Beauty is a subject I feel passionately about; is a very subjective term and I do not feel that there is any place for absolutes, or confined to a narrow stereotype, the exclusive domain of the young and athletic.  Beauty is all around us every day, in the faces and bodies of both young and old.  I believe it transcends cultures, religions, Ethnicity and social status. This book is comprised of the collective thoughts of more than sixty contributors from all of walks of life and from many backgrounds with a rich variety of life experiences.  Featured are: academics, artists, models, dieticians, therapists, photographers, writers, health workers, designers, people with disabilities and people from alternative   lifestyles.   Some are funny, some serious and some will move you deeply.

In essence, I hope this book will be a celebration of the human form in all its wondrous shapes and sizes, a myriad of unique diversity and fascinating individuality.  I also want to reflect the diversity of opinions I have encountered on my travels putting this book together.
