Debbie Drake’s Easy Way to a Perfect Figure and Glowing Health
Debbie Drake was featured on our site back in 2011 with this exact book. The book’s condition was pretty sad and my scans weren’t very good. It was also missing a cover and when I found one with the cover intact, I thought it was time for a “do-over.” Debbie was a female version of Jack LaLanne .
The original post had some advice on how to exercise your hair and face. This time I included pictures from Debbie’s advice on how to get up from bed, increase your bust, and spot reduce your waist. You’re welcome.
Still Hungry – After All These Years
Submitter: Discovered as we dismantled and re-imagined the biography collection.
Holly: Awww, Richard Simmons! He’s been through a lot lately. There’s even a podcast about how he went “missing” recently. (He was found). I hope he writes a new biography, actually. This one isn’t the worst thing a library could have, but if it no longer circulates it’s an easy weeder.
Submitter: This book is currently on the shelves at a local public library. Who knew people in the 1980’s were so busy that they had to fit in exercise while waiting for the commuter train or even an elevator? I guess I just assumed that they stayed fit & trim by lifting over-sized mobile phones. While a book on this topic could be useful to our modern day inactive office workers, it would really need updated pictures… it’s hard to take a good stretching technique seriously when the demonstrator is wearing giant should pads or a sleeveless sweater.
Holly: If you need me, I’ll be bench pressing the PDR, or maybe the CRC Handbook of Chemistry and Physics. That one’s got a good heft to it too. (After which, I will NOT look anything like these people. I’ll be all sweaty and red-faced.)
