Publisher's Summary

Not your typical boring diet book, this is a tart-tongued, no-holds-barred wakeup call to all women who want to be thin.

With such blunt advice as "soda is liquid Satan" and "you are a total moron if you think the Atkins Diet will make you thin", it's a rallying cry for all savvy women to start eating healthy and looking radiant.

Unlike standard diet books, it actually makes the reader laugh out loud with its truthful, smart-mouthed revelations. Behind all the attitude, however, there is solid guidance.

Skinny Bitch espouses a healthful lifestyle that promotes whole grains, fruits, and vegetables and encourages women to get excited about feeling "clean and pure and energized".

    "Buyer beware"

    The authors have obviously traded belief in one type of over-zealous marketing for another. Rather than being a true diet book, this is a vegan daitribe based on scare-tactics and misinformation teased from dubious sources. What a waste of money and time that was.

    "Not Exactly What I Expected"

    This is a well written, very informative book. And I very much appreciate the fact that the authors suggest specific brands that they think taste great.

    However (and I can’t believe I’m saying this), I am turned-off by the unending profanity and coarse language. I’m not typically offended by foul language, I’m not opposed to dropping the F-Bomb when appropriate.

    But while listening to this book I felt like the authors either need a thesaurus or they had been hanging with frat boys who are majoring in creative swearing or they spend a LOT of time at the gym with body builders who swear and insult each other to motivate!

    The publisher reviews call the style blunt, smart mouthed, tart, and laugh out loud. But hearing that something tastes so good my pubes will fall out or nothing is better than taking a big steaming sh** or you’re an effing idiot if you believe whatever, was way over done and took away some of the credibility and listening enjoyment.

    "I couldn't get through more than an hour"

    It might have been the subject matter but it was definitely the narrator - too snarky and cartoonish for me to listen to for very long.

    "Skinny Bitch"

    I read this book years ago and it changed my life. I listen to it now when I need to be reminded not to eat garbage., etc. I liked how they used facts and humour to get their point across. Would recommend to potential skinny bitches everywhere.

    "sassy book"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Talking about the cruelty bestowed upon animals I dont thinkbI can digest their meat again


    Which character – as performed by Renee Raudman – was your favorite?

    it is only one character which are the authors


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Use your own head and never trust anyone with your body .. its your life go live it


    Any additional comments?

    This book is for people who want the hard core truth .. you should have a sense of humor and an open mind for it

    "love this book! (not for the easily offended)"
    What did you love best about Skinny Bitch?

    I like the fact that they tell it to you like it is - including some coarse language- sometimes, there are no other words you can use! It's not for everyone, but I think the bad reviewers should have gotten a little clue from the title...


    What other book might you compare Skinny Bitch to and why?

    I haven't read anything like this before


    What about Renee Raudman’s performance did you like?

    she did a great job at representing the authors.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    no - I like my books broken up into small segments so I can think about what I just heard.


    Any additional comments?

    I have no plans on becoming a vegan just yet, but I am leaning towards vegetarianism - I think everyone should listen to this information so they understand exactly what they are eating.

    "Please get a second opinion."
    Would you try another book from Rory Freedman and Kim Barnouin and/or Renee Raudman?

    No.


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

    Some. They tell people over and over to read the ingredients on their packaged and processed foods. Very good advice.


    Any additional comments?

    Please do your homework. There are very good alternatives to eating factory meat. A lot of good people are doing a lot of good farming and keeping organic truly free range livestock that live very good lives. There are a lot of good farmers who care for and love their animals.By the authors own admission a vegan diet lacks vitamin B12 which can only be gotten from animal products. If you eat properly the way we evolved or were placed here (whichever you believe) you will not need supplements. The same attack that the authors launch on the factory farming industry (and quite deservedly so) can be launched on the supplement industry. As the author asks you to, look into it yourself. Eat properly and you won't need supplements.Please do your homework. Please understand you can be a "Skinny Bitch" and eat organic free range animal products.

    "Very snazzy and straight to the point"

    I have a degree in nutrition and still found this book pretty good and humerous. If you are oblivious to the nutrition world you may not understand some topics or terms. If you are looking for a book to give it to you blunt about why we should eat less meat then this is the book for you!

    "Very Interesting and Witty"
    Where does Skinny Bitch rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I am new to audio books. This book makes me want to enjoy more.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Skinny Bitch?

    When the pain and suffering of live stock was touched upon.


    Have you listened to any of Renee Raudman’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No, I have not. I enjoyed Renee's performance.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    I am not sure.


    Any additional comments?

    None.

    "Should come with a warning!"

    I love "reading" books but I must agree with one of the previous reviewers, I had to stop the book, I was horrified at the graphic descriptions of what happens in slaughter houses, I'm sure they're not a pleasant place, but this is not what I expected. The authors, pushing veganism might have done it without shoving these horrible images into our minds! I expected a fun, entertaining book, what I got instead is militant ideas and dubious advice. Couple of weeks ago a medical study released from Oxford University strongly suggests that a complete elimination of animal source protein leads to the shrinking of human brains...think the authors are a perfect example that the study is onto something!
