About the Author

Ken Auletta has been the Annals of Communication columnist for The New Yorker since 1992. He is the author of seven previous books, including three national bestsellers. In ranking him as America's premier media critic, the Columbia Journalism Review concluded, No other reporter has covered the new communications revolution as thoroughly as has Auletta. He has written for various newspapers and magazines, and appeared regularly as a television interviewer and analyst. He started writing for The New Yorker in 1977. He grew up in Coney Island and now lives in New York City with his wife and daughter.


In 1986, all three of the major TV networks were taken over by new owners: ABC by Capital Cities; CBS by financiers Larry and Bob Tisch; NBC by General Electric. The resultant upheavals--management power plays, losses of thousands of staff jobs--have been crafted into a truly dramatic book by Auletta, a highly regarded business reporter ( Greed and Glory on Wall Street , LJ 2/15/86). Given entry to executive suites and board meetings, Auletta has acquired exclusive, first-hand knowledge of the trauma of change in a medium that affects every American family. Government regulations, prohibiting the networks from owning production studios and sharing in the fiscal bonanza of syndication, threaten their very survival, the author contends. An important book, highly recommended to all libraries. Previewed in Prepub Alert, LJ 4/15/91.-- Chet Hagan, Berks Cty. P.L. System, Pa.

"Three Blind Mice may be the most thorough probe ever into how the TV industry works." -- Newsweek

"This is one of the best books on television. Maybe the best." -- Dallas Morning News "The book's fascination and fun lie in the detail -- Mr. Auletta's extraordinary access to the principal players, his eye for color, ear for anecdote and reporter's instinct for conflict." -- Wall Street Journal "It's a tour de force of reporting" -- Business Week
