The Stigma-Defying Photobook as Want to Read . However, Nieto's book is certainly worth seeing once.

The Stigma-Defying Photobook as Want to Read: Want to Read savin. ant to Read. She is right that people are too concerned about weight these days and we need to stop hiding something that don't need This book was certainly unique in that it conveys its message through pictures and numbers. Erin Nieto lets the photos speak for themselves. There is literally two pages of intro and then that's all the reading in this book. So anyone looking for a book with a story or some writing would probably want to look at other books.

In this book the women seem joyful no matter what their weight. In fact the women that weigh more seem to be the most accepting of their bodies. I liked that this book was also filled with inspirational quotes. The only thing I think they should have done differently is to include the women's quotes right after each set of pictures so you get a sense of who is saying what.

Oh my God, do you mean it? I couldn’t tell if it was the most amazing title the book could have, or the absolute worst.

How can you live this way? I would ask him, on behalf of my parents, who at the time were calling me several evenings a week with their criticisms of him, and their concerns. You have no job, you have no savings, I would say, trying to adopt their worry. Oh my God, do you mean it? I couldn’t tell if it was the most amazing title the book could have, or the absolute worst. I mean it. I think it both says what it is, and shows you don’t take yourself too seriously. My father said that it wasn’t possible for a comedian to become very big if he didn’t make most people laugh.

I wouldn't worry too much about how much you weigh really you are under 10 stone, you also say you have a muscular physique. You're just going to make yourself ill and when you do stop the weight will just go straight back on. 0. reply. Unless you are under 5 foot, I shouldn't worry.

A book. With pictures. Of women just like you. And in plain sight for all to see, the number that their scales read that morning. No apologies. No hedging. Letting it be what it is and opening up the secret for you, stigma be damned.

Surprise and serendipity await.

“Next time I go out with my friends, I’m bringing this book. I know it will spark some great conversation. And maybe we’ll be brave enough to tell each other the number that has too much control over our lives. The stigma lifts one person at a time.” --GeekMom.com

"The effect of 'How Much Do You Weigh?' in addition to confronting the taboo against publicly announcing/broadcasting the particulars of one’s weight, is that it recalibrates our ideas of what certain numbers on the scale are supposed to look like. If 180 pounds sounds “fat” in theory, it doesn’t necessarily look it in reality, which makes the whole enterprise of weight measurement — and, by extension, BMI — rather meaningless. --Anna Holmes, The Washington Post

“Nieto has created a vital project tackling a thorny issue." -->i>The Opinioness of the World

"Erin Nieto’s project, 'How Much Do You Weigh?'... puts the body front-and-center, challenging us re-think what numbers mean. She counterposes photographs of volunteers with the number on the scale. These women model a refusal to be embarrassed by their weight and show us the imprecision of the number itself." --Lisa Wade, Sociological Images

Yeah! Funny, but I was looking through books offered free this morning......and there it was. But Amazon said that I already had the book? Odd. There it was on my Fire.....because it has photos. But I had never looked inside! I am 65 years old, born 10 lbs plus, and have very literally suffered ALL of those years because of my NUMBERS! For me, this book was a memory book of lovely sizes I have been....on my way up to the size I am......and still suffering. Worse now because of recent painful comments from once loved family members. I have truly accomplished a great deal in my life but all that is left to say about me is my weight?

Several low rating reviewers remarked that the book isn't finished. But that's the point, don't you see? This culture we struggle to live in never lets it be finished......no matter who or what we are, or weigh. I looked into these women's faces and I knew their stories.....live their stories. Except for this bravest of moments before a camera.

I feel a huge change inside of me, just from the experience of this one small free book. Thank you so much for this most precious of holiday gifts!

I'm disappointed in this ebook for a myriad of reasons.

1. The pictures are not equal. The women are photographed in different angles, and some you can't even see their full bodies. The face first photo idea is a good one, but it's not executed well; then to have the full body pictures taken in different places and in different poses and even in very varying angles just doesn't work.

2. The essays aren't handled properly, in my estimation. First, it would have been better to have them fitting on the page better. An ebook should be formatted for page jumps so a lone line doesn't end at the top of the next page. An ebook should have better formatting, period. Next, it seems as though the essays would have had more impact placed with either the models images, or placed in the beginning. Either way, to have jump links would have felt more like a properly formatted ebook.

3. It didn't feel as though the representations were equally distributed across the age and weight amounts. Yes, there were a few skinny and a few older, but there didn't seem enough representations equally.

4. With no height, how can a person judge weight? 250? Widely different from 6'3" through 5'3"!

So though the idea was a "nice" one, I felt it really missed the mark. Any publishers looking for somebody to do it properly? I'm more than capable of putting together the book this could have been, with the missing data, a wider weight, height, and age range, and photographs that capture everything this book missed.

I've never written this type of review before, but I've never felt so disappointed in an ebook that I wanted to enjoy.

The co-authors felt we do each other a disservice by refusing to discuss how much we weigh. They feel the silence adds to shame. They found women willing to be photographe'd in stylish clothing and admit their true weight. They hoped this would make other women content to be proud of who they were and accept their own size as well. I think they did a great job, and I was surprised to see that often I couldn't even guess their weight. It's just a number, we shouldn't let it define us.

"True beauty, beauty that matters, comes from the heart." ~ S.

We all know that a woman's weight is a taboo topic. The only place they will ask you your weight is at the doctor's office. Then they will ask you what you are going to do about your weight. In this book the women seem joyful no matter what their weight. In fact the women that weigh more seem to be the most accepting of their bodies. I liked that this book was also filled with inspirational quotes. The only thing I think they should have done differently is to include the women's quotes right after each set of pictures so you get a sense of who is saying what. By reading this book you will realize that the weight society seems to want you to be at actually might make you look unhealthy. This is however a book anyone can enjoy.

I liked the candid honesty of each of the women that participated and were pictured. These women shared one of what I believe all women's biggest fear is a number on a scale at any given time in their lives that always changes. With this change it effects our outlook of what we are capable of what we feel we do or don't deserve and how we treat ourselves and relate to each other. I believe all young and old should see and read and discuss with the women in their lives mothers, daughters, sisters and girlfriends how they have allowed media, and big money "diet" business run our lives. I gave five stars because honesty shared and fears relieved bring change and that's what I believe this book brings to the reader a big change in how we relate to each other and the number on scale is not the sum of the woman it may represent.

I've just begun to realize how much head time I'm devoting to the entire "beauty" concept; diet, exercise, etc. If I used the same resources and worked with the same passion to make the world a better place, what would happen then?
I think this book has a great premise that was carried out well. I am inspired to recreate an appropriate mindset. Maybe that should be the next book...."Beyond the Scale", because freedom from weighing oneself is only the beginning of a new lifestyle. How about "Freedom from Fashion without looking like a total Frump."?

I have always struggled with my image and weight. Now the mother of a toddler, the weight is even harder to shed. I loved the concept of this novel and appreciated the simplicity of the photos. These women were brave. It was an eye opener. Weight is just a number. What this book brought to my attention was how each woman's photo had its own beauty. I would have never guessed the actual weight of some of the women just by looking at the photos. The world would be an easier place for young girls and women if we had our weight displayed. It would take all the stigma of the number away. Thank you for publishing a book with such an easy to understand message.
