US weekly and People are my guilty pleasure, but they always end

US weekly and People are my guilty pleasure, but they always end to quickly. This book was 300+ pages of juicy goodness that I couldn't put down. Plus I learned who all those people are that mill around in the background of red carpet photos. Fun and educational!!!

I am embarrassed I actually spent money on this book. To begin with the writing was dreadful. It read like the rough (very rough) draft of a book instead of a book itself. It even had the occasional typo. Whoever edited this should lose their job.

I am embarrassed I actually spent money on this book. To begin with the writing was dreadful. It read like the rough (very rough) draft of a book instead of a book itself. It even had the occasional typo. Whoever edited this should lose their job.

While there are a few interesting tidbits, this book felt like it was written by a starstruck fan, not an industry insider. Gaida gushes profusely throughout the book about how amazing and glamorous and nice various celebrities are during what are sometimes nothing but brief and uninteresting interactions with them. There are thousands upon thousands of people working in jobs that interact with celebrities regularly in one form or another like this guy. Security guards, body guards, publicists, journalists, photographers, hair and make-up people and many more. They don't write books for a number of reasons. First and foremost because it's crass and unprofessional. And, frankly, most celebrity interactions aren't really all that interesting as this book proves. Any really interesting stuff would likely end Gaida's career and he has - wisely for his career but unfortunately for the reader - left it all out.

Ultimately this is poorly written, toothless book from a low-level, starstruck cog in the machine that is Hollywood. Save your money.
