Editorial Reviews

Television pioneer Norman Lear's old-word charm is in clear evidence during his conversation with BusinessWeek Editor-in-Chief Stephen Adler. The Emmy Award-winning creator and producer of All in the Family, Maude, Sanford and Son, and The Jeffersons, Lear talks about his career and the challenges of social activism in television, as well as his work as a philanthropist. With his charming and confiding tone, Lear warms up the audience with his anecdotes, including ones on the networks' reaction to All in the Family and on Mickey Rooney being cast as Archie Bunker.
