In Happy Fat, comedian Sofie Hagen describes how she conquered a negative relationship with her body and provides practical tips for readers to do the same. She exposes how fatphobia is embedded in society at every level - in our relationships, our public spaces, and the TV shows we watch - powered by the toxic mix of capitalism and the media.

Happy Fat manages to be funny, moving, educational and revolutionary all at the same time. I raced through this, finding wisdom in every chapter (plus more mentions of Chris Pratt than I expected). I can not recommend this highly enough.
