Book Review from Chicago Sun-Times
Yesterday, I just learned that the Chicago Sun-Times book reviewer, Maureen Jenkins, published her review on my book, "Food Choice and Obesity in Black America: Creating a New Cultural Diet."
She specifically says,
"In Food Choice and Obesity in Black America: Creating a New Cultural Diet, medical anthropologist and professor Eric J. Bailey makes the case that blacks can maintain their rich culinary culture while managing their diets and controlling the dysfunction that come from being overweight."
"In Bailey's "new cultural approach," he seeks to develop "interventions" based upon how African Americans perceive the whole health and weight issue - and how they can draw upon their own cultural resources to effect postive change. This last chapter feels like a self-help to me, with Bailey speaking directly to readers and imploring them to buy into his perspective. He doesn't offer calorie counts or exercise suggestions; he's counting on readers to seek out methods that work best for them."
