Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Often dressed in no more than a towel, author Leslie Goldman spent five years talking with women of all ages, shapes, and sizes about what goes into “shaping” not just their bodies but their body image. From compulsive workouts to daily dates with the scale to body fat measurements, American women are swept up in a constant quest for perfection. But the loudest voices here are those of the senior women who speak candidly of their long road to self-acceptance. Funny, smart, and confiding, Locker Room Diaries is a wake-up call for any woman who has ever wished her body were something other than it is; this book “reminds you that the ‘perfect body is your body.” (Wendy Shanker).

Synopsis:

Blending expert opinion with wonderfully intimate, often laugh-aloud confidences, this guide will inspire anyone who knows the highs of exercise to leave the lows of self-esteem behind and, once and for all, to step off that scale.

Synopsis:

As featured on the “Today” show, an indispensable girlfriends guide to getting a healthy self-image

Synopsis:

A look at locker room culture, and what goes into shaping a woman's body and body image.
