As a young kid growing up in a farm town, Ross Mathews might as well have wished for a pet unicorn or a calorie-free cookie tree to grow in his front yard. Either of those far-fetched fantasies would have been more likely to come true than his real dream: working in television in Hollywood, California. Seriously, that stuff just doesn't happen to people like Ross. But guess what. It totally did.

This book is so funny. I know I’ll have to go back and listen again because I was laughing throughout the whole thing.

In a strange world where Rose McGowan was continually on display, stardom soon became a personal nightmare of constant exposure and sexualization. Rose escaped into the world of her mind, something she had done as a child, and into high-profile relationships. Every detail of her personal life became public, and the realities of an inherently sexist industry emerged with every script, role, public appearance, and magazine cover. The Hollywood machine packaged her as a sexualized bombshell, hijacking her image and identity and marketing them.

Rose highlights the subtleties of how we have been conditioned to maintain a status quo...a status quo indoctrinated into us by greedy, selfish people in power and with money. She truly is an inspiration and hero in the crusade against hate, fear, and ugliness within the world. She gives you hope.
