The Power of Beauty traces the importance of looks in our lives from our first hours in the nursery through childhood, adolescence, and the years as adults and parents to old age. It examines developmentally the author's own experiences, the stages of life itself, the feminist revolution that for the past thirty years has rocked relationships between men and women, and contemporary culture from high art to pop. In addition, it draws on a decade of research Friday has conducted on the psychology of physical appearance, including focus groups, symposia, and a national survey conducted with DYG Inc.
