Author was just a crackerjack salesman who happened to be a facilitator between charities & Hollywood & dabbled in the entertainment industry (theater, documentary). He also had (mis)adventures in political races, Pan-Am game race & his promotion companies.
Chuckled at his rent-a-fan club business during his university days.
Winced on Harvey Weinstein attempt to bury author's documentary of Harvey. Playbook too similar in dealing with sexual harassment suits.
Dry book it is not with name dropping & dishing dirt.
