Perfect read for the movie buff that isn't looking for tabloid stories. The author, Rick Lenz, shares his life as a successful working actor that has brushes with fame, but isn't a leading man. It's also the intimate story of a father who loves his child who struggles and loves and admires his wife of many years - not something you hear of often in Hollywood! Why North of Hollywood? The author loved the title "East of Eden" - and his home has always been North of that glitzy city known as Hollywood.

A little disjointed and not quite chronological were two things that made this book hard to read and hard to get into. With an insider look of Hollywood advertised, I was excited to read this one because I always love a little behind the scenes action. Within each chapter there was a little semblance of cohesion and order, but not enough for this reader. Unfortunately, I was only able to recognize some of the actors mentioned in the book, so I couldn't get caught up in their personalities or the personal stories he shared. This book would be a perfect read for the super film buff that knows quite their fare share of movie history.
