The content of the book was interesting, and quite revealing in some cases. However, the author made a series of quite serious mistakes which detracted from my enjoyment. First, the text is laden with typos which sometimes render sentences completely incomprehensible. Greta Garbo's name is once misspelled as "Great" Garbo (unintentionally), and there are several examples of "as" in places of "was". Second, whole sections are repeated at different points in the book (especially a short discourse on Ona Munson's letters to Mercedes d'Acosta and a list of gay and lesbian hotspots in L.A.). Third, the book has no clear chronology, and skips around quite a lot to focus on whatever star the author is concerned with. As a result, the book does not keep to its own time frame (early talkies to the end of the studio period), nor does it give any explanation for why that particular period was chosen. Fourth, there are far too many commas in the text as a whole, and they only serve to render the text somewhat confusing and confused. I did enjoy the book, and parts were very enlightening, but as someone bothered by simple, easily prevented errors like these I found that it undermined itself.
