*Note* - The following mock-conversation is an imaginary question & answer session between myself and the author of this here book, "Age-Less", Fredric Brandt, M.D.

Me: "Dr. Brandt, how do you spell "happiness"?"

Brandt: "B-O-T-O-X!!"

Me: "Tell me, doc, what are some of the titles of your fave movies?"

Brandt: "The Hills Have Botox Eyes, Alice In A Botox Wonderland, The Dark Knight Goes For A Total Botox Make Over.... The list is endless, my dear."

Me: "If I were going to attend a formal, what would you suggest I wear?"

Brandt: "A white tuxedo and a big, bright, Botox smile!"

Uh.... Get the picture here?

Out of this book's 160 pages, close to 90 of them were devoted to Dr. Brandt repeatedly promoting Botox injections to his gullible and rapidly-ageing, baby-boomer readers.

And, even though Botox is, in fact, a bona fide "toxin", and, yes, harmful in high doses - Dr. Brandt deliberately glossed over this potential danger as he gleefully plugged Botox, over and over again, and smugly reassured his vain and wrinkled readers that, in the name of beauty and blind narcissism, a little bit of deadly toxicity was well-worth the cost. (Don't you agree?)

Ho-hum!.... Enough said about the matter of Botox.
