OK, I admit I've never entered the world of plastic surgery or rubbed on hormone cream. But it was fun place to visit and now I understand the weird advertising coming from compounding pharmacies. I'm going to grow old and get wrinkles, thank you.
I would call Weintraub's style mundane, pedestrian, academic and plodding. She works diligently through reams of information on the dubious business of marketing and selling synthetic hormones and any number of other elixirs and snake oils. I found the subject fascinating and profound: can we use these substances to improve our lives? How should we balance greater youth, energy and sex now against future risks? Weintraub just seems to think that people who ask these questions are bad.
