This one is obviously most entertaining to aspiring filmmakers, but I think it would be pretty entertaining to the average reader, too. The majority of the book is the journal of filmmaker Robert Rodriguez (Desperado, Spy Kids, From Dusk Til Dawn) written while he was financing, filming, editing, and selling his first movie, El Mariachi. Rodriguez is a really likable guy, and you can tell he really cares about his movie (at the beginning of the book, he agrees to be a lab rat at a pharmaceutical company in order to finance his film). While his story is a definite one-in-a-million story (he doesn't mention in the book that he was a friend of a friend of a friend of the most powerful agent in Hollywood), but it's still inspiring. Most books, and well most people, tell you how you'll never make it as a filmmaker, this one makes you feel that it's within your reach if you work really hard for it.
