A riveting, barnstorming, thrilling ride through the loud, lively and all-embracing world of the modern media conglomerates - its key deals, dealmakers, divas and delusions. The global media industry has never been more powerful. And there is no more astute, forthright and entertaining chronicler of this roller-coaster world than award-winning writer Michael Wolff. In `Autumn of the Moguls', a funny, frank, and incendiary account that looks hard at the great characters of this media age - from homes and gardens empress Martha Stewart to Disney czar Michael Eisner - he has written the guide we all need to the media, a world that is often more entertaining than what it produces.

Reviews for Autumn of the Moguls: My Misadventures with the Titans, Poseurs, and Money Guys Who Mastered and Messed Up Big Media

Michael Wolff can certainly schmooze with the best of them. Throughout this hilarious, merciless dissection of America's media he manages to gain invites to some of Manhattan's most exclusive parties, rubbing shoulders with the rich and powerful. However, this is no sycophantic tribute: Woolf outlines the damaging consequences of corporate control of the media, and the concentration of power in just a few hands. Along the way, there are portraits of key figures such as Rupert Murdoch and Martha Stewart, and while Woolf is ultimately bleak about the future of journalism in such a profit-obsessed climate, his writing is anything but depressing. Indeed, his punchy, irreverent style invites obvious comparisons with Tom Wolfe. This extended paperback edition includes an interview with the author and, somewhat bizarrely, a list of his ten favourite books. (Kirkus UK)
