Description for Powerhouse: The Untold Story of Hollywood's Creative Artists Agency

Review

Powerhouse delivers a chronicle of vaunting ambition, immense wealth and power, and personal betrayal all the more astonishing in a business ostensibly built on loyalty and trust… Even more impressive is Miller’s ability to get nearly everyone involved not only to talk but also go on the record.” (New York Times Book Review)

“Magisterial. ... One of the two most important books about the business of entertainment to come out in 2016. ... A must read for anyone who wants to work in Hollywood or just know how Hollywood works.” (The Hollywood Reporter)

“It’s dishy. It’s like People Magazine meets ‘The Godfather.’ It’s like nothing else. I ate it up.” (New York Post)

“Eminently readable and moves at a fast pace thanks to dozens of fascinating celebrity stories.” (Mashable)

“The year’s hottest Hollywood tell-all.” (New York Daily News)

“Probably the most hotly anticipated book since Julia Phillips’s tell-all YOU’LL NEVER EAT LUNCH IN THIS TOWN AGAIN dropped more than two decades ago.” (Variety)

“[F]un to read both for the boldface names - including agency founders Michael Ovitz and Ron Meyer, and clients like Magic Johnson and Ali MacGraw - and for a glimpse into a largely unseen world of cultural influencers.” (The National Book Review)

From the Back Cover

An astonishing—and astonishingly entertaining—history of Creative Artists Agency, from the #1 bestselling co-author of Live from New York and Those Guys Have All the Fun.

The movies you watch, the TV shows you adore, the concerts and sporting events you attend—behind the curtain of nearly all of these is an immensely powerful and secretive corporation known as Creative Artists Agency. Started in 1975, when five bright and brash employees of a creaky William Morris office left to open their own, strikingly innovative talent agency, CAA would come to revolutionize the entertainment industry, and over the next several decades its tentacles would spread aggressively throughout the worlds of movies, television, music, advertising, and investment banking.

Powerhouse is the fascinating, no-holds-barred saga of that ascent. Drawing on unprecedented and exclusive access to the men and women who built and battled with CAA, as well as financial information never before made public, author James Andrew Miller spins a tale of boundless ambition, ruthless egomania, ceaseless empire building, drugs, sex, greed, and personal betrayal. It is also a story of prophetic brilliance, magnificent artistry, singular genius, entrepreneurial courage, strategic daring, foxhole brotherhood, and how one firm utterly transformed the entertainment business.

Here are the real Star Wars—complete with a Death Star—told through the voices of those who were there. Packed with scores of stars from movies, television, music, and sports, as well as a tremendously compelling cast of agents, studio executives, network chiefs, league commissioners, private equity partners, tech CEOs, and media tycoons, Powerhouse is itself a Hollywood blockbuster of the most spectacular sort.
