Blake helps Lauren understand that she’s not the crazy one in her life. But Blake's attention—and insights into life and living with bipolar disorder—threaten to destroy everything Lauren has created for herself, including her relationship with Sierra.

The inspiring true story behind the weight-loss saga chronicled on NBC's blockbuster show, The Biggest Loser. There's no getting past it: the Morellis were a fat family. From cookie dough and pizza binges to extreme plastic surgeries, Ron, Becky, Mike and Max Morelli experienced the swinging pendulum of weight loss that so many Americans know all too well. But when Ron and Mike were accepted as contestants on The Biggest Loser, the Morellis' lives changed forever. Ron, at 430 pounds, and 18-year-old Mike, at 388 pounds, made it to the final four, losing a whopping 399 pounds combined. Fat Family/Fit Family also tells the story of wife Becky and youngest son, Max-the story not seen on TV, but relatable to scores of American families, the story of what happens when two foodaholics meet, fall in love, get married and raise (almost inevitably) foodaholic kids. Sharing the eye-opening perspective of each family member, Fat Family/Fit Family chronicles the Morellis' amazing journey in dropping over 700 pounds together, from the emotional and physical struggles of obesity to the triumph of their newfound healthy lifestyle. Obesity doesn't just happen in a vacuum-it starts in homes like the Morellis, and it can end there, too. Fat Family/Fit Family is an ultimately inspiring story about the healing power of family.

Category: Biography & Autobiography
Bob Marley is the unchallenged king of reggae and one of music's great iconic figures. Rita Marley was not just his wife and the mother of four of his children but his backing singer and friend, life-long companion and soul mate. They met in Trenchtown when he was 19 and she was 18, and she was very much part of his musical career, selling his early recordings from their house in the days before Island Records signed up the Wailers. She shared the hard times and the dangers - when Bob was wounded in a gunfight before the Peace Concert, Rita was shot in the head and left for dead. Their marriage was not always easy, but Rita was the woman Bob returned to no matter where music and other women might take him, the woman who held him when he died at the age of 35. Today she sees herself as the guardian of his legacy. Full of new insights, No Woman No Cry is a unique biography of Marley by someone who understands what it meant to grow up in poverty in Jamaica, to battle racism and prejudice. It is also a moving and inspiring story of a marriage that survived both poverty and then the strains of global celebrity. 'It will surely become the definitive biographical account of the reggae guitarist-singer-songwriter who changed pop music and in the process became a leader to millions' The Times 'Rita Marley is reggae royalty . . . In her own words, this is a revealing insight into Marley's life and legacy' Daily Mirror

Publisher: Bloomsbury Publishing
Average body mass in many Western cultures is getting larger and yet the fashion system seems mostly unchanged. Major fashion houses still limit their output to small sizes and the dominant ideal of the female body in fashion imagery is still thin – dangerously thin according to World Health Organization standards. Why is the industry forfeiting a considerable share of the market in the form of plus-size consumers, seemingly against its commercial interests? Why does the thin ideal reign supreme despite damning evidence of its harm to women? And is there a way out of this system of thin ideals and segregated fat bodies? In this original study, Paolo Volonté answers these questions and more, drawing on influential literature on the body, beauty standards and the roles of clothing in society. He reveals some surprising factors behind the perpetuation of the thin ideal such as the precedent of thin models and the introduction of standardised sizing for mass-manufactured clothing. He also revisits less surprising factors such as the attitudes of designers and consumers towards the female body, and notions of 'perfection'. By critically analysing these factors, Volonté reveals why plus-size fashion is often characterised by 'low aesthetic commitment' and low quality marketing. He explores the nature of the segregation of fat bodies in fashion and considers what the future may hold for consumers, designers and marketers alike.
