Narrated in the author's gentle, warm voice, I bought this book last night and read the entire thing in one sitting. I am starting over again tonight, hopefully slower this time, as every paragraph is filled with wisdom and insight that will make you hit the "pause" button to go, "Ohhhhh...THAT'S why I do that."
If you obsess about food, are skinny, are overweight, are white, black, red, or anything in between, if you are Jewish, Christian, Muslim, Sufi, or whatever, grab this book.
By the way, in the midst of some revealing writing, I also found myself cracking up. A lot. Roth is a very funny writer.
One caution: if you are Christian (and I'm thinking here of my evangelical sister), do not be put off when Roth briefly explains her own beliefs. She does not try to sway anyone to her way of thinking, and her views on the God-food connection work for any woman, from any cultural background and any religious persuasion.
This book has already changed how I look at food, and it's been less than 24 hours. Worth every penny and more!

As a long-time dieter with varying degrees of success, I liked this book.
One of the tips regarding hunger is to really look at why you are eating. If it is not for hunger then you should follow the source of what is causing you to eat. I truly felt fearful as i looked inward.
This travel to the source is helpful for anyone. I was never beaten or abused or suffered devastating losses but yet I can see the voids I created in my life.
Even if you think your relationship with food is completely normal it will open your eyes to other areas in your life.
