Interesting comparison of two titans who came head to head in the entertainment industry. I disagree with maryfj, I did not find it one-sided at all. The author does slam each character, but does it in an equitable manner. The book is focused more on their rise to fame than the actual "Clash", it left me wanting more recent information, but the history of each one of the titans is interesting nonetheless. Very good reader. I recommend.
