Sally Bedell Smith discusses In All His Glory: The Life of William S. Paley : The Legendary Tycoon and His Brilliant Circle.

Former New York Times media reporter, Sally Bedell Smith, discussed her new book, In All His Glory: The Life of William S. Paley: The Legendary Tycoon and His Brilliant Circle. The nearly 800-page biography, composed from 700 interviews, chronicles Mr. Paley's start as the son of a Russian Jewish immigrant through his rise to the top after creating CBS television network.
