Amoeba Review

Notoriously press and camera-shy, David Geffen reveals himself for the first time in this unflinching portrait of a complex and compelling man. His far-reaching influence--as agent and manager, record industry mogul, Hollywood and Broadway producer, and billionaire philanthropist--has helped shape American popular culture for the past four decades.

In his singular rise from working-class Brooklyn boy to billionaire entertainment mogul, he launched the early successes of Joni Mitchell, Crosby, Stills and Nash, Jackson Browne, Tom Cruise, and Guns N' Roses; he co-founded DreamWorks, the first new Hollywood studio in more than 50 years; he produced Cats and Dreamgirls; he is one of the largest contributors to the fight against AIDS; and he has become an important political voice. This dealmaker extraordinaire is witty, self-aware and candid.

AMERICAN MASTERS explores the highs and the lows in Geffen's professional and personal life through more than 50 new interviews. He and everyone from Yoko Ono and Cher, Frank Rich and Maureen Dowd, Steven Spielberg and Barry Diller, David Crosby and Neil Young, Tom Hanks, Elton John, and Rahm Emanuel illuminate his rich and riveting story.
