From the Back Cover:

"A hilarious, insightful, and thoroughly entertaining book -- one that takes you behind the false glamour and glitz the public knows and welcomes you into the dank boiler room below where the real work of Hollywood is done by those who stoke the furnace. This is an intimate conversation over endless cups of coffee with screenwriters of all generations, a candid and privileged glimpse at the whole crazy zen tapestry of what we do...the pains, the joys, and the absurdities of our trade." -Frank Darabont, writer/dirctor - The Shawshank Redemption, The Green Mile

?Doing It For Money is a smart, funny, sad, triumphant book about writing, about the joys and concerns of writing, about the impossibility of writing, about writing. Daryl Nickens has gathered together astute, witty, intensely real essays by our very best screenwriters and offered them up for our delectation. This is a book for anyone who has ever written for money and for everyone who hasn't.? -Howard A. Rodman Professor and Chair - Division of Writing School of Cinema-Television - University of Southern California

Doing It For Money provides a "behind-the-scenes" look at Hollywood through the eyes and pens of 48 top screenwriters. Personal, provocative essays take the reader on a wild ride through the terror, backstabbing, idiocy and triumph that go hand in hand with writing for movies and TV.

There's also a treasure trove of insider advice on how to beat the system and avoid the pitfalls inherent in writing and selling a script.

Doing It For Money: a unique view for pros and fans alike!
