Errors detract from the story,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Squeeze (Paperback)
I bough this book on the recommendation of a colleague but he did warn me about there being many errors. It's a great concept and the focus on people is a nice touch as it personalises what is a fascinating industry. However I wouldn't recommend this book without a substantial revision.
I have been in the business for 30 years and know some of the characters described - one of two of them quite well. The rather sensational descriptions of personalities and motivations are a stretched in places. If Tom Bower gets his description of them wrong and then couples that with multiple (and I mean multiple) innacuracies with facts then how much faith can I have in he bits I'm less familiar with.
A missed opportunity.
