Schmucks With Underwoods

I believe I've mentioned Marc Norman's What Happens Next, but I haven't said what an excellent book it is. It's the story of Hollywood screenwriting, but really it's a history of Hollywood through the prism of screenwriters. If it has a weakness, it's that the book starts to run out of steam in recent times when the story becomes much more familiar.

I'd say it's the best book in its genre, but really it's the only book of its kind.
