Everybody Worth Knowing (But Nothing Worth Reading)

Everyone Worth Knowing - Lauren Weisberger

Don't waste your time reading this book... or if you do, at least don't spend any money on it. The author can't be bothered to keep straight basic details. For example, the narrator takes a job where everyone uses little Bluetooth-type earpiece phones. But later on, Weisberger apparently forgets that she wrote this and has the characters pulling flip phones out of their purses. Also, she uses "call screening" in an idiosyncratic way. These are distracting details that someone, while proofing the manuscript, should have flagged. And the story itself is too flimsy to care about.
