    Great read! Can't put it down!

    Had the pleasure of making Mr. Buddy Galon's acquaintance two years ago and was thrilled to receive an inscribed copy in the mail! His detail is uncanny, one feels as if they are vigariously seeing through his eyes...all the wonders, sights, and sounds of Hollywood there on the pages before us...can't put it down! humorous, candid...wow!! You'll be enthralled... Beth Gibson Brunswick, GA.
