In Jackie Disaster, Eric Dezenhall takes readers on a nail-biting tour of modern-day damage-control, providing a clear-eyed, behind-the-headlines view of what our celebrities deal with on a daily basis. One of the nation's leading damage-control practitioners, he examines hot-button issues including the role of reality television programming, the Internet and spread of disinformation, the role of consumer illusion in the popular culture, and the less-than-holy motives of those who would justify attacks on celebrities in moral terms.
Suspenseful, insightful and hilariously funny, Jackie Disaster is a spin-till-you're-dizzy dance through the back alleys of media manipulation.
