Hollywood Or Bust - Book Review

I received book for review.  The opinions within these posts are of my own and I was not influenced in any way.  Please do your own research before purchasing products or using services.  Your opinions and results may differ.

Book Synopsis:

Here is a unique perspective of what it is like to live and work where stars are born and movies are. In over five hundred quips, quotes, and off-the-cuff remarks, actors, directors, writers, and others involved in the business talk about themselves, their lives, their fame, their careers, each other, and the town itself. Their observations, on one hand, are caustic, critical, and cynical, but they are also eye opening, amusing, inspiring, and in some cases, even endearing. Be prepared to be surprised. To name a few of the famous names quoted in the collection, there is Ben Affleck, Woody Allen, Alan Arkin, David Arquette, Alec Baldwin, Ellen Barkin, Kathy Bates, Jack Black, Nicholas Cage, James Cagney, Jim Carrey, Jackie Chan, Charlie Chaplin, George Clooney, Kevin Costner, Daniel Craig, Russell Crowe... And those are only some of the A,B,Cs. Hollywood or Bust was a winner at the 2013 Beach Book Festival.

My Review:

If you are a fan of celebrities or enjoy reading quotes, then Hollywood or Bust is the book for you.  It features over five hundred quotes, quips and remarks from famous celebrities.  You'll read what they've had to say about entertainment, fame, getting into the field, their fans, and more.  Some of the quotes are bawdy but most of them are quite interesting.  This book is a fun distraction that gives you some insight into how stars feel.
