A freelance journalist, his work appears in Rolling Stone, where he was an editor, The New York Times, and most national magazines. He and his family live in White Plains, New York.

Reviews

Goodman builds a fascinating narrative. Bronfman emerges as, if not a hero, arguably a mighty interesting anti-hero.

--Steve Weinberg, USA Today
The book is a biography and a gimlet-eyed look at the music business, the dark side of the Internet, and the future of pop music. It succeeds on every level...Goodman's writing soars...

--Bruce Ward, Ottawa Citizen
Fortunes Fool reads like a Greek tragedy.... the boardroom intrigues are laid out clearly, making them easy to understand. What emerges is a fascinating tale of good intentions, bad luck, and the affirmation of the corporate maxim--eat or be eaten.
