-HOLLYWOOD UNLISTED- For all of the twenty-eight plus years that I have worked for a large telephone company as an outside 'Services Technician', when we employees would regularly meet after work would always seem to gravitate to the outlandish and crazy stories that either someone has heard about, or actually had experienced on the job. Before our 'bull sessions' would end, someone would always say, 'Hey, someone should write a book about all these wild things that people have encountered on the job!' We all would stare blankly at one another, nod our heads in agreement, finish our drinks, and go home. A couple of years ago a number of us were going through our same predictable story sharing routine when someone said, 'Hey, I heard that someone did write a book about their wild experiences in the telephone company, I heard them on a radio talk show.' When pressed for the name of the author, or the book title, the person said, 'I just don't remember.' This whole process would repeat itself many times to me over the next two years, with someone remembering that someone had written a book about the telephone company, but could not ever remember any other information. Thus, I began my quest to find this elusive author with nothing more than my sense of determination, and strong urge to have a laugh at the telephone company's expense. To make a long story short. After a great deal of searching, I finally did find this book, which was titled 'Hollywood Unlisted', and it's author 'Kim Fahey', and all I can say is that it was more than worth the wait to find this hilarious epitome of insanity. To say that this is one of the weirdest, craziest, books that I have ever read would be a severe understatement. If anyone was better equipped to write a tell all book about his thirty years working for a large corporate telephone company it is 'Kim Fahey', who, I believe, probably has never had a 'normal' day in his entire life. If I could take the wildest stories that I have ever heard from everyone who has ever worked for my telephone company, and had just written them down, I couldn't even begin to scratch the surface of the anecdotes contained in 'Hollywood Unlisted.' What's really amazing is that these are not other people's stories these are the true stories which actually happened to the book's author 'Kim Fahey.' I can honestly tell you that everything that I know from my personal experience about the telephone company rings true, (pun intended), and I truly believe that all of the experiences that 'Mr. Fahey' has documented in his book to be 100% true. Not only would I recommend this book to anyone who has ever worked in the telecommunications business, I would highly recommend this book to anyone likes to laugh at the absurdities, and craziness of working in today's corporate environment. Did I hear someone mention the comic strip 'Dilbert'? This book is not for the prudish, you must like reading about things which are unusual, and rarely if ever could be considered as routine. To sum up my little book review, I shall give you the 'Fahey Creed' that is written on the inside cover of this book, and should that prove to be motivation enough for you to purchase this book, I can only say, 'You are now in extreme danger of laughing yourself silly.' YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED! FAHEY CREED: If you let me talk, I'm not going to work! If I'm talking, I'm not working! I do a lot of talking!

I lived in Hollywood for 25 years. I never saw 40% of what is in this book, but know it exits. It blew me away. I laughed almost every page yet many of the stories tied my stomach in knots. Definately mature subjects.

Its a real book. Not your usual read. Its almost as if we have our own eras Will Rodgers but with a much harder edge. Just as our times call for. I don't know of any other book as truthful as this one. I could not put it down. Not for children.

I have to admit, I jumped around from chapter to chapter a lot since the titles were so captivating. This book is the strangest yet most readable book I've read in years. You never will forget some of the stories. I've never seen the like. I can't wait for the next one to see what happens after the last chapter. A real wild read. I'm going to read it again in case I missed something the first go around.

This book is so different, yet, riveting. I couldn't put it down. You can jump from chapter to chapter except the last, 'Shattered Souls'. The stories are just what he promised. Unforgetable.

This book is the BEST! I couldn't put it down. I liked how you could jump all over from chapter to chapter and still enjoy the read. I'm already re-reading it. What a roller coaster!
