"Steve Guttenberg has written a wonderfully funny memoir of his coming-of-age in Hollywood. The Guttenberg Bible is an on-the-money account of what an actor's life is really like."
—MARLO THOMAS, New York Times-bestselling author of Growing Up Laughing
“I first met Steve Guttenberg when he was an up-and-coming young actor on the set of Diner. Now, I’m glad to read his terrific memoir of his career’s early days, and the struggles and surprises that come with making your way in show business.”
—JERRY WEINTRAUB, New York Times-bestselling author of When I Stop Talking, You’ll Know I’m Dead
"The Guttenberg Bible is better than the original! More compelling reading anyway. Steve's story of his journey through Hollywood is for actors what Adventures in the Screen Trade is for writers. An honest, humorous and instructive account of how to navigate thru this crazy town we call Hollywood."
"From his first scene on I knew Steve Guttenberg would be a winner. He's proven it on the screen and now he's doing it as an author."
—ROBERT EVANS, author of The Kid Stays in the Picture
"It’s impossible to stop reading."
“[Guttenberg] looks back on his first 10 years in Hollywood as a time of magical dreams and sobering realities. … Aspiring actors will surely gain keen insight into the challenges that may await them (if they’re lucky), while movie fans will be pleasantly assured that their faith in the dream factory’s ability to inspire is still warranted. An insider’s charming look at what it’s really like to be a Hollywood star.”
“The Hollywood memoir genre is inherently dicey, but this one is a winner. Guttenberg has a fetching style and is a good storyteller … Anyone who can tell funny personal stories about having worked with both Colonel Sanders and Sir Laurence Olivier is aces.”
“Guttenberg retains a wide-eyed outsider’s wonder at Hollywood, while offering an insider’s sharp analysis of the tough business of acting. … An A memoir.”
“In this highly readable and candid memoir, Guttenberg reveals the twists and turns of his career.”
