Backstabbing, manupulation, money, power, sex, parties, drugs, Clive Davis, David Geffen, Walter Yenikkof, and so much more. . . By FAR one of the best books I've read. This is like a movie styled account of the behind ths scenes powermoves and power players of the music business up until about the early 90's. Any one who is intrigued by entertainment, artists, executives and powerstruggles should read this. ( )

Book description
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0679730613, Paperback)

A nauseatingly honest and therefore controversial expose of the base beings that inhabit the higher levels of the music industry. Filled with horror stories that will confirm your worst suspicions about the toxicity of what my friends and I call "Planet CD Wood."
