Format: Paperback
I am not one to normally read self help-type books, but this book is a significant contribution to the literature of self esteem and body image. If you have struggled with problems over weight or other physical problems, this book is for you. Hawks writes with a warm, engaging style. He takes a detailed look at body image with an enjoyable combination of wit and insight. Hawks, a health science professor, is a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and is a nationally recognized expert in the field of spiritual health. He has spent years studying, and publishing, on the effect of spiritually on health and this book offers some profound insights on the topic. I found the book easy to read, and many chapters left me thinking deeply about things that have affected me my entire life (like my weight). I highly recommend this book.

Format: Paperback
Anyone who reads this book can't help but glean something positive from it whether they are trying to help themself, someone else, or just gain a better understanding of self-esteem and/or body image. Hawks is right on target in terms of what self-esteem is, where it comes from, external and internal influences, and how it is developed. His writing style is simple yet thought provoking and uses humor appropriately. He incorporates analogies, paradigms, metaphors, and real life experiences masterfully. His message is couched within gospel principles of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. From believer to non-believer, however, there is something for everyone in this book. It's a wonderful addition to my library.

Format: Paperback
MAKING PEACE is an excellent presentation of a complex and difficult subject. Dr. Hawks manages to dig deep into the personal and societal issues surrounding body image and self esteem through various examples, explanations, scriptures and illustrations.
MAKING PEACE is set within an anything but 'typical' university health class. The format is easy to read and logically laid out to help the reader progress thoroughly through each topic. Whether the reader is looking for spiritual support or personal growth, this book is a real treasure!
University professors beware!!!! Dr. Hawk's humorous and tender examples of classroom instruction sets a new standard in higher education.

I recieved the book quickly, but was not impressed with the book itself. I struggled being interested in it and I was not able to finish it because of this.
