Since 2005, Barnouin has spread the “Skinny Bitch” series message with coauthor Rory Freedman. In Barnouin’s second solo book, after Skinny Bitch: Ultimate Everyday Cookbook, she expands the discussion of cruelty-free, environmentally friendly living beyond the kitchen. She explains how toxins from household items such as paint and upholstery affect our bodies and the environment. Clothing and personal beauty items are similarly scrutinized with the sass and attitude (e.g., the subsection “Toxins in Our Hoo-Has”) found in Barnouin’s previous books. In sections like “The Shit List: The Worst Ingredients in Your Medicine Cabinet,” her casual approach and clear language help consumers decipher labels full of chemical compounds. She also advocates sustainable-living practices as ways to avoid unhealthy products and overconsumption in general. Ample endnotes (primarily citing websites) allow readers to find more information, and the author provides specific product recommendations. VERDICT By now the target demographic knows what to expect from a “Skinny Bitch” title, and they will not be disappointed by Barnouin’s latest book."
