The Men Who Would Be King: An Almost Epic Tale of Moguls, Movies, and a Company Called DreamWorks, by Nicole LaPorte (NY Times)

“Jealousy wasn’t the only emotion Spielberg generated in those close to him. He also aroused feelings of protectiveness.” Her book is as much about the envious, ambivalent feelings with which insiders greet everything Spielberg does as it is about the Musketeer-like unity that Spielberg, Geffen and Katzenberg displayed throughout the fraught years of their historic venture.
Sounds like the above quote is about the most interesting observation in the book, which gets a resoundingly negative review from the NY Times. Guess we can take this one off our lists of things to read.
Read the full review here.
