Hundreds of thousands of women have been inspired to get real about the food they eat after reading the best-selling manifesto Skinny Bitch. Now it's time for the guys to have a book of their own.
Guys like the Milwaukee Brewers' Prince Fielder and the Dallas Mavericks' Jerry Stackhouse, who have adopted a whole new eating plan by reading over their girlfriends' shoulders, can now have a book especially for them. In Skinny Bastard the authors explain why the macho meat and potatoes diet is total crap-and a turn-off-and how to get buff on the right foods. Eating well shouldn't be a girlie thing, and the internationally famous Skinny Bitches will whip any man into shape with their straight talk, sound guidance, and locker-room language. This is another in the widely popular series of no-nonsense, tough-love guides to real health.
[In] Skinny Bitch, the authors gobbled up female diet trends with voracious aplomb. Here they tackle men's diets with the same tongue-lashing and lip-smacking zest...[Hillary Huber's] sinewy delivery, rich with well-timed pauses and thoughtful inflection, evokes the authors' scolding contempt with droll precision...Provocative food for thought.-AudioFile
The book sold better than expected despite not having high initial sales. Skinny Bitch became a best-seller in the United Kingdom by May 2007 and in the United States by July, more than eighteen months after its initial 2005 press run of 10,000 copies. The book also sold well in Canada.
