This is Bruce's auto-bio in a nutshell. From his youth to his latest misadventures in the acting world. Mostly this covers before his time in Burn Notice. But it does let people learn all about the man that is Bruce Campbell. Dry wit and wry humor make this a good read about those who life is on the big and small screen.

It breaks down the 4th wall and lets people see the bad side of Hollyweird that Bruce was exposed to and kept himself smartly away from. While he's a "B" movie actor, thanks to Sam Raimi his star has risen and will be remembered as an amazing talent without the whole horror of being into drugs or other outlandish scandals that seem to rock the world of actors. This lets people know that acting is a tough gig and you have to sell your self to get to the top.

Bruce, like Mr. T and Jerry Doyle show that he has a strong and professional work ethic that got him where he is today without being a total sellout or falling through the cracks. While his name isn't a "A" lister like many other phonies in Hollyweird, Bruce still gets the fans attention and respect where ever he goes. He also shows that he's just a regular schlub like his fans which make them love him even more. I say if your curious about the inside life of acting pick up Bruce Campbell and try to follow his act as a "good actor" in Hollyweird.
