    Story

    Mika Brzezinski is at war against obesity. She believes the fearsome subjects of food, diet, and body image are "radioactive" in America, and getting worse. On Morning Joe, she is often so adamant about improving America’s eating habits that some people have dubbed her "the food Nazi". What they don’t know is that Mika wages a personal fight against food every day, and in Obsessed, she describes her history of food obsession, distorted body image, and her struggle to be thin. She believes it is time we stop blaming and shaming ourselves and look at the real culprits - the food we eat and our addiction to it.

    Story
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    I found Mika's voice grating and the information superficial. Her condescending tone didn't help. I wondered why her co-author didn't read her sections herself? Try as she might, Mika just isn't sympathetic, something that would've helped this book a lot.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Mika Brzezinski again?

    no


    Would you be willing to try another one of Mika Brzezinski’s performances?

    no


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    There is basic info for anyone who is pretty ignorant about the subject of eating and eating disorders.


    Any additional comments?

    This book felt rushed and hurried and peppered with Mika's "celebrity" friends, acting as experts, at the expense of in-depth information from people other than Mika's therapist or Nora Ephron (may she rest in peace).
