Sounding vulnerable but far from defeated, reader Beth Richmond is wonderfully connected to this bittersweet and brutally honest memoir. It's the true story of a magazine writer's eating and weight struggles over two years, which she chronicled for a fitness magazine. A humble and authentic presentation, with no addiction pathos or mental health intellectualizations, the narrative deals sensitively with several common types of human frailty--stress eating, eating addiction, and body-image problems. Rubin's persistence will lift everyone who hears this audio and remind them they are not alone, not pariahs, and not to blame for their appetites and weight-loss screw-ups.
