Cox is a very funny and self-deprecating writer and speaker, as those who saw Moviedrome will remember. This book covers the scripting, production and release of each of his films in turn (missing his Alan Smithee film, The Winner). For those who are familiar with his career, it's fascinating to hear how they came to be. My only serious gripe is the scope of the book. Since it only covers the films that got made, there are large gaps in the coverage of Cox's career and some stories, like his involvement in Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, would be interesting to hear from his perspective. Possibly there are legal reasons why that tale is missing, though. ( )
