Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

An Amazon Best Book of August 2016: When Powerhouse first crossed my desk I was mildly intrigued with the idea of getting an inside look at the Creative Arts Agency, which has come to represent some of the biggest names in Hollywood and beyond. Then I read fifty pages and was totally hooked. I’m not even familiar with all the players—though of course names like Tom Cruise and Michael Ovitz jumped right out—but it didn’t matter because their anecdotes about the people and personalities who re-wrote the rule book on how agents work with their celebrity clients are completely addicting. There are stories of overblown egos and overindulgence, brilliant strategy and crushing betrayal—this is a no-holds-barred account of five decades of Hollywood’s movers and shakers told by the people who lived it. Whether you’re an avid movie goer or only watched the Academy Awards when Tina Fey was hosting, Powerhouse is a front row seat to the building of an entertainment industry icon in all its garish glory. And it’s nearly impossible to look away. --Seira Wilson, The Amazon Book Review

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)
