    Story
    (37)

    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 disappointed you about Obsessed?

    Should come with a warning for all men," This is for women", It was like listening to a woman endlessly discussing gossip and name dropping. Sure, there were some tidbits of good information mingled within the context, but the rest is just the same chapter information revisited over and over again! I suggest that if you want to read a book that will change your life you listen to, "Salt, Sugar, Fat and How the Food Giants Have Hooked Us", by Michael Moss. This WILL change your eating habits and your life. The author has missed that point that until we as a nation, and a government all fight the "Food Giants" of Industrialized Prefab Foods, America will still forever be FAT! First time ever, but I will be sending this one back.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Something that has more substance.


    What didn’t you like about Mika Brzezinski’s performance?

    Again, Blah, Blah, Blah.....rambling!


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

    Did show the reader that our perception of public figures is quite decieving and fickle.


    Any additional comments?

    Listen to, "Salt, Sugar, Fat and How the Food Giants Have Hooked Us", by Michael Moss. This WILL change your eating habits and your life.
