It was enjoyable hearing about his relationship with the various artists over the years and his work at Columbia Records
No, this one was too drawn out as it was.
Clive Davis was an individual who apparently has been in the right place at the right time most of his life. He is a quintessential businessman who followed his intuition and passion.
The concepts put forth are insightful, relevant and thought provoking. Anyone who has worked the twelve steps may appreciate his viewpoint. Anyone who has not, might be a little mystified. The reader begins to sound a bit unctuous at times when over emphasizing a point.

A slight tendency towards overdramatizing the content.

Would like to hear more from this author
If the author would depart for just a bit from speaking in the vernacular. Not everyone can follow him past the third sentence. If they can, they will probably find this book enlightening
Perhaps, but not as Ray Kurzweil
Not that I can recall
Not a novices entry point.
The material was convincingly disearnest.He makes many half-baked observations which rail against artists, music and mores that are at times valid, but build into a crescendo of tirades that annoyed me. When peppered with expletives, this only pushes decent people away (even when his tongue is firmly planted in his cheek). So you are angry...Try impressing me with some cadence that doesn't hang on the coattails of Dennis Miller or George Carlin.They made points by having us appreciate the irony of a seeming infallibile viewpoint, and then stepping back and laughing at themselves. This was not an inclusive listening experience.Carolla is probably most effective in live performances where the competition is keen, and the rule of the jungle applies.Here in this venue ,it does not.
