Product Description:

In the eye-opening New York Times bestseller, The Mirror Effect, widely respected addiction and behavior specialist and producer/host of Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew on VH1, Dr. Drew Pinsky takes a hard look at the profound changes blogging, tweeting, tabloids, and reality TV are having on the American way of life. An important wake up call for every parent, co-written with Dr. S. Mark Young, The Mirror Effect is a groundbreaking exploration of celebrity narcissism and how it is damaging our culture and our children.

Review:

“When it comes to judging celebrities and their behavior, it might be best to take a good look in the mirror.” (New York Post)

“Pinsky spells out a theory that stars are predisposed to narcissistic personality disorder long before they become famous….[The Mirror Effect] becomes a psychology lesson with celebrities as examples.” (Wired)

“Drew and Mark [talk] about the changing perception of celebrities, the hidden narcissism in all of us, and what parents can do to save their kids from the cult of Miley Cyrus.” (Babble.com)

“A compelling and intelligent study of the repercussions of today’s fame-obsessed society.” (Flavorpill.com)

“The Mirror Effect is a smooth read.…It stresses the importance of learning empathy, and how to pass that on to impressionable young people.…a how-to guide for social change that promotes individual progress.” (LAist)
