How does fame affect people psychologically? These and other questions are tackled in this work in which David Giles draws on research from a variety of fields - psychology, sociology, media and communications studies, history and anthropology - as well as his own experiences as a music journalist in the 1980s, to argue that technological developments in the 20th century have created a society for which humans are psychologically unprepared.

Perhaps the biggest single dilemma for celebrities is the fact that the vehicle that creates fame for them - the media - is also their tormentor.
