"I was looking forward to these books arriving, and they have both surpassed my expectations. Love, love, LOVE the easy-to-read and very personable style - it's like Jodie and Zoe are speaking directly to me and giving me new ways of thinking about movement, food and the world around us, but without the judgement and shame that so many other exercise or nutrition books carry. I want to make these books required reading!" - Tilly
