Descubrió, desarrolló y acompañó el progreso profesional de muchas super estrellas, incluyendo a Mariah Carey, Celine Dion, Shakira, Jennifer Lopez y Gloria Estefan, y es reconocido como el creador de la "explosión latina." Ha tenido el privilegio de trabajar al lado de Bruce Springsteen, Billy Joel, Bob Dylan, Beyoncé, Michael Jackson, Barbra Streisand, las Dixie Chicks, Pearl Jam, Aerosmith, Tony Bennett y Ozzy Osbourne, entre otros gigantes de la música. Esta es su historia - la historia de la industria de la música moderna, desde Elvis hasta el iPod - a través de los ojos del hombre que hizo que la mayor parte del desarrollo de esta industria fuera posible. El Creador de Éxitos relata la forma como un muchacho del Bronx - un desertor escolar - se convirtió en uno de los CEOs más creativos y controversiales de la industria de la música. Por primera vez, Tommy pone al descubierto los hechos tras los aspectos más sensacionales de su vida, como el de haber estado casado con Mariah Carey y haber desarrollado la carrera de esta artista, haber sido la persona encargada de manejar los altibajos emocionales de Michael Jackson y haber tenido la fuerza para enfrentarse a quien fuera en una época su jefe y su mentor, Walter Yetnikoff. El Creador de Éxitos nos llevará a ese mundo de poder, dinero y fama, a medida que nos narra fascinantes encuentros con incontables íconos y lo que fue para Tommy Mottola estar en la cima en el momento en el que el negocio sufrió un cambio repentino. La historia de Tommy es una que jamás podrá igualarse, y está aqui, por primera vez, en su propia voz

If Tom Sawyer and Huck Finn had come of age at the end of the 20th century looking for an all-American adventure, they probably would've headed for Vegas. They'd have been hard-pressed to go on a wilder ride than the one taken by Tom Breitling and Tim Poster to the top of the famed Golden Nugget Hotel & Casino. Call them the Odds Couple. Breitling is the kid who lives next door if you grow up in Burnsville, Minnesota. He never saw a hundred dollar bill or The Godfather until he went to college. Poster comes from a family of oddsmakers who reach for the Doritos on football Sundays and scream for the point spread. He was whistling Sinatra and booking games at his Las Vegas high school. Their unlikely friendship began in college over an $8 veal parmigiana sandwich that led to a partnership in a hotel reservation business. Starting with a desk, a chair, a pillow, and a telephone, Tim and Tom grew a company that they sold during the dot.com boom for $105 million. This allows Tim to pursue his childhood dream of owning a casino and bringing back the glory days of Vegas. When Tim ups the odds and raises the limits to give gamblers the best game in town, a craps player nicknamed "Mr. Royalty," who's on one of the hottest winning streaks in history, heads for The Nugget. When he begins to take Tom and Tim for millions, the partnership is put to the test. But Tim refuses to back off on the odds or the high limits, telling his partner, "It's a ballsy proposition here. It's gonna be a roller coaster ride. But we don't have a public company to answer to. It's just you and me." When Mr. Royalty rolls twenty-two consecutive passes and rakes in a mountain of chips, he takes Tim and Tom to the brink. They must figure out a way to hold up The House. Just as they do, the roller coaster ride really gets rolling'and the ride becomes crazier than they'd ever imagined
