Hollywood War Stories: How to Survive in the Trenches
By Rick Friedberg
Published: September 2014
Genre: Arts, Entertainment, Media
Hollywood War Stories: How to Survive in the Trenches is an often funny, always enlightening, insider’s view on how to navigate the shark-infested waters of “The Biz.”
Filled with anecdotal “war stories,” working with Academy-award winning talent, each short chapter explains a rule to follow like “Good Ideas Don’t Just Fall Off a Turnip Truck,” Humility is a Highly Over-rated Virtue” and many more.
This is a candid tale for anyone who relishes the “real stuff” behind the music, acting, comedy, television, video, advertising and movie businesses.
