Product description

Review

"Goodman builds a fascinating narrative. Bronfman emerges as, if not a hero, arguably a mighty interesting anti-hero."

--Steve Weinberg, USA Today

"The book is a biography and a gimlet-eyed look at the music business, the dark side of the Internet, and the future of pop music. It succeeds on every level...Goodman's writing soars..."

--Bruce Ward, Ottawa Citizen

"Fortunes Fool reads like a Greek tragedy.... the boardroom intrigues are laid out clearly, making them easy to understand. What emerges is a fascinating tale of good intentions, bad luck, and the affirmation of the corporate maxim--eat or be eaten."
--Blogcritics.org
