What makes an expert an expert?
This has me wondering for a while now. I saw Howard Stern's 'trophy wife Beth Ostrosky ' being interviewed the the day. I think she is/was a model.
She's written a book on dog care, called (cute title!) Oh My Dog!
It's co-authored of course.
But still; what makes her an expert? How many dogs has she trained or dealt with? And why would I want to buy a book by someone who doesn't really seem to have much expertise in anything - and who's just married to a big name?
And it's not just her...everytime I turn on the TV I see all these very young 'experts' in their field. They're not old enough to be experts in my opinion.
