Overview

This new book from best selling author Joe Camp is an incredible story of slammed doors, rejection, ridicule, and ultimately a tenacity that produced the #3 movie of the year with no help whatsoever from Hollywood. Author of the National Best Seller The Soul of a Horse: Life Lessons from the Herd, Camp believes that anything is possible if you work hard enough and have faith in yourself. He was told by industry "experts" not to bother with his first film; that it wouldn't work. He proved the experts wrong.

Who Needs Hollywood is an inspiring insight into how to make things happen, against all odds, and confirmation that every dream is, in fact, possible. This NOOKbook contains live video and resource links.

What They’re Saying About Joe Camp and This Book:

“Joe Camp is a master storyteller.” The New York Times

"This book is fantastic! It has given me shivers, made me laugh and cry, and I just can't seem to put it down!" Cheryl Pannier, WHO Radio AM 1040 Des Moines

“One cannot help but be touched by Camp’s love and sympathy for animals and by his eloquence on the subject.” Michae Korda The Washington Post

“Who Needs Hollywood is the best motivational book I’ve ever read.” Dawn Hubbard, reader

"Who Needs Hollywood is FANTASTIC...I LOVE IT!! I literally couldn't put it down yesterday. It's such fun." - Marjorie Samuels, reader

"Granted, not everyone wants to buck Hollywood and the odds to make a movie, but everyone has a dream of some sort, and this book encourages people to fight for that dream. Work for that dream. Even if it takes half a lifetime to make it come true. Who Needs Hollywood is so much more than a story about a dog or about making a movie. Like Camp's best seller, The Soul of a Horse, this one is full of insight and inspiration. And how to make things happen against all odds. Who Needs Hollywood is written with candor, and at times a self-effacing humility and is a refreshing break from some celebrity books that are all about me." --Maryann Miller - Blogger News Network

"I just finished Who Needs Hollywood and honestly couldn't put it down until it was finished. The incredible tenacity and determination of Joe Camp is inspiring to all creative people in literature, art, music, and film. Thank you for your encouragement and insight!" --Conrad Noddin - Nashville Newzine

"This is a book about dreams. It's a book about running with those dreams even though the "powers that be" are throwing up roadblocks at every turn in the journey.

Joe Camp is a dreamer, but he's also a doer. He's a man that, from a very early age, knew where he wanted to go, and he made his plans accordingly. Joe wanted to make movies, and he would not be deterred. It's a book about following your own path to your destination regardless of the negativism all around you. It's a story about keeping your eye on the prize and eliminating the word "no" from your vocabulary.

"Who Needs Hollywood" is not just a book. It's a life lesson that we all need to study and practice in our own lives...there will be a test." --Vaughn Wilson - Author of Tell Me About That Horse

"I am enjoying the book and marveling at how Joe pull us into the scene and make us believe we are watching him through the journey his career, even though we are only reading about it. I constantly stop and re-read a page just to appreciate the writing. What a joy Joe brings to me when I read his words." --Danna Beith - Reader

Maryann Miller
Granted, not everyone wants to buck Hollywood and the odds to make a movie, but everyone has a dream of some sort, and this book encourages people to fight for that dream. Work for that dream. Who Needs Hollywood is so much more than a story about a dog or about making a movie. Like Camp’s best seller, The Soul of a Horse, this one is written with candor and at times a self-effacing humility, and is full of insight and inspiration.
Jack L. Kennedy
This book is a love story, for Joe's first wife Carolyn who died too young but believed in him, and for his present wife Kathleen. It is about strength and memories and family and remembering what his dad taught him about talent and perseverance long before he approached movie making. It is about the importance of little things like trust, observation, caring, really observing, questioning, mentoring, and doing something one believes in not just making money for the sake of the coins collected.
Conrad Noddin
