This is a fascinating insight into the way Hollywood works - or rather doesn't work. Based on this interesting book, I would not want to work there. Many of the stories here make me wonder how they ever get films made. However, it's not a book to read in one continuous go as some of the stories, inevitably, do sound similar. That said, some of them are funny, outrageous and fascinating, so it's well worth looking at, especially if you've ever thought of writing a script.
