    Simply bad

    This book is simply bad. It's poorly written (even I noticed that and english isn't even my first language), it's mainly old news and the guys who wrote it (I refuse to call them authors as that would imply that they know how to work with words) are so right winged they make Charleton Heston look like Tim Robbins. They are also homophobic to a degree that calls for psychological treatment - or for a walk out of the closet ;-). In one chapter they bash Jessica Lange only for acting in the movie 'Normal' that showed some empathy for a transsexual. Another chapter is called 'Reds' and is about these oh so bad Hollywood Liberals. It's the old McCarthy dance - and these guys really mean it! I love gossip and I love sarcasm, but this book only is a bitter and joyless bashing of the rich and famous in L.A. You can't help but to ask yourself if these guys aren't just jealous for not being invited to the party. This book is not really about Hollywood, it seems to be a late payback to all the popular guys in Highschool that these guys most probably were bullied by.

    Nothing New Here

    I was disappointed. And bored. The authors spend so much time airing their right wing views it interferes with the flow of material, which is old stuff anyway. I mean everybody knows this stuff already. Very little real meat in this overpriced tome.
