Guylaine Lanctot, Author New Chapter Press $6.95 (0p) ISBN 978-0-942257-04-5
As hemlines rise this year women will no doubt experiencereinforced by works such as thisrenewed self-consciousness about their legs. Lanctot, a founder of clinics for the care of legs, here presents a timely manual that proffers stale advice on the improvement of these limbs. The author dubiously maintains that the yearning for ""great legs'' is not ``a matter of mere vanity'' but that ``legs reflect our overall physical and, often, psychological condition. If we're unhappy about our legs, we're likely to be unhappy with ourselves.'' The book provides a diagnostic check list to help assess ``great legs goals.'' This ``great legs profile'' claims to impart a better understanding of a reader's legs, yet it provides little accompanying analysis or commentary. The work also includes fashion tips and information on diet, exercise, hair removal, leg anatomy, massage and surgery.
