    Much has been written about Tommy Mottola, one of the most powerful, visionary, and successful executives in the history of the music industry. He discovered, developed and launched the careers of many superstars, including Mariah Carey, Celine Dion, Shakira, Jennifer Lopez, and Gloria Estefan, and is credited with creating the "Latin Explosion". He has had the privilege of working alongside Bruce Springsteen, Billy Joel, Bob Dylan, Beyonce, Michael Jackson, Barbara Streisand, the Dixie Chicks, Pearl Jam, Aerosmith, Tony Bennett, and Ozzy Osbourne, among other music giants.

    Karl J. Wulff says: "Chazz Palminteri should stick to movies."
    "An honest and fascinating music-infused listen."

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to Hitmaker the most enjoyable?

    Without an actual soundtrack, the book managed to invoke emotions that a soundtrack is capable of by perfectly selected and well-placed song/artist mentions. I kept stopping the audio just to download songs.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Hitmaker?

    When Tommy Mottola described being a teenager away at miltary school, missing his girlfriend and his only enjoyment coming from listening alone at night to the seagull introduction to the Tyme's "So Much In Love", it captures how, even as a kid, he had an instinctive ability to identify which of a song's details could yield immeasurable impact.


    Have you listened to any of Chazz Palminteri’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Chazz Palminteri's narration lent an element of authenticity and soul to the story.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Didn't want the book to end so I stretched it out.


    Any additional comments?

    Still can't get the lyrics to "Cherchez la Femme" out of my head...
