What would my mother say? How would she want me to handle this situation? How can I make this tough decision and stay true to myself? Sam Haskell still asks himself these questions every day. When Haskell was young, his devoted mother, Mary, instilled in her son the values of character, faith, and honor by setting an example and asking him to promise to live his life according to her lessons. He did, and those promises have served Haskell consistently from his Mississippi boyhood to his long career at the venerable William Morris Agency in Beverly Hills. In this inspiring memoir full of touching stories and amusing anecdotes, Haskell reveals how he kept his pledge to his mother to live a decent life--even in the shark-infested waters of Hollywood, where he handled the hottest stars and packaged the highest-rated shows--by refusing to become the cliché of an amoral agent.--From publisher description.
