If you wanted to know more about the in-jokes from within the publishing industry, this book is for you! You guessed it! It's one of those 'Ha-ha-ha' books that makes fun of novelists, editors and the publishers! And all is in good fun!

I almost wanted to give this book 3 stars due to the lack of depth in those stories, but the entertainment value is undeniably huge so I upgraded it into 3.8 stars.

*4.5 Stars
