Book Overview

The Tall Book is a celebration of the tall-advantaged, which notes and explores the myriad benefits that come with living large--from the simple pleasures of being able to see over crowds at a parade, to the professional joys of earning more money, and having others perceive you as a natural leader. The Tall Book also offers well-researched explanations into the great unanswered questions of tallness, including: Why are people tall to begin with?...

Wish I had written this

Arianne Cohen's book should be required reading for tall girls. Growing up I was very self conscious about being tall and this book would have really helped my self esteem if it had existed. I can completely relate to her comments about trying to find properly fitting clothes and scrunching into airline seats. But on the other hand, I can always see above the crowd and take what I need from the top shelf without needing help. The info about giving hormones to girls to stop their growth was startling and eye-opening. Maybe there needs to be a "tall power" movement!

A Tall Drink of Literature!

Extremely well-researched with eye-opening analysis ranging from the economics, evolutionary psychology, and anthropology of being tall; then goes on to detail Cohen's gallivants around the globe chronicling tall issues and tipping the iceberg of what it means to see over crowds and be an instant attention-grabber...Cohen has written a first for tall body-image, and has imbued a sense of pride in me that, even after 22 years of emotional support from my own over 6-feet-tall parents and extended family, has not been validated until this, The Tall Book. Ari- Thank you for starting, what I believe, will be a fabulous revolution of tall pride, confidence and celebration. -Alexandra, 6'0"

Wow! How enlightening!

Thank you, thank you for this book - I am a 6'2" 48 year old with two older sisters just as towering tall. Their birthdays are in July, and before I had the pleasure of reading this wonderful book, ordered three books - one for each of us! And I have no regrets, as I devoured this book in no time at all - sure my sisters will feel the same way - I think I have found their best birthday present ever. This was such a self-esteem booster - growing up I had many of the same experiences as Ms. Cohen, and it was refreshing to feel not so "alone" in the feelings, situations and awkwardness that can come along with tallness. A great read, to go back to again and again to pick you up and make you smile.

Finally, someone has wrote a book that I can relate to, completely!

This book is fabulous. I am a 6'4" female, age 36. I have hated every inch of my height, until I read this book. WOW, amazing what a little bit of well written reseach can do to flip my world upside down. I couldn't be happier. THANK YOU for writing this. Words cannot describe the positive perspective you have given me. What a gift. This book is well written, well organized, and has great information. LOVE IT! I am the lucky one!

A must read for everyone... tall and short alike!!

The Tall Book is absolutely amazing, and Ms. Cohen's humor pulls you through the book; it was so great, that I just couldn't put it down and read it in one night!! From height statistics to shopping to sports to sitting on an airplane, you totally get the point that being tall is not all that it's cracked up to be (pun intended)!! The lighthearted anecdotes mix in well with immense amount of research that was done for this book. Being someone who is of "average height" (I'm only 5'4") I can sympathize with many of the scenarios given... especially the shopping!! Every woman knows that sizes aren't the same from store to store. For a great read with lots of fun information, get this book. It'll keep you laughing from start to finish!!
