A lot like his previous book "Miracles and Massacres" except some of these stories are interconnected. I especially enjoyed reading the stories about Desi Arnez and Walt Disney (2 important icons that I grew up watching).
Not as many twists and turns as "Miracles and Massacres", so not as intense, but an enjoyable read none the less.
Gleen never fails to intertain me.
