Relationships with food are complex and, according to Roth, represent a person's relationship with the world. Setting aside comfort food and eating only when one is truly hungry may be an important step to facing the underlying causes of weight problems. The author is earnest and intensely sincere in narrating her book. Her subject matter is clearly important to her, and she reads with the conviction that she can improve the listener's life. However, she doesn't differentiate the voices of the people she quotes in the anecdotes throughout the book. As a result, the personal stories run together with the commentary, which reduces their effectiveness. J.E.M. © AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine
