I probably should have known better, but I admit the final line of the blurb caught my eye "And it explains the one lie that binds them all – sex." I was wondering what it was that made these sorts of liaison's "public property".

And I still don't know. So much salacious gossip, some of it repeated directly from the tabloid newspapers (if the story I test googled is any indication), with no analysis, no explanation and ... well nothing much really except a sneaking suspicion of a bit of "nudge nudge wink wink". Which makes it very hard to even recommend this as I suspect most of the tediousness outlined in this book is already known to those that follow this sort of mindless crap.

With some judicious flipping of pages to dodge some of the more pointless little revelations, at least I came away from this with a clearer understanding of what it is that annoys me so much about tabloid journalism, and what makes me despair about a population obsessed with this sort of crud. So it wasn't a complete waste of time - but as close to it as I need to come. ( )
