"Lessons from the Fat-o-sphere"

Kate Harding, famed blogger of the Shapely Prose is soon to be an author. She teamed up with fellow blogger Marianne Kirby (Fatshionista) to pen Lessons from the Fat-o-sphere: Quit Dieting and Declare a Truce with Your Body.

It is described as: "a book to help readers achieve admiration for—or at least a truce with—their bodies. The authors believe in 'health at every size' — the idea that weight does not necessarily determine well-being and that exercise and eating healthfully are beneficial, regardless of whether they cause weight loss. They point to errors in the media, misunderstood and ignored research, as well as stories from real women around the world to underscore their message...

I just received a gift certificate for Amazon so it is at the top of my list of must have books for this quarter.

Lessons from the Fat-o-sphere is due to be released May 5th but can be pre-order for about $11 - $16.
