Lies, Damn Lies and Dim Mak,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Smoke & Mirrors and Steven Seagal: The Burning Pants of Popular Culture (Kindle Edition)
This book is a compendium of articles where celebrities blur the lines between reality and their own universe. With martial artists, Hollywood stories, parochial English TV stars and muscle-bound wrestlers, the author picks stories from around the globe and shows just how susceptible fragile egos are to the onrush of fame, and how we are so willing to perpetuate their flamboyant lies.
The wry smile behind everything is acerbic yet somehow still grudgingly admires the overblown parade. This line is tiptoed over throughout the writing, and serves to make all of it compelling, enjoyable and fittingly, completely unbelievable.
