    For film buffs, aspiring filmmakers, students, and anyone else intrigued by the inner workings of Hollywood, this is the quintessential take on the how, who, what, and why of the film business.

    Nicholas says: "Engaging and insightful (and also well read)"

    Overall

    I should first say that I'm not a Hollywood professional (or even an intern at the moment). I'm a student.

    Anyhow, for all that I can tell, this is an excellent book that actually feels enhanced in audio. Both authors do an excellent job in the reading and everything comes out clear in content and mood.

    The book itself paints a fairly vivid picture of various aspects of the film industry, past and present. Conveyed is the chaotic nature of the Hollywood beast, some generation gaps and changes in the structure of the Hollywood system, and some of the deals behind the scenes that have led to successful films and dismal failures.

    I definitely recommend this audiobook to anyone curious at all about Hollywood or the commercial film industry.
