Stumbled upon this gem and devoured it in a day. Countless, fascinating anecdotes, recounted with humility and balance, provide a glimpse of what life was like for some in Old Hollywood. It is not a gossip book. It is much more. I finished the last page wishing for still more stories knowing Scotty has them, yet grateful for the look behind the curtain. Highly recommended. Look forward to the new documentary.

What can one say about Scotty Bowers? From his early days setting up tricks at a gas station in California to his 88 years of still pimping today. What this book reveals is that Scotty Bowers in my view is a classic sociopath who is bi-sexual. He has managed to cross paths with the Hollywood elite and as a result has many friends.
He has several serious relationships with women and had one daughter who dies from a botched abortion. We learn some of the fetishes of Tyrone Power and Charles Laughton that are nauseatingly described by Scotty.
The book was an easy read and what it reveals is information that we've already known about the gay community and its famous stars, i.e., Rock Hudson, Cary Grant, James Dean and many others. There's nothing new except that Scotty tells his story with a straight face while still turning tricks. The amazing thing about Full Service is that Scotty has managed to stay healthy while others have succumbed to Aids.

Who cares if we wonder off into the memories of an old man. Who cares if youy've heard some of these. Scotty Bowers thank you for your adventures.

Even if only 10% of what Bowers says is true, he has still lived the life of 1,000 men.

i easily felt admiration for scotty's unjudgemental good-spirited nature regarding the pure enjoyment of sex sans vulgarity; some of his anecdotes seem exaggerated but whether so or not didn't detract from the pleasure of reading the reporting

Subject matter is interesting, but is it fact or autobiographical fiction? I personally have to withhold belief on the Tracy-Hepburn claims. My main complaint is with the writing. Organization of the material is great, but as for the presentation, I found that much of it clearly reflected independent research done by the co-author. So the first-person telling did not ring quite true to me.

Scotty Bowers has an enormous ego. Pretty much a lot about "me, Me, Me" Some surprises but who cares.
