Loved the non-Star trek stories.
I enjoyed this book; did you know that Mr. Meyer was the person who brought us "The Day After" a TV movie highlighting what would happen after nuclear weapons are released? This book is mostly about how he was able to get that movie into production. Oh, there are some mentions of Star Trek along the way--but so much more!!
I am usually not all that interested in the Hollywood scene, but I always did enjoy the Star Trek saga, be it TV or movies. So this book was a voyage into the workings and politics of making two of the movies as well as a biography of the author. His sense of humor was a welcome part of the book, but at times I got bogged down in the references in the text to other movies, actors, and associations. While this may be to some an enhancement of the subject, personally I find it distracting and interruption in the flow of the narrative. So that comment is not critical, just that, a comment. The book did nudge me to get both of the movies from the library and I viewed them with a different perspective. Over all, a well written book that describes a look back into what the movie industry used to be, and a glimpse into how it has morphed into the world of today.
Another good beach book is this one I enjoyed about making movies. The author is also responsible, in part, for the best of the Star Trek movies. (ok, I'm a Trekkie). Mr. Meyer's book is like a listening to a witty dinner party guest tell good Hollywood stories.
A good view of Star Trek from a directors point of view.
