Review:

"[This] is that big, sad, funny, incisive, revelatory, gossipy, perception-forming book about Hollywood that publishers have been promoting for years -- and now the real thing is finally here."―St. Louis Post-Dispatch

"A deliciously honest book...Goldman deserves a special Read of the Year award."―The Plain Dealer (Cleavland)
