Not a horrible book but not what it's supposed to be. It truly is a book pushing vegan-ism. The first couple of chapters are somewhat funny and maybe a little convincing BUT when they got to the slaughter houses I bristled, said to my CD player "Sorry sweetie, 60 Minutes already covered this" and ejected the book...and rejected the remaining CD's.
I think the authors might have been a little more effective without the overkill on animal killing.
Probably the worst diet book ever written. And that's saying a lot because most of them are pretty bad. Skinny Bitch is filled with obvious pseudoscience. In addition, some of what's presented as nutritional information is just untrue. For example white flour and white rice are called simple carbs.
The narrator does a good job, however. Other than that, the only virtue of Skinny Bitch is its length.
This book starts out with some good points and humor about dieting. Unfortunately it digresses into animal rights with graphic depictions. Whether is was the author's intent or not, placing blame and conspiracy on political figures and agencies really takes away from the dieting and health topics that can really help the reader. This is a better animal rights and pro vegan book than an objective dieting book.
Wow. Simply amazing that a book with this much vulgarity and profanity becomes a best seller. The stream of ignorant words in place of clear language simply undermines the basic premise of the book. Impossible to finish if you cannot ignore the profanity. Maybe eating as recommended compromises your brain...
After reading this book I had to go back and read the description to see if it mentioned the author had a vendetta against American agriculture which our country has survived on from the beginning. I bought this thinking it had something to do with a great diet, but really the authors used it as a soapbox for their activist views. I am not and ever will be a Vegan, which should be a warning on the book, and I do support agriculture which is the backbone of this country.
Pass on this book if you're looking for a great diet book with helpful tips. Bitchy it is if that is what you want.
I thought this book might be amusing but instead found it to be crass and sickening. The information offered was not backed up by any proof. A total waste of time and money. Why did they publish this?
