Under Donny Deutsch leadership as Chairman & Chief Executive Officer of Deutsch Inc., the company has grown into the nation's premier cutting-edge advertising agency. Donny recently launched a hip and irreverent CNBC talk show, "The Big Idea with Donny Deutsch", which examines issues in pop culture, business, politics, the arts, and sports. He is also Managing Partner of the independent film production company Deutsch Open City. In presidential politics he was a lead member of the successful Clinton/Gore communications team. A graduate of the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania, Donny now serves on two prestigious boards: UPenn School of Social Work's Executive Committee and the Michael J. Fox Parkinson's Foundation's Board of Directors.

Having only first heard of Deutsch from the Apprentice last year, then his CNBC show shortly after, I found myself wanting to hear more about how he got started. The book is very good for anyone interested in hearing what Deutsch has to say. He's smart, creative and innovative. The reader does a great job - sounds just like Donny. Basically, he goes into his life in some detail, how he got started, his first big account, things he did wrong, his philosophy for doing things a certain way. I'd say it was inspiring somewhat. Not overwhelmingly inspiring, he doesn't give you tips on how to be successful or anything like that - just his way of doing things and his outlook on life.
Donny Deutch is a fascinating individual who gives readers a keen insight into how he built and managed an advertising empire! He is an outspoken liberal but is strangely enough a strong capitalist!
Donny Deutsch has a wonderful story to tell and for the most part does a good job except for the foul language. The crude language was not necessary and takes away from any inspiration that could have been communicated. I am a fan of great people and leaders. Donny's insecurities illustrate that he is not one of them.
