Very Interesting, yet I felt it was surprisingly negative towards the magazine industry. Anyways, Read it and decide for yourself.

Tongue in cheek was fairly benign. Not really anything new or interesting to say about the fashion industry. Wouldn't waste money on this one.

On reading this book, the first question that arises is how can someone publish a book about the boring, mundane details of running a fashion magazine? What did the publisher find in this book that I am missing?

Regretfully, I found nothing interesting in prosaic details like going to work, having coffee, talking to friends etc.

Love this book! It's a glimpse of a world that we are all curious about. Clements is a witty, engaging, and personable author. She establishes herself as an insider in this alien world but also as someone we can trust and relate to. Her writing is witty ("diet schizophrenia"!) and, though critical, amiable. It's a special treat that Clements is, as she says, first and foremost, a journalist. She's an intelligent and well-spoken woman who can readliy admit the flaws of the modelling world. Throughout, she laments the changing landscape of magazine publishing: "I was still of the Pollyanna-ish belief that print was important and that we should stand firm and maintain an independent voice, but that quaint notion now evinced much grim mirth from the advertising department..." As Clements says, "The Internet had changed everything." To those who are interested in another (September Issue, Devil Wears Prada...) behind-the-scenes look at the fashion industry, this book will quench that desire. I'm definitely going to pick up Clements' other book--The Vogue Factor.
