These names and so many others conjure images and impressions of television greatness.

Through his book "Last Manager Standing" Daniel B. Morgan takes you on a tour of the underworld of television that the public never knew existed.

While some shared moments are certainly juicy, there's plenty of eye-opening information and serious moments such as Mr. Morgan's marathon keeping the studio in order during the continuous chaos of live coverage of 9/11 mixed with his own insights and pearls of wisdom he accumulated during his fifty years working in television.
With an introduction by Connie Chung and filled with quotes and references to other TV legends and veterans, this is a non-fiction book that seems to make quite a few forays into fiction; but doesn't.
Coming in at a hefty 350 pages, not a single page goes to waste with words of wisdoms, hysterical off-camera shenanigans and endless insights and perspectives of TV personalities and the TV business itself. Anyone who has s enjoyed watching television at any point over the last 50 years will enjoy this book.
