I hope this is okay to post here... it wasn't wishlisted here so I thought I'd just give it to someone :)


Was actually a really good book!




Paralyzed from the neck down, Gordon Zahler rose from his deathbed to a fast-talking, Hollywood entrepreneur/idea man who traveled the world, lived hard, married, fantasized about water-skiing, and chased his dreams to create one of the largest independent postproduction shops in Hollywood.

While this is Chip Jacobs' story about coming to grips with his deformed uncle, himself, and his mother, the silent victim to Gordon's recklessness, Wheeling the Deal is also a tip of the hat to the man who turned his back on the notion of "I can't."
