On… the CAA book Leave a reply When I first started trying to be a screenwriter, I read everything I could about Hollywood and the entertainment industry, because you can live your whole life looking at cars and have no idea how the engine works, right? I wanted – no, I needed – to know how the engine worked. Anyway, I’ve written about this before, and I’ve read a dozen other books since that post – but I just read a DOOZY. Powerhouse: The Untold Story of CAA. This book is DELICIOUS. Read it, if you like reading about Los Angeles and raw ambition and grown men being whiny little bitches about each other. I’m with APA. And I love my agent. But I also love, just a teeny weeny bit, Ron Meyer in the 70s. C’mon. The tan! The hair! The glasses! You totally would.
