The Top Article of the Week
Gurus are like fad diets. They’re sexy, they hook your attention, and even though most of us know deep down that the product is lacking… well, we’re still tempted. Sometimes we’re tempted to believe that kale juice will give us abs. Other times we’re tempted to believe that whatever gurus say or do is unquestionably righteous.
These ideas are actually deeply intertwined. After all, who is the one selling fad diets?
