Farrow started digging into Harvey Weinstein’s predatory behavior for NBC, but the network’s top executives put a stop to his work. Instead of giving in, Farrow took his investigative report to The New Yorker and the rest is history. His new book provides all the roadblocks (from Black Cube to AMI) he had to plow through to bring the story to the public. In addition to Weinstein, Farrow reveals disturbing details of Matt Lauer’s sexual assaulting women in the workplace. The book has many fascinating revelations, but my personal favorite is about David Remnick and The New Yorker. I have tremendous respect for Remnick as well as the publication. Although this book is over 400 pages, it is a breezy read. I highly recommend it.
