Product description


‘Apparently trivial, then segues into saying something original and profound about contemporary American society. He’s fearless in a way you don't often find among hacks today, chopping away at the legs of the most powerful men and women of our era like a jungle scout with a machete. He’s also very funny. When he’s on top form, he’s as good as Tom Wolfe.’ Toby Young, Books of the Year, Observer

‘Michael Wolff has been throwing custard pies at the rich and powerful since he was appointed New York magazine’s media columnist in 1998. “Autumn of the Moguls” is his greatest hits…he’s the Alexander Pope of the mogul set. If you had to have dinner with the most powerful journalists and businessmen in America – and Wolff describes just such a ghastly occasion in Chapter 22 – he’s the man you'd want to sit next to.’ Spectator

‘“Autumn of the Moguls” makes the 1 per cent grade of business literature that transcend the dutifully competent or ambitiously inept. A stylish writer of enormous wit, Wolff chooses an epic theme and writes with an incisiveness which not only makes you laugh but also demonstrates truths about business remarkably well.’ Observer

‘You should read this book. It is funny and extremely clever.’ New Statesman

‘A slice of heaven…Wolff’s talent is for taking a big idea and whacking it at you with added spin. Witty as well as hugely entertaining, provocative, sharp and spitefully funny. It is, most of all, a snapshot of an extraordinary time in the American media.’ Guardian

‘A hyperbolic and brilliantly truthful description of the creation of the media world…very funny.’ Daily Telegraph

‘Undeniably good.’ Financial Times

‘Clever, amusing, entertaining.’ Sunday Telegraph


A blistering, dramatic, bittersweet portrait of the global media industry -- its key deals, dealmakers, divas and delusions. The global media industry has never been more powerful. And there is no more astute, forthright and entertaining chronicler of this roller-coaster world than award-winning writer Michael Wolff. In Autumn of the Moguls, a funny, frank, and incendiary account that looks hard at the great characters of this media age -- from homes and gardens empress Martha Stewart to Disney czar Michael Eisner -- he has written the guide we all need to the media, a world that is often more entertaining than what it produces.
