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.

Bar owner Kevin Kowalski is used to women throwing their phone numbers at him, but lately he's more interested in finding a woman to settle down with. A woman like Beth Hansen. If only their first meeting hadn't gone so badly. Beth's tending bar at a wedding when she comes face-to-face with a tuxedo-clad man she never thought she'd see again. She tries to keep her distance from Kevin but, by last call, she can't say no to his too-blue eyes or the invitation back to his room.

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.
