A Great Fat Book!

This easy-to-read book examines fat through culture, history, and other ways of meaning and understanding.  This is a great read for health promoters, nutritionists, and other health professionals as it takes a sociocultural look at fat (and leaves the medical perspective out of it). I think we need more of that and less "judgment wrapped up in scientific packages" (Patricia Vertinksy).
