Is Gwyneth Paltrow Wrong About Everything?
When Celebrity Culture and Science ClashBook - 2015
"Celebrity culture's grip on our society has tightened. This culture has a measurable influence on individual life choices and health-care decisions. The author identifies and debunks the messages and promises that flow from the celebrity realm, whether they are about health, diet, beauty, or what is supposed to make us happy. As he did so in The Cure for Everything, Caulfield separates sense from nonsense and provides useable and evidence-informed advice about what actually works and what is a waste of money and time. In typical Caulfield manner, he tries the celebrity-recommended beauty routines and diets. After attending a modeling competition, he enrolls in an assessment/audition for a modeling agency in Hollywood. He follows celebrity Twitter feeds, reads gossip blogs and forces himself to read every issue -- cover to cover -- of People Magazine, for an entire year, in his quest to understand the relationship between celebrity culture and our individual health choices"--Provided by publisher.
