    Five stars if you like hollywood and ari gold (the fictional character from the series entourage that was built after ari emanuel) Four if you just like hollywood. Some of these stories read like parts of an entourage scripr, but with a strong focus on agency.

    A stellar history of CAA, which struck fear into Hollywood during the 80's - 90's. Tracks Ovitz & his partners' defection from Wm Morris to found the agency that would take packaging to a high art. The sheer power of these people was astounding!
