I read this book in the 1980's. Loaned it out and thought I would
never see it again. Thank you Amazon! Mad Men ain't got nothing
on Chucky!

I had read bits and pieces of this book, and wanted to read the whole story. I couldn't put it down! Andrew Tobias goes way behind the scenes to capture the man who was Revlon; the biggest and most flamboyantly-run cosmetics empire...before Estee Lauder , there was Charles Revson and Revlon. He was loathed, feared, repudiated and sometimes admired---the stories in this book are almost surreal in content. It is a lesson in history and how things used to be; before all of the politically-correct manure that passes for advertising in today's world. I strongly recommend this book; characters like Charles Revson do not exist anymore; they are, though, part of the American folklore and what Madison Avenue and the really big corporations used to be. It's How to Succeed in Business by Really Trying!

Re-reading this after all these years is pure nosalgia for me. Dated but more fun than a more measured bio.

I was pleasantly surprised when Amazon sent me a hard cover version of this book rather than paperback. Thank you. It was a very good read.
