For the last 45 years, the Playboy Interview has been unique in the world of journalism-a gold standard in the field of investigative reporting renowned for getting persons of importance-many of whom shun requests for interviews from other sources-to give life- and career-altering interviews. The Playboy Interview allows the subject a longer profile, with the interviewer (some of the most widely respected journalists of the era) guiding the conversation-just the way Hugh Hefner envisioned it back in 1962.
Power. Control. Influence. In every business, in every area of professional achievement, only a handful of people have taken control of their industry or marketplace. With vision, determination, and passion, these people have bent the world to their will. Some were millionaires from birth, others have risen to the upper echelons of power by their bootstraps. From the computers you use, to the shoes you wear, to the cars you drive, their hands have shaped the fabric of your daily existence. In Movers and Shakers, 15 of the most important people from the last 45 years of American business speak candidly about their rise to power.
M Press is honored to present these conversations with individuals who have shaped our lives and who have been shaped by the changing climates of the 20th and 21st centuries. The Playboy Interviews: Movers and Shakers, the fourth of these themed editions, each consisting solely of Playboy Magazine interviews, will be released in February 2007, with additional volumes to follow that feature unforgettable conversations with legendary actors, comedians, late night talk-show hosts, musicians, and many others.
