Summary "In You Can't Judge a Body by Its Cover, you'll read seventeen stories of individual women who open the door to their souls: stories of shame and self-love, victimization and empowerment, being small and being big, fear and hope. In his illuminating therapeutic interviews, you'll witness women discover the secret behind their resistance to diet programs, the beauty of their bodies and hingers, and redeeming insights of what moves them to reclaim authenticity, power, and grace. Get ready to be inspired. Get ready to see it all differently. Get ready to meet the life-changing secrets held within your body's rebellion to living in a society that fetishizes thinness and shames authenticity"--Page 4 of cover.
