Praise For Fortune's Fool: Edgar Bronfman Jr., Warner Music, and an Industry in Crisis…
"Fortune's Fool is a worthy follow-up to Goodman's classic, The Mansion on the Hill, and confirms his reputation as one of the most incisive observers of the music business."
--Peter Biskind, author of Easy Riders, Raging Bulls and Star: How Warren Beatty Seduced Hollywood
"The compellingly told story of the Seagram heir’s music-business adventures at Universal and Warner Music, and what went terribly wrong....Deftly balanced and well-sourced—one of the most solid music-biz bios in recent memory."
“Deeply researched, engagingly written… Mr. Goodman is clearly persuaded that Mr. Bronfman is savvier than most of his music-industry peers… The music industry’s radical trajectory over roughly the past 25 years [is] neatly traced by Mr. Goodman… The woes of the music business have been chronicled elsewhere, but Mr. Goodman keeps things lively with fresh anecdotes.”
--The Wall Street Journal
“His book is full of colorful anecdotes and astonishing quotes from his subjects … Fortune’s Fool is a great read.”
--Devin Leonard, The New York Times
"An insider's perspective on an industry in flux."
