When I Stop Talking, You'll Know I'm Dead: Useful Stories from a Persuasive Man

By Jerry Weintraub
A fast talking wise-ass from the Bronx, Jerry Weintraub became a millionaire at 26 by handling some of the biggest acts in show biz, most famously Elvis Presley and Frank Sinatra. Weintraub is probably best known as the producer of such classic films as Nashville, Diner, Oh, God! and The Karate Kid, as well as the more recent Oceans Eleven and its sequels, which have together grossed over a billion dollars. Less celebrated, however, is Jerry's work behind the scenes as confidant to presidents and titans of finance. George H. W. Bush, George Clooney, and country singer George Strait all have Jerry on speed-dial -- because Jerry is the guy you call when you want what money can't buy. The stories and lessons in WHEN I STOP TALKING, YOU'LL KNOW I'M DEAD are essential ones, not only for film buffs and music fans, but for businessmen, entrepreneurs, artists, or anyone at all who's ever had a dream and the moxie to make it happen.
