Exploring a largely hidden arena of cultural production, she shows how the right "look" is discovered, developed, and packaged to become a prized commodity. She examines how models sell themselves, how agents promote them, and how clients decide to hire them. An original contribution to the sociology of work in the new cultural economy, Pricing Beauty offers rich, accessible analysis of the invisible ways in which gender, race, and class shape worth in the marketplace.

What would have made Pricing Beauty better?
Actually writing in an entertaining way
What do you think your next listen will be?
Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Cris Dukehart?
Maybe a British English speaker? American-English read by women can be a bit sharp for the ear.
What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?
Any additional comments?
Some texts are better written than auditive.

Like a freshman year sociology paper
Parts of this were interesting, but there was too much lingo, too much repetition and a whole lot of stating the obvious.
