Katherine Schwarzenegger has put it all out there in her book, Rock What You’ve Got. It’s not just a lot of stats and ideas about body image and media it’s a NECESSARY must have for any woman. Tons of advice for girls going through puberty as well as special sections for mom’s to better understand what is up with their teens. This book is great for all women 5-95 as well as men. Especially great for the single dad!

Not sure it’s the right book for you. Well it IS the right book for many so consider gifting it to a school library or teen shelter.

Check out the Get Fit Now Radio interview with Katherine here then share it!
