From the Back Cover:

When Will Women Feel Satisfied with Their Looks?

Television, movies, fashion ads, and magazines continually remind us of the "ideal" female look- it's the Mass Market Woman. She's young, pretty, very thin and she's everywhere. Why does our culture insist that women and girls worry so much about appearance?

Do young and beautiful people really get more out of life?
Our beauty-obsessed culture says they do.

Does it make sense to worry about looking older?
The beauty product ads say it does.

Will being thin and fashionable bring you love or happiness?
The mass market says it can.

Women don't have to think this way!

In this insightful and inspiring book you will learn:

How to resist the subtle messages in beauty product advertising.
How to base your self-image on values unrelated to appearance.
Why you should get the Beauty Culture out of your bedroom!
How Beautiful Fitness may prevent you from achieving good health.
How to avoid using self-criticism as female bonding.
And much more!
