A great portrayal of hopefuls coming to Los Angeles to pursue their ambitions, and an even greater examination of what it means to be a creative person with a dream and trying to make it come true....In so many ways. Tommy c'est moi
A book about a cinematic comedy of errors . . . sharply detailed . . . funny
I laughed so hard reading The Disaster Artist that I cried
Possibly the most important piece of literature ever printed
The Disaster Artist is not only the terrifically engaging tale of a bad Hollywood movie, it's one of the most honest books about friendship I've read in years
Finally, a hilarious, delusional, and weirdly inspirational explanation for the most deliciously awful movie ever made
The Disaster Artist is the hilarious, behind-the-scenes story of cult cinematic phenomenon The Room, as well as the tale of an odd and inspiring Hollywood friendship.See all Product description

Anyone would want Sestero as a friend, and it sounds like someone as frantic as Wisou was lucky to have met him when he did. Their occasionally strained bond was so touching that I'd almost shed a few tears by the end. Highly recommended, and I look forward to the forthcoming film adaptation.
Despite Tommy's class performances leading to stifled laughter from the other students and frustration from their teacher, Greg is somehow drawn to Tommy's unshaken confidence in his own ability, and the two become unlikely friends. Their bond over their joint struggle to get anywhere in show business is touchingly portrayed, and for those who might be expecting an exploitative exposé damning Wiseau, do not be afraid.
Even when Tommy is at his worst while filming the room, Greg's fondness for Tommy never falters. Overall, the book celebrates 'The Room' as one man achieving his dream despite all the obstacles - lack of talent, an often repulsive personality and a cast and crew constantly at breaking point.
I'm cynical enough to note that Tommy's dream wouldn't have seen the light of day had it not been for Tommy's inexplicably vast fortune - the origins of which are still unknown to this day - then again, you have to admire the audacity of someone who makes something so utterly self-indulgent and yet still manages to capture the imagination of millions worldwide.
And the movie version is also great, but the book is a little better in my opinion.
Sestero tells the story with honesty and really lets you feel you are there with him. Like or hate Tommy, you will love this book.
