There’s a Thin Person Inside You!
Submitter: This book was in our nursing library (in a community college) and it’s all kinds of wrong! I’ll start with the cover. Ew. Next, fat people are referred to as “fatty’s” and surely if you’re fat you must be completely miserable! Overall, it’s poorly written and completely outdated. Not that people were breaking down the doors in 1983 to check it out. This book had a total of 4 checkouts, the last in 1990. To the rubbish pile it goes!
Holly: Nice cover. It looks kind of beat up. I appreciate the author’s sincerity. She seems to really want to help people, but this is way to judge-y. The tone is preachy, not inspiring. And, fatty? REALLY?? That’s horrible. I’d suggest a 5- to 10-year rule (closer to 5…) for anything health-related, too.
