    Dirty little secrets.... Every movie and TV star has one. So does every agent and manager. Some producers and studio execs have two or even three. I'm talking about an assistant. Someone to answer your phones, pick up your dry cleaning. Someone to hide your drugs. Your assistant knows what you eat, who you're sleeping with, and what medications you're taking. They listen in on your phone calls. They are the eyes and ears of Hollywood...and occasionally they talk.

    Story

    Oh no. What should have been a fun read (and it was fun when I read the preview pages to myself on Amazon) was a nightmare of overwrought "acting". Nemcoff is yet another Hollywood hack who decided a stunt book like this was his ticket to making rent. The content, culled from personal anonymous PA stories is not that bad. Sanitized and anonymized, but interesting. Unfortunately, his delivery comes off as a clumsy "Reading Rainbow" impersonation , as if the audience were children, intoning emotion and emphasis seemingly at random, with no value added to the tales. But don't take my word for it...
