    1. I was impressed by the concept of this book, but it felt unfinished. Very unfinished. I really did want to love it, but I'm left loving the idea of it.The opening was really well done and the concept was well thought out, but the execution is where this books falls short for me. Let me try to explainThe book starts out talking about women and how we view our bodies and ourselves. It talks about how the book came about and how they got their models, etc. It then shows photos of volunteer models a [...]


    2. I admired all the women on this book immensely and highlighted several comments that were spot on. I wanted to give it a higher rating but I feel it had so much more potential. It was unfinished. I wish they would have delved deeper into these beautiful women and their stories. It seemed like the project was cut short. Still, I will encourage my two beautiful daughters to read it and recommend it to others. This basically has some commentary in the introduction describing the project, then photo [...]


    3. This book was certainly unique in that it conveys its message through pictures and numbers. Erin Nieto lets the photos speak for themselves. There is literally two pages of intro and then that's all the reading in this book. So anyone looking for a book with a story or some writing would probably want to look at other books. However, Nieto's book is certainly worth seeing once. She is right that people are too concerned about weight these days and we need to stop hiding something that don't need [...]


    4. I have always struggled with my image and weight. Now the mother of a toddler, the weight is even harder to shed. I loved the concept of this novel and appreciated the simplicity of the photos. These women were brave. It was an eye opener. Weight is just a number. What this book brought to my attention was how each woman’s photo had its own beauty. I would have never guessed the actual weight of some of the women just by looking at the photos. The world would be an easier place for young girls [...]


    5. Made me really think that there is nothing wrong with what I weigh. Doesn't matter if you are 100 pounds or 250. Your weight is just a number, and that number shouldn't define you.


    6. I have come to the conclusion that I underestimate how much other people weigh, especially in relation to my own weight. My biggest complaint about this book is about its length. More models and a longer book are needed, with maybe a bit more text about body image issues and their causes, effects, etc. Maybe even some info on recent campaigns designed to explore natural variations in body type and size and recognize the beauty in our differences. No, everyone doesn't have to be a toothpick-thin [...]


    7. I really enjoyed this book. I think the only thing that would have made it better is if the women in the book had been interviewed. I would have liked to hear more about them. The photos are great, and I think the author has accomplished her goal. It does make you feel that your body is magnificent, just the way it is.How Much Do You Weigh?: The Photobook



    8. Great and interesting look at the way we see "the number on the scale", and really brings home the point that at the end of the day, it's just a number.


    9. This book was not what I was expecting. While it's a great idea, I was hoping for something that was a little more inspirational and uplifting rather than just photos and a few quotes.
