Embracing Your Big Fat Ass

An Owner's Manual

Foreword by Rosie O'Donnell

About The Book

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.

Raves and Reviews

"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
