Writer/Director Rick Friedberg brings the politics and pitfalls in the music, acting, comedy, television, and movie businesses to life with his "war stories" about working with legendary and Academy Award-winning talent.

In each of the short chapters, which explains a particular rule to follow in order "to make it" in Hollywood, from "Good Ideas Don't Just Fall Off a Turnip Truck" to "Never Get Your Hopes Up Higher Than the Lowest Drawer in Your Desk," readers will learn, first hand, the rigors of the roller coaster ride that is the Hollywood hustle.

Something is funnier than Julia Phillips's You'll Never Eat Lunch in This Town Again, less “sour grapes” than Joe Esterhaz's Animal, and more broadly encompassing than William Goldman's Adventures in the Screen Trade.

from New York Times best-selling author Adriana Trigiani:

"Rick Friedberg has written a wild, riveting account of his Hollywood life, stories
that before now, were told over dinner to people like me who couldn't get enough.
He's a great storyteller regaling the reader with stories of his humble beginnings
which fueled his ambition to become a fabulous director and at long last, call the
shots as an outsider who found his way in. Loved it."

Adriana Trigiani, author of The Shoemaker's Wife
