munchman Recommends: “Difficult Men: Behind the Scenes of a Creative Revolution”

Difficult MenActually, the full title is Difficult Men: Behind the Scenes of a Creative Revolution: From The Sopranos and The Wire to Mad Men and Breaking Bad. But, clearly, author Brett Martin didn’t have headlines in mind when he came up with it.

This is good, though. Really good. Well written and informative. An explanation of how the television business, in which writers have always been the objects of contempt, ended up depending on a showrunner-driven creative machine. (While still holding those very writer-showrunners in contempt.)

Hell, I can more than recommend this. If you want to be a TV writer, or already are a TV writer, and you’re looking to get to the top, Difficult Men et al is a must-read.
