Who Is Michael Ovitz?

Michael Ovitz

This fascinating book delves into the life and career of Michael Ovitz, co-founder of Creative Artists Agency. He revolutionized the role of the agent, shaped the careers of countless A-list stars and directors, and became the most powerful person in Hollywood. But this personal history is more than just bare-knuckled deal-making - it's an underdog's story of how Ovitz worked his way up from the William Morris mailroom to become a powerhouse in producing, advertising, mergers & acquisitions, and modern art. This blistering, unforgettable memoir tells his whole story.
