Hello friends and familiars,
I left one book off my "Read in January" list, not even on purpose, but it happens to be the book that I have an extra copy of to give away.
The sixth book on the list is The Thing About Thin, a nonfiction work by Sui Solitaire of Cynosure.
The post in question was one from last May, called "Self-esteem & happiness are not the ends."
The Thing About Thin uses its ideas a jump-off point, and it is fittingly subtitled Body Image, Eating Disorders, Resistance + What Really Matters.
Other than my blurb on the book's page, this review covers nicely what I would say about the book if I were good at writing reviews. Basically: It's insightful and wise and strengthening, and I think its ideas are important medicine.
If you'd like to win this copy of The Thing About Thin, leave a comment with your email address. For an additional entry, you can spread the word at your own internet-space and leave me a second comment with a link to the pertinent post.
I'll close the comments at 11pm Pacific Standard Time on Monday the 27th, and randomly choose one entry.
