bookshelves: business, philosophy

The authors discuss authenticity in only a very superficial sense, and they never reconcile the paradox of consciously manufacturing or creating "authenticity." Perhaps they are unaware of the paradox; perhaps they ignore it because it does not suit the stated ends of their book, which is to project a sense of "authenticity" to the consumer in order to sell more widgets.
