"A liberated, humorous, triumphant story…the writing is as fresh and as friendly as the Emmy winner’s speech. Anyone could benefit from her lessons in living large."
"Manheim’s wit runs from impish to slashing; this may be the funniest book about fat acceptance ever written."
—Dallas Morning News
"Wake Up, I’m Fat! is the heartfelt and ballsy story of how [Manheim] learned to be comfortable in her own skin…Inspiring without being soap Oprah-ish, Manheim is a natural writer; she has fine powers of description (her chapter on Emmy night is at once dishy and spellbinding)…her dignity and self-reliance are downright refreshing."
"A funny, wickedly candid book."
"An open and unabashed look at being fat that’s crammed with funny, poignant, and painful insights."
