I was stuck driving across country listening to this. The lead female character was so incredibly ungrateful and B-it-Ch-Y the entire time, up until the last 10 minutes of audio. THE WHOLE time she just complained about everyone being nice to her, she gets knocked up by a guy she doesn't even know and he gives her an apartment, job, and $ and she just pushes him away. He's such a nice guy that by the end you can't WAIT for him to give her the boot. Now that is NOT romance. horrible, that and the author must have an obsession wtih fatty food. Every chapter and one of the characters is eating something digusting.
Frankel writes a lot of truth, and she has obviously done her research when it comes to what "makes" people thin (I think more from a sociological point of view). I definitely agree with most of what she has to say, and I think if more people in the US understood and practices her philosophy, we'd be a much thinner nation. I would have liked to see her back up some of her rules with scientific research; it would make her more creditable (because it would be all to easy to walk away from this book thinking these are just 'Bethisms."). Still, I'd recommend it to anyone.
