by Jerry Weintraub with Rich Cohen
Jerry Weintraub is a legendary producer of movies, concerts and Broadway shows—he has worked in virtually every aspect of the entertainment business for decades. In the process he has earned a reputation as a savvy negotiator, wise producer and shrewd investor. He also is known for his philanthropic work and has once been named UNICEF’s Man of the Year. His incredible story from rags to riches is told here, along with a great deal of name dropping. Weintraub has worked with Elvis Presley, John Denver, Led Zeppelin, the Moody Blues and many more. Notable films he has produced include the Ocean’s Eleven series, the Karate Kid series, and Oh God! with John Denver and George Burns. Part show stopper, part business advice, this book is entertaining from start to finish. Weintraub voices the audiobook (we own both the book and the CD audiobook in our collections) which gives his story a more authentic flair when recounted with his native New York accent and style.
