Item description for Slim Chance, Fat Hope: Society's Obsession With Thinness by Catherine Tay Swee Kian & Catherine Swee Kian Tay...

Slimming and dieting has become such a fixation among Singaporeans that manufacturers and distributors of weight-reducing products are laughing all the way to the bank. However, the recent spate of controversies surrounding slimming pills is no laughing matter.

This book is a collection of articles accessible to anyone who wants to know more about the phenomenon, its consequences and related topics. Its purpose is not to champion the "ideal" of being slim, but rather to provide a platform for meaningful discussion and for educating the general public about a healthier way of living.

Written by people from all walks of life, such as doctors, lawyers, academics, counsellors and journalists, the book takes a thoughtful and at times light-hearted look at Singaporeans "obsession" with their body image, and reflects on other issues it raises.

The star attractions of this book are interviews with two of Singapores best-loved comedians, Moses Lim and Hossan Leong. Let them give you a humorous first-hand account of how they view and come to terms with their own body size and turn it into confidence both on and off the stage.

Promise Angels is dedicated to bringing you great books at great prices. Whether you read for entertainment, to learn, or for literacy - you will find what you want at!
