"True Beauty" By Emme a leading plus size model, is a pretty good book. In the first part of the book Emme explain about her childhood and the issues thah she had with food. The second part of the book could only be discribe as a self-help. In this part of the book she offers advice when it comes to dealing will not only food, but clothing, make-up and even personal relationships. I did enjoy the book, but I were Emme, I would have offer pictures when she starting talking about clothes and make-up. But overall, this is a pretty good book.
This biography takes you into Emme's world & how she got into plus-size modeling. She also talks about body image & it's affects on women
My weight has been all over the map and I'm finally happy with who I am. I'm the "average" size 14 and I've been that way for probably 20 years now. Prior to that I was always searching for the next "quick fix" and I tried most of them. Unfortunately they were sometimes quick but the weight seemed to come back as quickly as it left! I finally realized that it's ok to be a size 14, that I CAN learn to accept myself and be happy with who I am even though I don't wear a size 6! Thank you Emme for reinforcing this point of view and for learning to love yourself as well. This book will help you come to terms with your weight issues and help put it in a new perspective.
The reader of this book has to slog through such Emme "hardships" as her being an athlete, living abroad, dating, going to college, getting married, and becoming a top plus size model (she was signed to an agency the minute she walked in the door). If you can identify with all of that, you probably don't read or need a self-help book in the first place.
Bottom line: She's overweight and happy, but she is paid very well to stay that way. Unless you too are greatly rewarded for your "difference" (whatever that may be), it's nearly impossible to identify with her advice, her life, or her story.
UPDATE: I think the point of rating/reviewing books here is to help other readers make buying decisions. We all have different opinions. I don't understand why some readers get upset with other readers simply because they didn't feel the same way about a book. I didn't "miss the point" of this particular book as another reader suggested. I have been through more than Emme EVER will and I was looking for inspiration, not fluff.
As a very fashion conscious lady, I had explored this book hoping for ideas related to style - and was quite disappointed. Emme's chronicle of her (currently stereotypical) childhood, when food grew to have all sorts of meanings, is one with which I'm sure many readers will identify, but which is basically defeating. It only strengthens the idea that being large means unresolved "issues," which can have quite another effect than that of being truly stylish and confident.
It all falls rather flat. A gorgeous, successful model who depicts her earlier years as those of a tragic heroine is as stale as the old rags to riches tales. Nor are too many plus size ladies likely to find encouragement in the illogical notion that it is acceptable to be large as long as one is not overweight (quite a contradiction in terms.)
Though Emme does something of a commercial for plus size clothing, there are no true fashion tips. The premise seems to be "you are plus sized, you therefore must have unresolved issues and bad self-esteem, so take heart that another in this position was one of People's 50 most beautiful people." Aside from that few women of any size would have Emme's looks or figure, the supposed tragedy of early relationships with food (and other trendy ideas) is quite immature.
What a disappointment. Looking to read about a real woman, and get some good ideas for dressing and presenting oneself with confidence, one receives some whining and some pictures of a thin very pretty girl, then a heavier very pretty girl. Instead of sparking a revolution in women's image, we have a spectacular salesperson for larger clothes. This is not about real people, or our problems with weight and looking and feeling good. It's about a very pretty size 14-16 with a very well proportioned shape. Maybe I'm just too old (46) but I wanted the promise of the title. No positive attitudes, merely platitudes- no new practical tips. I feel I wasted my money.
