From the reviews:

“The Weight of Modernity offers a vivid portrait of changing patterns in Australian lives in terms of food, activity and employment. … this volume makes a valuable contribution by locating individual experiences in the context of rapid social change. … This book offers important new ways to think about the changing weight of Australians and how we might respond.” (JaneMaree Maher, The Australian and New Zealand Journal of Public Health, Vol. 137 (5), 2013)
