Jane Jacobs's soothing, full-bodied voice offers a richly satisfying narration in this examination of the reasons we overeat. Jacobs's lilt conveys the irony and insights of the quotations that introduce the chapters, and her deft pauses emphasize key words and concepts in the material itself. Jacobs's voice is clear and direct when she asks questions that demand introspection about goals, relationships, and behaviors. Her tone is persuasive when offering suggestions on how to recognize the areas in life that cause the emptiness and angst that lead to overeating. Though the introduction is drawn out and some of the content is repetitive, Jacobs's consistently energetic reading provides the listener with encouragement to address vital issues, modify unhealthy behavior, and stay on track with goals.
