Sinopsis:

In this compulsively readable oral history -- the debut book in the new Custom House imprint -- the co-author of the #1 bestseller Those Guys Have All the Fun and Live from New York takes on his biggest, most star-studded subject yet: Hollywood's most powerful and groundbreaking talent agency: CAA.

Powerhouse chronicles the revolutionary role that Hollywood's largest talent agency -- Creative Artists Agency -- has played in popular culture over the past five decades. Packed with scores of never before told stories and raw quotes that have made James Andrew Miller's previous two books major bestsellers, Powerhouse covers fifty years of Hollywood history and all facets of the agency itself, including film, television, sports, music, business and marketing, and its relationship with private equity giant TPG.

Based on exhaustive investigative reporting and hundreds of interviews -- including the CAA founders and current leadership, studio presidents, network chiefs, producers, directors, stars, musicians, athletes, current and former agents, along with competitors at other agencies -- Powerhouse offers vivid, personal, and revealing details about how CAA truly operates and why it has played such a critical role in shaping every aspect of modern entertainment. This is also a no-holds-barred business story that offers listeners unprecedented entry into a colossal, multi-billion dollar monolith. Powerhouse is sure to hit Hollywood with megaton force, and be essential reading for all pop culture, media, sports and business.

Review:

An Amazon Best Book of August 2016: When Powerhouse first crossed my desk I was mildly intrigued with the idea of getting an inside look at the Creative Arts Agency, which has come to represent some of the biggest names in Hollywood and beyond. Then I read fifty pages and was totally hooked. I’m not even familiar with all the players—though of course names like Tom Cruise and Michael Ovitz jumped right out—but it didn’t matter because their anecdotes about the people and personalities who re-wrote the rule book on how agents work with their celebrity clients are completely addicting. There are stories of overblown egos and overindulgence, brilliant strategy and crushing betrayal—this is a no-holds-barred account of five decades of Hollywood’s movers and shakers told by the people who lived it. Whether you’re an avid movie goer or only watched the Academy Awards when Tina Fey was hosting, Powerhouse is a front row seat to the building of an entertainment industry icon in all its garish glory. And it’s nearly impossible to look away. --Seira Wilson, The Amazon Book Review
