Read the book before believing the false negative reviews

I can't help but wonder if the bad reviews come from people in the advertising or cosmetic industries. First off, as much as Paula may have negative things to say, she backs up every word with scientific, documented research. She reads countless articles and journals written by scientists who study skin care concerns and products, and bases all of her work on that. She does not give just an opinion, but gives real knowledge. Most of the false advertising claims are garbage, not based on any documented research, and she is exposing that. Secondly, it's so convenient how you bash her for saying negative things about cosmetic companies, but you happen to leave out that she PRAISES thousands of their products as well. How many skincare companies do you know that take the time to recommend products from other companies? Even on her website where she sells her product line, she STILL talks about the newest products from other companies that she enjoys. She openly talks about the fact that she uses products from other lines on her own skin. Lastly, the only people who are most angry are those who work for cosmetic companies that make products with bogus claims that don't live up to their hype. Why don't you actually document and publish your 'research' so you can prove your products work? How arrogant to think that just because a company has a reputation, or simply because it charges a small fortune for its products, that it is exempt from criticsm and called out for the lies it feeds its consumers? Paula, march on.

DO NOT BUY IN NOOK FORMAT!!!

I love the Cosmetics Cop books - very honest, well researched and useful information. I purchase every new edition. HOWEVER, I wish I'd bought the hard copy and not e-book. So far I am enjoying my Nook Color, but unfortunately this book did not format correctly. The symbols all came up as question marks. Also, you can't navigate to a specific brand and have to scroll through all the pages to find what you are looking for. I don't know if I can return a Nook book, but I'm certainly going to try.
