Críticas:

"The nation's leading sociologist of daily life has turned her razor-sharp eye to rapid advance of the commodity frontier. Exposing both extreme (love coaches, wantologists) and ordinary (elder care, party planners) cases, Hochschild has produced a brilliant, compelling, and hard-to-put-down account of the expansion of market logic and its effects on our culture. This book deserves the country's attention." -Juliet Schor, author of "Plenitude: The New Economics of True Wealth"

"What have we given up, Arlie Hochschild worries, when we start paying experts for our most intimate activities? Taking us into a fascinating tour of love coaches, wedding planners, surrogate mothers and more, Hochschild offers her own compelling and controversial answers. Another triumph from this masterful social analyst and a gift to her legion of readers." -Viviana Zelizer, author of "The Purchase of Intimacy"

PRAISE FOR "THE OUTSOURCED SELF" "Incisive, provocative, and often downright entertaining...It used to take a village, but these days it takes a full-service mall, much of it in cyberspace. Finding a mate, planning a wedding, potty-training a child, or being a better father--once intuitive, ordinary tasks involving family, friends, and neighbors--now require the services of paid experts, trainers, and a plethora of coaches, such as Internet dating coach Evan Katz, aka e-Cyrano, or Family360, which teaches executives to "invest time and attention in 'high leverage' family activities." -"Publishers Weekly" (Starred Review)

"What happens to us as we outsource more and more of our personal--even intimate--tasks to paid "coaches," caretakers, companions, event planners and third world surrogate mothers? It takes a social thinker of great stature and scope to tackle this question, and a writer of immense charm to make the answer riveting. Arlie Hochschild is both, and this may be her best book ever." -Barbara Ehrenreich "The nation's leading sociologist of daily life has turned her razor-sharp eye to rapid advance of the commodity frontier.
