  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Review by Joe C | 2/19/2014

    " Entertaining look at the beginning and end of a vanity created studio. It hurts not having the participation of Spielberg, Katzenberg or Geffen - but since the book is not very flattering, it's not surprising. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Review by Andy | 2/12/2014

    " An intriguing insight into the business of Hollywood via the chronological history of Dreamworks. Although, as with any othese stories, you have to question the motivation of Nicole Laporte's motivations for writing such a book considering she was is a former Variety journalist. Writing about the three main characters in this book who are part of the (if not, THE) Hollywood elite, and their business affairs, is surely a career limiting move. Nonetheless, wonderful read and startling to see how truly enormously egocentric humans can be. "

    " Intriguing back story of the formation of the Dreamworks empire; and the egos that made it work; and helped it falter. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Review by Wendy Darling | 1/26/2014

    " A well-written, fascinating look at the founding and early days of Dreamworks SKG. It's interesting to learn more about each of the major players, as well as to mull over the astronomical sums spent/received on films. An immensely readable book for anyone who's interested in films. "
