Where's My F-cking Latte? (and Other Stories About Being an Assistant in Hollywood) Audible – Unabridged

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?
Instead, imagine only the scene from "Swimming with Sharks" in which the agent tearfully tells of the time his wife was gang-raped and murdered, and left beside a busy street in Los Angeles while the uncaring rolled past during yet another rush hour. That was the bleakest scene in the movie, aside from the ending.
This book is nothing but that scene, over and over again, with a bit of urban legend laced throughout and some crude porn thrown in in a lazy attempt to keep the reader turning the pages. I turned the pages looking for something like I had been expecting, and never found it.
Included in this book are these stories, and others like them: A man is orally raped at gunpoint. A dog licks an assistant's backside while the assistant passive aggressively enacts a petty revenge on their boss by having sex in the boss' bed. Two young women go for a weekend in Tijuana and are never heard from again; we are informed they were likely trafficked and will end up 'being cut into pieces alive and fed to dogs.' An assistant's grandparent dies and their boss' cat is eaten by a coyote. It just goes on and on and on like that.
I began to doubt the veracity of any of it by about the third story.Read more ›

It was just okay. Somewhat amusing in spots, but mostly just mindless and boring. Kind of like the stuff you'd read in those supermarket check stand magazines.Published 1 month ago by Amazon Customer
Most stories were entertaining. A couple I skimmed over because it didn't hold my interest. Overall a good read on a car trip or when you want to read some funny stuff.Published 4 months ago by Kimberly
I gave this book 2 stars instead of my initial 1 star because it wasn't what I was expecting. I think I would have enjoyed the book a little more if it was one continuous story,... Read morePublished 5 months ago by Marie Tenny
