The Seven Addictions and Five Professions of Anita Berber: Weimar Berlin's Priestess of Decadence - Mel Gordon Berber's life holds a wealth of fascination, and yet Gordon's biography is shallow, barely scratches the surface. Badly in need of an editor, this quick read felt more like a half-assed student paper than an actual attempt at presenting the reader with the actual woman. No context of the times, no serious study, and on a whole, very disappointing. 30 minutes and a basic knowledge of Google will turn up every picture contained in this book, so it's definitely not worth the inflated asking price.
