I really wish I could find a way to give this book to some of the women in my family who have struggled with their weight, without hurting their feelings -- I fear the title alone might make them feel I was judging.

Just a compressed version of her previous book "Health at Every Size".

There is a lot of good information in here -- covering the science that shows that dieting is usually not successful long-term, that the health risks of obesity are overstated, and that self-acceptance supports health better than dieting does. There's also advice and support for moving one's own life to an acceptance model, and that's where, for me, she falls down a bit. I found her tone overly personal and cheerleader-ish. I could do with fewer sentiments along the lines of "I know how it is" and "You can do it, sister!" Nevertheless, I highly recommend this book to people who are not at peace with their body size and try to control it through what they eat (or spend time feeling bad because they are not controlling their food intake as a way to reshape their bodies).… (mere)

I may well buy two copies of this, so I have one to re-read and one to lend.

This is sometimes slow to read - because the authors want to be perfectly clear about the evidence on which their assertions are based. The title is the only click-bait going on with this book. Everything else is explained and supported with evidence.
