Richard Clurman even with strong ties to Time provided a fairly objective view of both sides although it was clear that he was more familiar with the Time side and to be fair his thesis was the impact on Time.

Today, Time Warner is the biggest media conglomerate ever. Dick Clurman tells how what happened when the movie men of Warner invaded the once-mighty Time magazine empire. No single company has ever held such powerful sway over the world's hearts and minds.

Clurman (a former Time insider) leaves little doubt that his erstwhile employer got the worst of the deal that created the world's largest media conglomerate. Drawing on personal contacts, documentary material, and allied sources, he recounts how the magazine/cable-TV empire floundered during the go-go 1980's. The frustrated Time brass proved no match for Steve Ross, a silky-smooth article who ran Warner's show-biz domain as if it were a personal fiefdom.

The media business is an unusual combination of the cultural and the commercial. Commercially, for example, Clurman-like many journalists who usually write about politics-tends to treat companies as countries, or empires. This is natural and even dramatically appealing.

"To the End of Time" is about the merger between Time Inc and Warner Communications during the eighties written primarily from the Time Inc. perspective. Richard Clurman worked for Time for over twenty years so has a lot of inside knowledge of the company, people and history. He reviews the background of the two companies and for the Warner side focuses on Steve Ross as the man that built Warner Communications into a successful entertainment company. The main themes in the book are the impact on the merger of the two very different cultures of the two companies, the merger process itself, Steve Ross's ability to charm and persuade in a way that made it seem like it was the other person's idea and finally the beginning of the diminishing of print journalism. The last one is even truer today then it was 18 years ago when the book was written.

Richard Clurman even with strong ties to Time provided a fairly objective view of both sides although it was clear that he was more familiar with the Time side and to be fair his thesis was the impact on Time. Connie Bruck's "Master of The Game" is a good book to get the opposite perspective from the Warner side. At the time the book was written the author could not know if the merger would be successful and in fact at that time Wall Street had a very unfavorable opinion. However knowing what we know now the real value in Time Warner is the content (movies, HBO, network and cable programming, DC comics/Batman). The plumbing (cable companies) are being spun off and the print side still has an iconic aura but the readership has continued to decline and is more dependent on on-line presence. AOL was a bad bet but that came after the subject of this book. So one could say the content side of both sides of the merger are doing very well and therefore support the original instincts of the architects of the merger.

I enjoy books about business in America. This one was poorly written. Boring.
