Robert Evans' The Kid Stays in the Picture is universally recognized as the greatest, most outrageous, and most unforgettable show business memoir ever written. The basis of an award-winning documentary film, it remains the gold standard of Hollywood storytelling. An extraordinary raconteur, Evans spares no one, least of all himself. The Kid Stays in the Picture is sharp, witty, self-aggrandizing, and self-lacerating in equal measure.

Robert Evans's autobiographical account had me not wanting to pause or stop it. Lots of life lessons, but not in a forceful way. He knows how to tell a story! As an independent filmmaker in this dog-eat-dog industry, gave me some ideas on how to deal with the pit bulls. I now know who Robert Evans's is. Thank you.
