" If you followed the story as it unfolded (or heard Carter talk about the book on Bill Simmons' show), this won't provide a ton more insight. If you break it down, this is really a book about the neuroses of tremendously wealthy white guys, so it makes sense if some people just don't care at all . . . especially if the legacy of the Tonight Show holds no interest for you. However, Carter is great at walking us through the players, networks, business jargon, and legalese while remaining fairly objective (although it's clear that Jay Leno is a sad guy and former NBC Universal President/CEO Jeff Zucker really screwed the pooch with the Leno/O'Brien shuffle). He also makes the backdoor deals and meetings seem more vivid than an endless loop of golf games and conference tables. If you're looking for a backstage drama about men flailing at the end of network television, this one reads itself. "
