The few articles I read were quite entertaining, and left me feeling quite virtuous. I would never do such things, would I?

This book was a collection of articles about famous figures (including Vladmir Putin, Ariana Huffington, Lacey Peterson and many others) and the author's analysis of the "celebrity industrial complex," her ideas on how celebrities are created and perpetuate their images. I loved reading the articles.
