Editorial Reviews

Review

“The book is fabulous. It’s really spectacular” (Dr. Oz)

“Knowledge is power, and that’s what this book is about.” (Robin Roberts, Good Morning America)

“This book road-mapped for me why I feel better today than I did when I was 20. And it explains to me the importance of strength inside and out.” (Rachael Ray)

“[THE BODY BOOK] is brimming with advice, tips and tricks and useful science that she’s learned along her wellness journey.” (SELF Magazine)

“…Diaz’s message is smart: Your body is the best instrument you’ll ever own.” (Daily Beast)

“Her manual reads a bit like a cross between a science textbook and articles from the Well section of the New York Times your mother sends you, with a dash of a best friend that likes to overshare.” (Jezebel)

“Unlike other celebrities who are out there promoting juicing, fitness or slapping their names on wellness books they didn’t write or could care less about - Cameron is the real deal.” (Access Hollywood)

By Helpful Advice TOP 1000 REVIEWER on January 1, 2014
Format: Hardcover
“The Body Book” written by famous actress Cameron Diaz is one of the many books on various diets that were published at the end of previous year, when all of us are counting many calories we have put into our body past holiday days and bring New Year's resolutions that precisely this year we’ll finally solve the problem of overweight.

Of several books on the subject read I already wrote reviews, and to this one I was mostly attracted due to its author, curious what about this subject has to say an actress whose body for many years manages to resist aging, while she still maintains a youthful appearance.
I'll be honest I was expecting a classic "picture book" kind of book such are typically released by well-known actors or singers, but to my surprise there are very small number of photos inside, and instead the author and her team offered a range of useful information on its three hundred pages.

Cameron intended her book solely for women, that is evident from the start when with a large font she addresses to women while explaining the reasons why she wrote her book – wanting to share with readers exciting experiences that brought great joy and fulfillment, like when you eat something delicious you turn to the person next to you and give a bite to try.
That is the way author feels about her book, being able to provide information about our bodies and nutrition that she used in her everyday living, the things that make her feel excited and joyous due to the ability to teach readers how to feed yourself both nutritiously and deliciously.

The Body Book is not your typical celebrity vanity project, which is both its strength and its weakness. Cameron Diaz deserves a lot of credit for truly exploring the science behind food, hunger and mental well-being. She breaks down medical jargon into clear, common terms and speaks to readers as though we're her old friends (get ready for HEAPS of caps). So why only three stars?

As she says in her introduction, "It is not a diet book. It is not a workout regimen. It is not a manual to becoming a different person." There are few examples of how she applies the knowledge to her own life and no favorite fitness tips or delicious and nutritious recipes. This book is all about the science of the body and Diaz truly does "go there." She discusses the female form in detail, defines portions of the anatomy and also has diagrams that help illustrate her points.

But that leads to another problem... this book isn't Kindle friendly. The charts and diagrams cannot be zoomed in on - at least on the Kindle Paperwhite - which often renders them completely useless because the text appears as teeny, tiny, completely illegible print.

If you're an adult female who is even moderately healthy, gets some exercise, and knows that processed food is bad, I'd suggest avoiding this book. If you're trying to help a teen create or reinforce good habits, then it might be worthwhile. Diaz offers some decent, general, science-based advice and it could also be a good resource for girls who have questions about their bodies that they're too embarrassed to ask.

Bottom line: not a bad book, but get the hard copy and give it to a teenager.

I enjoyed this book. I was pleasantly surprised by the wealth of information here. Helped me change my views on some old habits and gave a good kick in the pants to get moving. I would recommend.

A lot of people wrote 'pleasant surprise' in response, and I would agree. Diaz is a very affable person and it comes through in her writing. There were times early in reading the book that I thought 'oh right, you were born with a great body and great beauty, easy for you to say...' but she won me over. There are only a few photos of the author in the book, and that's a good thing, because it doesn't over-remind the good genes issue. What I did like is the laminated cover with so many different bodies represented. I wish that there were more of those throughout the book. There is a combination of old-fashioned advise as well as some very interesting things not often noted before (like why the human body is predisposed to favor sugar) and some sound explanation of how different parts of the body work, in technical terms. Some topics skipped over, such as the effects of smoking and alcohol (I believe the author used to be a smoker, don't know about now), as well as some other topics I was hoping to learn about, but perhaps those will be in her new book. There's some 'you can be just like me,' but overall it's recommended!

This was pretty lackluster for me. There was nothing within the book that was life-changing or drew inspiration. It seemed to be a dull reiteration of well known facts blistered with generic advice. I personally love Cameron Diaz and think she's aged spectacularly which was one of the biggest appeals for me to own this book but once I actually read it, I found it to be monotonous. There's nothing in this book that you couldn't glean from the millions of online resources out there.
