“Sleepless in Hollywood” book review – Lynda Obst


I can’t imagine anyone who has not been impacted in the past 20 years by two main things: globalization and the internet.

For some reason, one of the industries that would not have immediately come to my mind as having changed a lot is Hollywood. However, after reading this book, I’ve realized how totally naive I’ve been. With the rise and fall of DVD income, the increase in distribution outlets like cable and Netflix, the huge increase in movie revenues coming internationally, and other issues, the Hollywood of today will never again resemble the Hollywood of the ’80’s and before.

I found this to be a very informative read looking at the business side of Hollywood and how it has changed over the years.
