Publisher's Summary

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."

Best book ever.

Doesn't even matter that it's fictional. You will learn more about the biz in this than a semester at UCLA.

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.

Solid Gold!

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.
