He stole air force fighter jets for joy rides. He brought two full-grown lions into a meeting at MGM to show them how to make pictures that really roared. He fed a tab of acid to a studio executive before she read his script, then watched her chase the letters as they flew around the room after lifting off her pages. He sent his scripts to be read in a box with 100 ping pong balls with the note: “Hopefully now you have enough balls to read my material.”
 
David Garber, reveals the details of aspiring writer/producer Kevin Hartigan's journey from Boston to Hollywood. The reader will find out how Hartigan:
-raised the bar when he wasn't busy drinking at it,
-sniffed out deals when he wasn't snorting cocaine,
-pulled stunts and gags, whatever it took,
turned the entertainment capital into his playground, and
-by doing so, burned every bridge he crossed.
