Ari Gold, after years of dominating the Hollywood agency scene, finally offers invaluable tips and advice on how to be as successful in work and in life as Gold himself.
Ari Gold is known for his ruthless approach to deal-making and client relationships that made him one of, if not the, most powerful and sought-after agents in Hollywood until he retired in 2011. In his new book The Gold Standard, Gold will illuminate, for the first time, his unique, effective, and some would say, outrageous philosophies on running a successful business, client management, employee motivation, keeping a happy home life, and other keys to his many successes. Brash, emphatic, instructive, and always wise, Gold's audiobook will rival business and leadership best sellers the world over. In his own words and with his trademark enthusiasm, Gold's tome will be the only book anyone wanting to make something of himself or herself will ever need.
Ari Gold says: "In my humble opinion, if you want to run a successful business this is the only book you'll ever have to read. And my humble opinion is never wrong."

Great concept. Wasn't totally sure what to expect, but this was first class. JEREMY PIVEN on the mic, lays out some true gems. Ari Gold sideline stories, carry you right to the end zone. Great Audible read.
Jeremy Piven narrates this awesome book in character! If you haven't seen the show, you'd still find this book clever, humorous, and entertaining. If you know the show and the characters, you will love this audio book.
Loved it can't wait for the entourage movie premiere on June 3rd! Jeremy Piven did a great job! Kudos kid
I don't know what the signature does.
Perhaps I didn't like this book because I didn't watch Entourage. Someone recommended this book to me, I can't remember who (sorry). I was hoping for an entertaining abrasive fictional take on "How to Win Friends and Influence People."
There's a bunch of mistakes in the narration, it's like it was done in 1 take. The author didn't even proof read the script, he struggles through sentences quite a few times.
At one point they are talking about Tulip Mania, a speculative asset bubble. The narrator pronounced it as "spectacular asset"... Mistakes like that all through.
Obviously this isn't a serious book so I wasn't expecting any real nuggets.
I wasn't even entertained by the stories he tells because they are all made up. (I know most stories are)
It's one of the strangest books I ever read... A fictional agent telling his story using real celebrities, giving offensive and ridiculous advice for how to live your life...sounds like something I would love.
But I didn't. I struggled to get through the last half...not recommended. The character doesn't translate from the screen to book format very well.
Skip this, listen to a podcast or watch netflix instead.
A lot of the knowledge Jeremy liven drops on you in this book is valuable, it's not just a bs book. But what really makes it kill is his narration. He does a wonderful job portraying the character in full color, even ad-libbing at multiple points throughout the reading. I recommend this book to anyone who enjoyed the show "Entourage" or wants to work as a talent agent or manager.
