KIRKUS REVIEW

Another reminder that beauty is an industry. Eileen Ford concentrates on the crisis years ""when marriages, bodies and people fall apart,"" offering advice to shore them up via the usual epidermal treatment of makeup and hair care, health spas and plastic surgery. Still touting eight glasses of water a day, she introduces a fourteen-day diet (this year the theme is vegetarianism) with complementary exexcises to shape up the body and inspire the sex life. Toward the end she refers to a survey she conducted, reaching ""a cross-section of American women""; fully half of those responding had incomes over $25,000. The fountain of youth, repackaged for those susceptible to silicone implants and moisturized cliches.
