At the core of this memoir - and I went for the unabridged version -- is the honesty behind the making of a bloated - "lets have lunch" world that is Hollywood, but here....it's grounded in from an out-siders view, that's peppered with amazingly honest on why this dude is one of the most hated.
Like everything in life, it comes back how you were raised. I love the story telling conversational aspect of the book, but I ended up having little sympathy for the writer (who ends up another Hollywood Dick, to put it nicely).
I don't write a lot of reviews, but I felt compelled here because I didn't like the Book Art; it was too cartoonish...which might lead a reader to believe it doesn't take it's subject matter very seriously. I think Moore (the author) respects the under world he creates, and that's what takes this way above the typical sitcom that I was expecting. He's a very skilled storyteller (blending humor and afterlife) -- and I hope other people on the fence give him a try - and tell others about it. I know I will!
