Reviews

'Virtually all feminist debate on body image and beauty imagery owes its existence to Susie Orbach's enduring formulation' -- Naomi Wolf, bestselling author of The Beauty Myth

'Susie Orbach's pioneering work isn't just the first to expose the links between sexual politics and female dieting; it remains the classic work on the subject ... it is more essential than ever that Fat is a Feminist Issue be read by every woman' -- Susan Faludi, bestselling author of Backlash

'[Orbach's] pungent psychoanalytic insights and plain good sense ensure that this is still the sharpest, and best bible for the food junkie' The Independent
