The Disaster Artist is a book written by Greg Sestero and Tom Bissell. If you are familiar with Greg Sestero, you know he stared in Tommy Wiseau’s film (I use the term loosely) The Room. This novel is a tell all of the behind the scenes of the making of the movie.

A little background about The Room, it is one of the best bad movies ever made. For those who have seen it, they know how horrid the acting and story line is. The irony here is that it became so popular because of the flaws. Flaws like inconsistent scenes, dubbed voices, characters, camera angles, etc.

Greg Sestero met the writer, director, producer and actor of The Room, Tommy Wiseau in an acting class. Greg and Tommy have an odd couple type friendship that is detailed in the book. The story’s about Tommy are both hilarious and dark at times. If you have seen The Room and know it’s reputation, this is a great read.
