Terrrific bookReviewed in the United States on November 25, 2012
Frank Rose's book really delivers a fascinating history of William Morris. It's not about the stars as much as the men (and women) who helped make the stars -- the "star-making machinery" as Joni Mitchell sang in "Free Man in Paris," her ode to David Geffen, himself one of the William Morris men who, incidentally, became a star himself. The Agency is substantial stuff -- and it was a full on inspiration for my own book, The Mailroom, which came later, and covered the Wm Morris Agency in part. Classic stuff, this book.

Show Business HistoryReviewed in the United States on September 25, 2018
This is the history of show business for the last 100 years. Well presented and well documented you will learn so much about the inter workings of show business plus fascinating history of many show business greats. Examples: Marilyn Monroe was a hooker. Milton Berle was a flasher.
A history of the entertainment industry from the WM agency's bird's eye perspective.Reviewed in the United States on July 6, 2014
I worked at the William Morris Agency in Beverly Hills in the early 80's and this is a clear and concise history of WWA over the decades. It's accurate, entertaining and will give the reader a bird's eye view of the whole entertainment industry over the years since it the power broker agents that put all the deals together.
