Publisher's Summary

Are you ready to join the anti-diet movement? Geneen Roth has helped thousands of women get past an endless cycle of on-again, off-again dieting and accompanying self-hatred with simple, sane, and often hilarious advice. She's dared to go against the grain, advising women to get rid of clothes that threaten to strangle you and providing a new look at "the activity formerly known as exercise." In When You Eat at the Refrigerator, Pull Up a Chair, Roth combines wisdom and sass to tackle the secret ways we undermine our best intentions, teaching us how to break lifelong patterns of unworthiness, and revealing the happiness that resides in the present moment.

Pretty Good

I've found that I just like most of Geneen Roth's books. I haven't found exceptionally different information in one from another but enjoy the new form of inspiration and affirmation, as it were.

The reader is good, and gave a pretty good performance, but has an older sounding voice and speaks still as if she's reading but reading very well. But she's just not Geneen, who I mostly love listening to, inspite of her sometimes baby voice, because when she speaks, it's as though you are listening to her give a speech in person, not at all as though she's reading.

There was no story as this is non-fiction self-help, but I didn't want to give it a low-rating when really it simply doesn't apply. Audible needs to take that into account. Right now they make you rate all categories before moving on to the review portion.

Overall, I enjoyed the book and found it helpful. I may even listen to it again some time.

Good Listen

I really like the verbiage behnd this book. What I have a problem with, is the author, or the recording or her voice. There is a great meaning behind the book. There are allot of helpfull hints contained therein, if you can get past her voice and scratchy recording. I would still recommend it to anyone who has had an issue with their weight.
