Has anyone read the new book by Dr. Drew Pinsky? "The Mirror Effect: How Celebrity Narcissism Is Seducing America"

I've read a review and it looks pretty intriguing. It said that people don't become self-centered after they become celebrities, but they seek praise and gravitate to areas of fame.

Another interesting thing is that this self-indulgent behavior is rubbing off on youth, who now view this as normal behavior (vanity, exhibitionism, entitlement, exploitativeness, self-sufficiency, authority, and superiority). The impact of the celebrity culture is not good (well, I think we all knew that one) and the ability to put yourself out their through blogs and social networks is making it worse.

Anyone read it yet?

Why would self-sufficiency be a bad thing?

I think he meant to the extreme.
