    Five stars if you like hollywood and ari gold (the fictional character from the series entourage that was built after ari emanuel)Four if you just like hollywood.Some of these stories read like parts of an entourage scripr, but with a strong focus on agency.Ari emanuel (the most powerful man in hollywood) said that he always looked up to three people in the business: lew wasserman, mark mccormack and michael ovitz (this book essentially), after reading this and mark mccormack's book you'll know why.
