All That Glitters: Anna Wintour, Tina Brown, and the Rivalry Inside America’s Richest Media Empire Thomas Maier
Grace Mirabella, the editor of American Vogue, was a bit irritable one day so she asked one of her employees, Anna Wintour, which job she really wanted. Anna replied, 'Yours!' (That's the way to get ahead!) Everyone knows how this story ended.
This book is an excellent analysis of Conde Nast in the glittering, powerful magazine world of the late 80s and early 90s. It features the rivalry between Anna Wintour of Vogue and Tina Brown, who turned Vanity Fair around by focusing on celebrities and money, making the magazine extremely commercial. Lots of wealthy people, such as Donald Trump, get a look in. They were both extremely powerful career women, so it is surprising that two men, Si Newhouse and Alexander Liberman really pulled the strings.
This is a fascinating book.
