Young Vanities

How To Lose Friends and Alienate People is a funny and sarcastic look inside the world of magazine publishing in the USA. The author Toby Young finds himself offered a trial with Vanity Fair and this book chronicles his moves down the pecking order and out of work.
Young has a sarcastic pen and is not afraid to use it, but the book is helped by his sense of humour as he talks about the excesses of the lifestyle people on the magazine lived.
Well worth a read I found myself laughing out loud in places and found myself having fun even though the gossipy nature of the book and its subject would not normally interest me.

Well worth checking out.
