Rethinking Thin: The New Science of Weight Loss--and the Myths and Realities of Dieting

This book presents an argument--we know much less about weight loss than we might think. It is a book about what it is like to be obese, struggling to lose weight with little success. The objective of thinness is examined and the author calls into question just how relevant the concept of will power really is to being thin. Recommended for anyone looking for a fresh and thoughtful perspective on the experience of being overweight in this society.

You're Wearing That? Understanding Mothers and Daughters in Conversation

Is your mom getting you down? Have you stopped speaking to your daughter because of something she did over the holiday? This book strives to illuminate the often fraught mother-daughter relationship. For many, the relationship with your mother is one of the most powerful you will ever experience. It is also one of the most enduring. Learn to be conscious of patterns and dynamics that shape your verbal interactions so that they will be more positive and rewarding. Recommended for mothers, daughters, and those who know them.

these book recommendations are great, but perhaps the ek staff can recommend books that they have read and enjoyed? it's always interesting to see what others are reading.
