Some good thoughts, but not an enjoyable read The author examines the problems we have today with body image, and body esteem and self-esteem, which are all too often mistaken for the same thing. The book gives some practical steps on how one can work on having a good body image and self-esteem that doesn't rely solely on our weight or our looks.

Apr 18, Terhi Tuulia rated it did not like it. This was such a dissapointment. Maybe someone who lives in America will find this book helpful and understand herself better but for someone who isn't from America this was just dissapointing. I guess I wanted to read more about how women are viewed in different ages and deeper psychological thoughts about media's image but meh.
This book is full of "do this so you will feel better". Typical self-help book. Jul 26, Diane rated it it was ok. Interesting take on self-esteem issues. Learning to be your own coach and stop the negative talk in your head. I would have liked more personal stories and success stories of overcoming society's commercialism,ageism and sizeism? Is sizeism a word?
From an early age girls are bombarded by what is considered beautiful from Barbies to makeup. The money we spend on trying to fit a mold. Jul 14, Ashley Farrand Oland added it. I recommend this book to any woman who has ever had a negative thought about herself. I never noticed how many mean things I say to myself, and how this was affecting my self- and body- esteem. I started to catch those thoughts and channel them into positive thoughts. It's really hard to change these habits, but it's so worth it!
Dec 07, Sabra rated it liked it. I definitely think this was written with the middle aged white middle class mom in mind. There's information, advice, stories and tools about developing a healthy body esteem. Also how to help develop and maintain it in teenage and college student daughters. Sep 05, Margaret Heller rated it liked it Shelves: psychology. This was read as part of my self-help streak this summer. The first half describes how women get so mixed up about their body images, and the second half is strategies to cope.
I probably didn't give it enough time or focus, but I will try at least a few of the ideas. View 2 comments. Jul 08, Catherine rated it it was ok Shelves: health. I thought the first few chapters and the last couple of chapters were good. The rest was hard to get through. Sep 09, Elaine rated it did not like it.

The problem is that girls and women have been socialized to mistakenly conflate body-esteem and self-esteem. Body esteem refers to how you think and feel about your physical appearance: your size, shape, hair, and features. Self-esteem refers to how you think and feel about your personality, your role in relationships, your accomplishments, and values-everything that contributes to who you are as a person. The Woman in the Mirror goes beyond typical self-esteem books to dig deep into the origins of women's problems with body image.
