From Library Journal:

Joyce's insider book is a tale full of sound and fury told by no idiot. A career CBS man, news vice-president under Van Gordon Sauter, and president until forced to resign in 1985, Joyce has written a defensive, descriptive, dialogue-filled account of the dirty deeds done to him by the network. He depicts himself as a talented and misunderstood manager who did the best he could with budget and personnel in troubled times. Boyer, New York Times television critic and formerly a media critic for CBS News, describes Joyce as an inaccessible, aloof, and unpopular executive nicknamed the "Velvet Shiv." Of veteran newsman Charles Collingwood's funeral, Boyer writes, "The infidels, Joyce and Sauter, were inside the cathedral; corruption was complete, it could get no worse. But of course, it did." Other CBS insider books include Bill Leonard's In the Storm of the Eye ( LJ 5/15/87) and Peter McCabe's Bad News at Black Rock ( LJ 4/15/87). Robert Slater's This Is CBS ( LJ 6/15/87) is mostly narrative history. Joyce and Boyer cover the Westmoreland trial, William Paley, Sauter, the Cronkite-Rather feud, mass firings, the evening and morning news, Phyllis George, and takeover attempts; Boyer brings us to 1987 with Larry Tisch's successful takeover. The two approach CBS at different angles and levels of objectivity, but would probably concur that wounds inflicted are wide open. Jo Cates, Poynter Inst. for Media Studies Lib., St. Petersburg, Fla.
