‘Everyone should read this book. Like, everyone.’
In this book about Body Positivity, Megan Jayne Crabbe slowly breaks down the toxic world of diets to show her readers what they have missed all along: a world in which your size doesn’t determine your worth. She does not let anything slip her attention. With well-argumented statements, Megan fights the fatfobia that seems to have the world in his power. She also writes about her own experiences, and the personal experiences of other women. All of this makes Body Positive Power a complete and renewing book for everyone who is done being unhappy.
What an amazing book! I wish I could digitally save all of the pages and upload them into my brain because I. Can’t. Live. Without! I did not know how deeply the cult of thin was rooted in our society. I thought: ‘everyone passes a cookie every once in a while’, but the more I read, the more I learned how insensitive our community is when it comes to weight.
Megan Jayne Crabbe covered everything, while also keeping in mind that every reader of this book could understand the things she says differently. But Megan handles this amazingly. You notice that every word, every sentence, has been thought through, and with every page you can feel your confidence grow.
The fact that this huge book is all about one and the same thing might scare you at first, but believe me, once you’ve picked it up, you realise it couldn’t get better. By including (personal) experiences, tips, articles and quotes, this book doesn’t nessecarily feel like a plea, but more like a story. A story that everyone should read.
Body Positive Power is a really good book. I would recommend it to everything and everyone, because I honestly feel like it changed the way I look at the world. I hope that you, if you are struggeling with your self-image, are going to pick this book up as soon as possible (and reach out for medical help, if nessecary).
