Celebrity, these days, takes on many forms -- from the glamorous Hollywood icon to the irreverent YouTube sensation. And we follow with rapt attention every minute detail of their celebrity lives, whether they're buying a coffee at Starbucks or winning an Academy Award.

In her new book, "Starstruck, The Business of Celebrity" (Faber and Faber, http://www.fsgbooks.com/starstruck ), USC's Elizabeth Currid-Halkett explores society's obsession with celebrity and delineates why we anoint some as stars but not others, and the profound business implications that entails. The book will hit the shelves Nov. 16, 2010.
