Here are my bullet points about why I've enjoyed this book and recommend it for folks of ALL SIZES to read.
*Body liberation is what's up, whatever your size. I learned about the importance of body liberation vs body positivity and am on board 100%, read the book to understand why.
*Her honesty is fresh and empowering. If you've ever wondered if you're the only one who's had (fill in the blank thought/experience), Jes Baker is willing to open up and share her own experiences so that you know you're not the only one.
*Representation is important.
*She's done a lot of critical thinking on weight, body image, health and any other number of related topics... this is one hell of an opportunity to really understand these issues through the mind of someone who has put a copious amount of time, intelligence and energy into understanding and navigating these controversial and necessary subjects.
Read this book. Thank you Jes Baker for your vulnerability!
