POWERHOUSE The Untold Story of Hollywood's Creative Artists Agency

by | Read by James Andrew Miller, Kirby Heyborne, Ann Richardson

Business & Finance • 25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2016

The CAA talent agency was founded in 1975 by five employees of the highly successful but staid William Morris office. This is the story of CAA's ascent and growing dominance. Miller himself provides the introductory material; he lacks any flair for engaging narration. Kirby Heyborne, principal narrator, offers a youthful energy that is fresh and intimate. Ann Richardson does her best to deliver the women's quotations--with middling clarity. The biggest problem is the content itself, which fails to enliven this inside look at the entertainment industry's negotiation and packaging, loyalties and betrayals because it's all presented without context, organization, or thematic introduction. In addition, attributions sometimes come after quotations, confusing the listener. This may be an audiobook to skip. W.A.G. © AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine [Published: SEPTEMBER 2016]
