Patzer, Gordon


Both eye-opening social history and cautionary tale, Looksexposes the pervasive, sometimes pernicious impact that physical appearance can have on your life from cradle to grave. It's true that beauty pays. Better grades, success in romance, higher salariesthese are just a few of the well-documented advantages bestowed upon the good-looking, at the expense of everyone else. But the beauty fixation gets even uglier than that. A constant flood of images celebrating the thin and glamorous has triggered deadly eating disorders, dangerous cosmetic surgeries, and unhealthy obsessions that are affecting women and men of all ages--even young children. Dr. Gordon L. Patzerhas spent more than thirty years studying this phenomenon. In Looks, he uses original research to provide a unique examination of physical attractiveness and how it has changed the lives of both men and women. Looksis the first book to explore how attractiveness affects every aspect of our lives -- from whom we chose to befriend and hire to the candidates we chose to elect and whom we presume to be innocent or guilty in a court of law. Unflinching and revealing, Looksuncovers the sometimes ugly truth about beauty and its profound effects on all of us. "Having worked the highest levels of Hollywood for 25 years, I feel I uniquely understand the power of beauty. Dr. Gordon Patzer's new book is an important work on an understated subject. Looks is a compelling investigation of an interesting topic." -- Michael Levine, Hollywood publicist and best-selling authorPatzer, Gordon is the author of 'Looks', published 2008 under ISBN 9780814480540 and ISBN 0814480543.
