It should be noted that the singer/songwriter/ musician category is dominated by men in the United States. This is not to say that there are not any women singers or musicians in this country, but when you start looking at the overall population of people in this country, you quickly see that men are far outnumbered by women. When it comes to obesity, it is women who outnumber men by about two to one. This may help explain why Branden is often compared to overweight Vanuatu native Vanuatu tuna fishermen (though he is described as “fat” in the book). Branden has been described as having the physical dimensions of a “butterfly.”
