Vibrant, vivacious and gorgeous, Wendy Shanker is a fat girl who has simply had enough - enough of family, friends, co-workers, women's magazines, even strangers on the street all trying (and failing) to make her thin. With her mandate to change the world - and the humour and energy to do it - Wendy shows how media madness, corporate greed and even the most well-intentioned loved ones can chip away at a woman's confidence. She invites people of all sizes, shapes and dissatisfactions to trade self-loathing for self-tolerance, celebrity worship for reality reverence, and a carb-free life for a guilt-free Krispy Kreme. Wendy explores dieting debacles, full-figured fashions and feminist philosophy while guiding you through exercise clubs, doctors' offices, shopping malls and the bedroom. In the process, she will convince you that you can be fit and fat, even as the weight loss industry conspires to make you think otherwise. "The Fat Girl's Guide to Life" invites you to step off the scales and weigh the issues for yourself.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'Funny, feminist, fat, friendly and fierce. It's food, it's fulfilling' Eve Ensler, author of The Vagina Monologues 'Wendy Shanker's self-help memoir isn't just for overweight women. The frank and funny look at living large in America will resonate with any woman who has obsessed over her body image (and who hasn't?)' Chicago Sun-Times 'Unlike most dieters in her position, Shanker's turned that frustration to good use, producing a feisty, funny book ... It details her weight-battling experiences while putting a persuasive case for being fat and happy: she's clearly both' Independent on Sunday 'Don't mistake this for a ten-step self-help program. Shanker's mad, and she's not going to take it anymore ... The writing is witty, the arguments cogent, and Shanker presents a winning persona. Her message is empowering' Boston Globe
