    Well, this was deeply disappointing. This book is long on information about the author's life but short on details about the actual goings-on at the club itself. Case in point; the wildly extravagant 16th birthday party Calvin Klein threw for his daughter Marci was summed up in about 4 paragraphs in a page and a half. There was no sense of having been there, no drawing the reader into the world of Studio at all. Descriptions were modest and utilitarian and ever story seemed to end too soon as th Well, this was deeply disappointing.

Descriptions were modest and utilitarian and ever story seemed to end too soon as though the author was bored by the telling. While this may be a true insider view, it isn't much of a view at all.

    This book just showed up in my Kindle. I didn't order it. I have no interest in reading it. I don't know why or how it ended up there but I did make absolutely sure I wasn't paying for it. The last thing I need is to actually contribute money to this type of trash. I would have much rather have completely ignored this book and everything it recalls. But since it somehow imposed itself on my life a I figured I would turn around and "impose" the one star I am certain I would rate it if I ever did This book just showed up in my Kindle.

But since it somehow imposed itself on my life a I figured I would turn around and "impose" the one star I am certain I would rate it if I ever did bother to read this nonsense. Now, rant over. It is time to go back to reading real books that have some legitimate entertainment and/or educational value.

    I thought this would be about the Schrager/Rubel year’s, but this still had lots of glamor and fun. Does take, like, way too fucking long to get to the point though. Eventually all the sexual exploit stuff becomes a little repetitive.

    Received through FirstReads... I have some mixed feelings about this book. I think I expected something a bit more exciting, and this took a bit to get going. The best parts of this book were the anecdotes about celebrities. I have to say that the rest tended to be kind of repetitive, and if you believe everything the author says about himself, then he's better at everything than anyone else, ever. I guess I'm saying there was no lack of ego here. Received through FirstReads... I have some mixed feelings about this book.

    The cost of the party A look into Studio 54 how the strong survive. Drugs, sex,decadence among the in crowd. Found the book very unsettling. The owner/author contributed drugs and perversion and tries to convey that the majority of patrons extracted a better life due to 54. Sorry to contribute to Mark Fleischman ego by purchasing this book. What he has contributed to society other than the constant party host leaves much to be desired.

    THIS IS A HORRIBLE BOOK If you enjoy reading insipid books about Studio 54 after THIS NAME DROPPER OH SO COOL HIPSTER SWINGER BOUGHT THE CLUB, be my guest. It's AWFUL. He should have just called it "I THINK I WAS COOL ONCE BUT NOW I'M OLD." Nothing is cool or new in this book unless you slept through the 80's, even then, could this guy love himself more? Boring and if I could give it negative stars I would.

    Basically a story of sex, drugs and rock and roll. Fleischman didn't give much in the way of juicy details, often alluding to people as "a prominent socialite" or "an A-list actor," so if you go into this expecting lots of secrets, you won't get it. What you do get is his history in hotel/restaurant management, his reign at Studio 54 and his subsequent trips to rehab. Not a bad read, a little tedious in spots. I expected a bit more.

    A bit much and over-the-top but then so was the nightclub. A fun speed read I guess. The most impressive part of the book was the fact he was able to get sober and live a normal life later considering the insane amount of alcohol and drugs he consumed. It's also impressive that he's still alive. He must have had a good doctor and/or good genes. A bit much and over-the-top but then so was the nightclub. A fun speed read I guess.

    This book was more about the author. Most highlights were sex and drugs. He really, really liked Rick James. Dude was/is quite pompous. Not really about Studio 54 as a club so much as it was about Mark the second owner who just rode in after the party was almost over anyway. Lots of info on his business ventures.

    Well, it was an informative read on Fleischman’s life. I was often embarrassed for him (and his family). Quite a lot of bad behavior, illegal activity and intimate details. I am not sure how many of those details were needed, how many people wanted their bad behavior outed and how he would feel if his children and grandchildren were to read it. But it was entertaining.

    Quite possibly the worst book I've read in a long, long time. It's less about Studio 54's history, "real" story, or place in the New York nightlife scene or an era, in fact, Studio 54 is a bit player in a book that is a memoir of Fleischman's life. All you get is his own braggadocio about the mostly C list celebrities he's met and partied with, the drugs he took and the bimbos he bedded.

    It wasn't a bad book, but the author named dropped a little to much for my liking. It wasn't a bad book, but the author named dropped a little to much for my liking.

    I didn't think it was possible to make a boring story about Studio 54. It is. I didn't think it was possible to make a boring story about Studio 54. It is.

    The book brings home the self absobed meaningless life of celebrity culture. Does anyplace sound less attractive than Studio 54 in the late 70s ealy 80s.

    The subtitle does not disappoint....this book is filled with sex and drugs. Perfect for when you want a salacious trashy read. Not particularly well written, but the celebrity dirt makes up for it.
