Reviews

"Powerhouse delivers a chronicle of vaunting ambition, immense wealth and power, and personal betrayal all the more astonishing in a business ostensibly built on loyalty and trust... Even more impressive is Miller's ability to get nearly everyone involved not only to talk but also go on the record."--New York Times Book Review
"Magisterial. ... One of the two most important books about the business of entertainment to come out in 2016. ... A must read for anyone who wants to work in Hollywood or just know how Hollywood works."--The Hollywood Reporter
"It's dishy. It's like People Magazine meets 'The Godfather.' It's like nothing else. I ate it up."--New York Post
"Eminently readable and moves at a fast pace thanks to dozens of fascinating celebrity stories."--Mashable
"The year's hottest Hollywood tell-all."--New York Daily News
"Probably the most hotly anticipated book since Julia Phillips's tell-all YOU'LL NEVER EAT LUNCH IN THIS TOWN AGAIN dropped more than two decades ago."--Variety
"[F]un to read both for the boldface names - including agency founders Michael Ovitz and Ron Meyer, and clients like Magic Johnson and Ali MacGraw - and for a glimpse into a largely unseen world of cultural influencers."--The National Book Review
