Nemcoff's "Where's My F*cking Latte" is a hilarious spin on the sensibility of young talent trying to make it in Hollywood. His wry, insider's view delivers observations laced with the same warmth I enjoyed in his other work (The Art of Surfacing, a different but equally rewarding read). I spent a hilarious Saturday afternoon at the nearest Starbuck's, passing around his book to patrons who wanted to know what I was reading when they heard me laughing out loud! I am giving copies of "Latte" to all of the smart young creative types on my holiday list!

This book is a hilarious (and terrifying) read for anyone who works in-- or wants to work in-- the entertainment industry. If there is a hell... these assistants have worked in it, and these stories will make your skin crawl!

I fell in love with Nemcoff's work when I started listening to "Number 1 with a bullet". So of course, I had to pick this book up. Not only because it is Nemcoff, but because I am a film student. Talk about eye opening! I have never laughed so hard before in my life- even with learning how weird Hollywood is. Nemcoff TOTALLY sheds light on the weirdest of the weird in this book with stories from a well known Celebrity getting drunk and beaten up in Mexico to the torrid toddler causing havoc in a office, and of course the director falling "in love" with one of his assiatants. The only downfall (if I could say there is one) is that, of course, the book does not name names...however it is fun to try guessing who the indivual stories refer too!

I've said before that I think Nemcoff is this generation's Frank Miller and this book proves it- that is if Miller was writing about Hollywood with no death.

Fan's of Brian Michael Bendis' book "Fortune and Glory" will totally get a kick out of this. Heck, ANYONE that is even thinking of working in this industry should pick this up. It should be required reading for all film students.

WARNING: do not drink/eat anything while reading this- you might choke because you are laughing to much (or dumbfounded/shocked by some of the stupidity displayed) that... and of course you wouldn't want to ruin your book.

Only question I got, is when are we going to see the sequal?

There are voices, and then there are voices. You think you've heard all of the stories from the slimy underbelly of the entertainment capitol of the world. You haven't. Not even close. Mark Yoshimoto Nemcoff was uniquely positioned to provide some of the best anecdotes from the life of a Hollywood Assistant. What I love most about Nemcoff is his "writers voice", i.e. you know when you are reading a Nemcoff book. Sharp, punchy and tightly written "Where's My Fn Latte" is a must read pretty much for anyone West of the Rockies who is in the entertainment industry or knows someone who is. It should be issued as a handbook to any young production assistant as a training manual. As far as everyone East of the Rockies, you should read it too, just to thank your lucky stars that you have nothing to do with the craziness that is Hollywood. Highly, highly recommended.

I enjoyed the stories of the various overbearing hollywood execs, revenge of some assistants, bloated egos, and even the occasional delightfully disgusting quirks of both assistant and employer.

The stories in this book have one thing in common... wretched excess! It's amazing what a little power and influence will do to a person. Of course this book doesn't name names. These are folks that would sue you in a heartbeat if they thought you said something critical about them. Actually that makes it more fun. It's not too hard to figure out who some of these people are :-) This is a book about wealthy, privileged, self important people, being exposed, and even occasionally getting what they deserve. Both thumbs up.

Sometimes I want something to read that doesn't get too detailed. I don't want to have to think, I just want to be entertained. This is certainly the book for that exact purpose. First and foremost, it's actually a compilation of stories from different people so some of the stories seem more random than others. Second, I couldn't stop laughing my head off at the shenanigans these assistants get caught up in. To be honest, there were at least several of the stories that left me in disbelief and I questioned how valid those events truly were. Nonetheless, you will be at least partly entertained. I still pop open this book whenever I need some light reading to put a smile on my face.
