Look 10 Pounds Thinner, 10 Years Younger--Instantly: A No-Diet, No Exercise Plan

Barbara Coffey, Author Prentice Hall $10.95 (160p) ISBN 978-0-13-416975-0
Although its title is apparently meant to capitalize on the ubiquitous preoccupation with female weight and youthfulness, this book is not about fad diets or miraculous skin treatments. Rather, it encourages readers to enhance their natural assets, reminding them that ""some of the women you think look so marvelous are actually working with raw material no better than yours.'' As managing editor of Glamour magazine and author of Beauty Begins at 40, Coffey knows her audiencethe slightly overweight woman over the age of 30. The book has been designed for easy reference, and helpful line drawings illustrate how skirts and slacks should fit, how different hair textures should be cut and how particular figure problems can be solved through careful choice of clothing styles and fabrics. In an especially helpful section, Coffey provides practical answers to a host of beauty questions, from what to do about ``bra bulge'' to how to conceal neck wrinkles. (April)
