Drawing on highly placed CBS sources and hundreds of interviews, and with a supporting cast of such glittering figures as Truman Capote, Slim Keith, Jock Whitney, Ted Turner, David Sarnoff, Brooke Astor and a parade of Paley's humiliated heirs, In All His Glory is a richly textured story of business, power and social ambition.
Praise for In All His Glory

"Riveting...packed with revelations, rich in radio and TV lore, sprinkled with intrigues, glitz, and wheeling and dealing at the highest levels of media and government."—Publishers Weekly
"An impressive, meticulously researched work of broadcast history as well as a piquant glimpse inside CBS's corporate culture."—Time
