom of a Big Girl" was an excellent listen. This audiobook has a great message as well as wonderful advice for any girl or woman whose ever had not just a weight problem but body image issues. As women we are constantly barraged by what we should look like or be like and these images are not who we are. I think this is a great book and I'd definitely recommend it.

I know several women who would love this audiobook as I did. These are real things that we face from an early age on and the author, Joanna Arielle Haimowitz addresses them and offers safe and sound avenues to steer us away from that mindset.

Rebecca Roberts did a great job narrating this book. She was positive and upbeat which is what this is all about. She also has perfect voice inflections. This was a good example of what I love to hear; author/reader on the same page. Awesome!

A few things on this book was helpful and thought provoking. It's worth listening to.

The narrator wasn't bad but she could have used slowing down on reading it.
