Review :

For some reason I found this book extremely fascinating. I listened to the audio book twice, then I got the print version. It explains how your brain perceives your own body, how that process is somewhat distorted, and how problems with body maps and body perception can affect our lives. Despite how that might sound, it's not a psychological treatise about how we should all love our bodies and somehow find a better body image through self acceptance. The book is scientifically oriented. I really do think that sometimes we become psychologically disassociated with our own bodies, and that physical activity can help us reconnect and feel more whole. I have seen a lot of this with all the adolescent girls that live in my house. If you like books about the brain and psychology, this is a good one.
