This book was written by Peter's second wife and she slants the narrative in Peter's favor when in real life he may not have been a particularly likeable guy. He comes off as arrogant and spoiled. There is however some great information about the studio system and early Hollywood that makes this book great source of information. This book covers the studio system and all that was going on around Peter during his movie making years and it seems to be well researched information.
