Book by T. Colin Campbell, PhD & Thomas M. Campbell II
Skinny Bitch is a sleeper hit diet book written by Rory Freedman, a former modelling agent and Kim Barnouin, a former model.
Known for its irreverent tone, the book gained attention in 2007 when British celebrity Victoria Beckham was photographed holding a copy while shopping in Los Angeles. According to a New York Times article, the book's sales have defied "conventional publishing wisdom, which says that a book must break into the best-seller lists in its first weeks on sale or risk sinking into oblivion." Skinny Bitch had become a best-seller in the United Kingdom by May of 2007 and in the United States by July, more than eighteen months after its initial 2005 press run of 10,000 copies.
