Book Description

June 3 2008
Life is short -- too short to spend most of it worrying about what you look like from behind. That fact hasn't stopped women everywhere from obsessing over their weight -- specifically, that portion of it resting on their asses. In this gleefully frank new book, Janette Barber and Laura Banks lampoon society's obsession with the gluteus maximus while offering solidarity, support, and inspiring advice to fellow B-FABs (Big Fat Ass Babes). Embracing Your Big Fat Ass encourages readers to accept and love every inch of themselves -- including the lumpier parts.

Product Description


"Why would anyone want to be a Skinny Bitch when she could be Embracing her Big Fat Ass instead? Laura and Janette have written a laugh-out-loud, daring, and generous book that challenges body drama in a fearless way. It focused my attention right where it needs to be: smack on my big fat mind. I'm proud to be a B-FAB." -- Wendy Shanker, author of The Fat Girl's Guide to Life

"A rare combination of sidesplitting humor and a deeply thoughtful look at the very serious issue of self-esteem. Buy this book and your life will be changed forever." -- Bob Burg, coauthor of The Go-Giver

"Embracing Your Big Fat Ass offers a positive twist on the inner female dialogue. It is surprisingly rich in content, with depth well beyond its title." -- Susan Winter, coauthor of Older Women, Younger Men

1.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Horrible Nov. 16 2008
By scrappypug - Published on Amazon.com
I thought this would be a good light-hearted read, but I was absolutely disgusted. There is nothing redeeming about the book. Don't waste your money. It's poorly written, not funny, and extremely shallow.

1.0 out of 5 stars Just awufl Oct. 4 2008
By V. Stevens - Published on Amazon.com
This book is so bad and so pathetic it is very hard to believe it got published. It is one very long bad joke with the same dumb punch line. It is not so much advice as it is sad self-deprecation. Close the window and back away from the computer.

1.0 out of 5 stars Had High Hopes for This Book June 2 2008
By Kathy O'Gorman - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I think we all need encouragement not to buy into magazines and television telling us what size we need to be to be attractive. I really had high hopes that this book would be affirming. But it seemed to focus on what is bad and why we shouldn't care rather than what is good about us. I felt it said, "Yeah you look terrible, but who cares?" Bummer.

5.0 out of 5 stars Literally Laughing MBFA off Jan. 27 2009
By Ms. J. Norris - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book gives you an uplifting view of people with bigger behinds and all other kinds of personal views on themselves and others. Comic and truth always work well together and is a good read. Made me feel better about myself, knowing others also have the same things going on in their mind. Love the author Janette Barber and all her other projects.
