From MTM to NBC June 15 2000
By Stan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This book is the story of Grant Tinker, from his rise from a junior executive at NBC in 1949 to his rise to the presidency of the peacock network after the resignation of Fred Silverman in 1981. This book chronicles the television industry through the eyes of one of its own major players. It is a very good book for those who wish to become executives in the fast going world of television. He goes into great detail over his personal life with Mary Tyler Moore and his involvement into the MTM Enterprises programs, and his years as president of NBC and his ventures after he left NBC in 1986. This book is a must read for anybody who loves the history of television or would like to work in television.

informative Nov. 1 2005
By Steven C. Wiggins - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
tinker gives a good overview of the sitcom era of the 70s, however, it is a bit whiny.
