    Warren Littlefield was the NBC President of Entertainment who oversaw the Peacock Network’s rise from also-ran to a division that generated a billion dollars in profits. In this fast-paced and exceptionally entertaining oral history, Littlefield and NBC luminaries including Jerry Seinfeld, Jason Alexander, Kelsey Grammer, Matt LeBlanc, Lisa Kudrow, Julianna Marguiles, Anthony Edwards, Noah Wylie, Debra Messing, Jack Welch, Jimmy Burrows, Helen Hunt, and Dick Wolf vividly recapture the incredible era of Must See TV.

    Story

    The best part of this is the sort of business school-like case studies about managing creative ventures in the totally irrational marketplace of show business. It's a series of brief interviews from different vantage points.

    It's not deep, nor thorough, slightly self serving, but I was entertained and it went by really quick. I recommend it.

    Bob Balaban does a really solid read.

  • Death of the Liberal Class

    Chris Hedges examines the failure of the liberal class to confront the rise of the corporate state and the consequences of a liberalism that has become profoundly bankrupted. Hedges argues that there are five pillars of the liberal establishment and that each of these institutions has sold out the constituents it represented. In doing so, the liberal class has become irrelevant to society at large and ultimately the corporate power elite they once served.

    M. Levine says: "Devastating analysis....."
    "Intense & sobering, I couldn't stop."

    Story

    Excellent historical references and perspective. Puts so many things of I was aware into a deeper, more complete context. Well researched and devastating work.

    This is the kind of writing from which philosophies are born.
