“Gentlemen! Put your hands together and welcome Cassidy to the stage!”


It wasn’t the life Marci Warhaft envisioned for herself. A good student who had been accepted into a prestigious theatre school, a doting mother with two young sons, and there she was taking it all off in front of paying customers to "Bootylicious" by Destiny’s Child. The Good Stripper is an eye-popping journey: Warhaft reveals the punishing circumstances and self-destructive behaviors that shaped her early adulthood, including a bank-robbing stepfather, the loss of her beloved brother, eating disorders, and sexual misadventures with a manipulative husband.


She describes, in honest, raw, and intimate detail, her struggles to recognize what was happening to her, and her sometimes misguided fight to regain control of her destiny. Above all, it is the story of how one woman, after years of living a double life, packing school lunches by day and giving lap dances by night, finally became the inspirational leader she was meant to be.



Marci Warhaft is a recognized expert on body image and self-esteem, and founder of The Fit vs Fiction body image workshops.


She was named one of Canada’s Top 100 influencers for 2018, 2019, 2020 and 2021 by Optimyz fitness magazine.


By surviving a life of turmoil through tenacity and resilience, Marci uses her experiences to help others release themselves of the shame, guilt and insecurities that keep them from living their lives with the joy they deserve.



A Gritty story of unapologetic “F**K You” Survival. You cheer, cry and dance along with this warrior woman. Shocking, raw and real.

-Karen Sokoloff, founder of TINYabc (This is not your average book club)

Wow! From the first line to the last, I was hooked. A mesmerizing, often shocking memoir for everyone out there who might be afraid to share their own struggles. A powerful and candid read!


-Rebecca Eckler, author of Knocked up: Confessions of a Hip Mother-to-Be

I felt like I was on a rollercoaster ride, hanging on for dear life! Warhaft’s ability to share her meaningful yet gut wrenching life with the world is incredibly courageous and astonishing.


-Sharon Neiss Arbess, author of me and My so-Called Friends
