Synopsis: Much has been written about Tommy Mottola, one of the most powerful, visionary, and successful executives in the history of the music industry. He discovered, developed and launched the careers of many superstars, including Mariah Carey, Celine Dion, Shakira, Jennifer Lopez and Gloria Estefan, and is credited with creating the "Latin Explosion." He has had the privilege of working alongside Bruce Springsteen, Billy Joel, Bob Dylan, Beyonce, Michael Jackson, Barbara Streisand, the Dixie Chicks, Pearl Jam, Aerosmith, Tony Bennett, and Ozzy Osbourne, amongst other music giants. This is his story--a story of the modern music industry, from Elvis to the iPod--through the eyes of the man who made much of it happen.

HITMAKER recounts how a kid from the Bronx--and a college dropout--became one of the music industry's most creative and controversial CEOs. For the first time, Tommy lays bare the facts behind the most sensational aspects of his life, such as being married to and developing the career of Mariah Carey, managing Michael Jackson's emotional ups and downs, and the power struggle with his onetime boss and mentor Walter Yetnikoff. HITMAKER will take you inside this world of power, money, and fame as he recounts the fascinating dealings with countless icons, and what it was like to be at the top when the business suddenly changed.

Tommy's story is one that will never be duplicated--and here it is, in his own voice, for the first time.

About the Author: Tommy Mottola is one of the highest-profile executives in the history of the music industry. He is credited with discovering and guiding the careers of many of the world's most iconic music artists. Starting as a musician and an Epic Records recording artist at the age eighteen, he returned twenty years later to run that very company as Sony Music Entertainment's global CEO. In his tenure, he is credited with tripling the company's revenue, selling an estimated 8 billion CDs, and generating more than $65 billion in sales. Tommy now heads the Mottola Media Group, a global entertainment and media company in New York City. He resides in New York City with his wife, Thalia, and their two young children, Sabrina and Matthew, and close by are his two older children, Sarah and Michael.
