Australia Random House 2000 1740510046 / 9781740510042 1st Edition Glossy Soft Cover Good 12mo 
266 pages including references. What's our most precious resource? Children. What's the most valuable thing any child can have? A parent who loves and values them and will help them become the best they can be. And where do fathers go for advice on being that kind of parent? Fathers, you say, not mothers? Now that's a tricky one. Not any more it's not. Finally, there is a practical parenting guide for men. Michael Grose has a track record in parenting books and now he has written the one Australian fathers have been waiting for, A Man's Guide to Raising Kids. At last, a book specifically written for men in the 21st century. He demolishes the myths (Children are not safe around men: Myth! Fathers need to forgive their own fathers before they can be good dads: Myth! Busy dads are bad dads: Myth!) and provides practical advice that's easy to understand and apply and covers everything dads need to know. Topics include: Getting discipline right; How to raise both daughters and sons effectively; How their birth order affects your kids and how you should deal with that; Getting involved in their sports; Fathering after divorce or separation; Getting through their adolescence; The role of grandads; and how to manage your busy schedule and still be a great dad. Men who can enjoy healthy relationships with their children are generally happier and lead fuller lives. They also become better leaders and managers both at work and within the community. - from A Man's Guide to Raising Kids. Michael Grose is a father of three and the author of successful parenting titles including Great Ideas for Tired Parents and One Step Ahead: Raising 3-12 Year Olds (Reed titles, both of which sold around 10,000) and the recent HarperCollins title Raising Happy Kids. We intend to reissue the Reed titles, and the jacket for A Man's Guide to Raising Kids has been designed so that it will work as part of a series of attractive, fresh-looking books by this parenting expert.

Am I Thin Enough Yet?: The Cult of Thinness and the Commercialization of Identity, Hesse-Biber, Sharlene
7 Hesse-Biber, Sharlene Am I Thin Enough Yet?: The Cult of Thinness and the Commercialization of Identity
U.S.A. Oxford Univ Pr 1997 0195117913 / 9780195117912 1st Edition Glossy Soft Cover Very Good 12mo 
191 indexed pages. Whether they are rich or poor, tall or short, liberal or conservative, most young American women have one thing in common-they want to be thin. And they are willing to go to extraordinary lengths to get that way, even to the point of starving themselves. Why are America's women so preoccupied with weight? What has caused record numbers of young women-even before they reach their teenage years--to suffer from anorexia and bulimia? In Am I Thin Enough Yet?, Sharlene Hesse-Biber answers these questions and more, as she goes beyond traditional psychological explanations of eating disorders to level a powerful indictment against the social, political, and economic pressures women face in a weight-obsessed society. Packed with first-hand, intimate portraits of young women from a wide variety of backgrounds, and drawing on historical accounts and current material culled from both popular and scholarly sources, Am I Thin Enough Yet? offers a provocative new way of understanding why women feel the way they do about their minds and bodies. Specifically, Hesse-Biber highlights the various ways in which American families, schools, popular culture, and the health and fitness industry all undermine young women's self-confidence as they inculcate the notions that thinness is beauty and that a woman's body is more important than her mind. The author builds her case in part by letting her subjects tell their own story, revealing in their own words how current standards of femininity lead many women to engage in eating habits that are not only self-destructive, but often akin to the obsessions and ritualistic behaviors found among members of cults. For instance, we meet Delia, a bulimic college senior who makes the startling admission that my final affirmation of myself is how many guys look at me when I go into a bar. We even learn of six-year-olds like Lauren, already preoccupied with her weight, who considers herself a real clod in ballet class because she is not as thin as her peers. We are introduced to women (and men) from different cultures who themselves have acquired eating disorders in pursuit of the American standard of physical perfection. And we learn of the often tragic consequences of this obsession with thinness, as in the case of Janet, who underwent surgery to reduce her weight only to suffer from chronic illness and pain as a result. The book concludes with Hesse-Biber's prescriptions on how women can overcome their low self-image through therapy, spiritualism, and grass-root efforts to empower themselves against a society obsessed with beauty and thinness. Am I Thin Enough Yet? brings into sharp focus the multitude of societal and psychological forces that compel American women to pursue the ideal of thinness at any cost. It will remain a benchmark work on the subject for many years to come.
