Synopsis

Reg Grundy is one of the most successful Australian media and television entrepreneurs of his generation. He is also notoriously a private individual - here for the first time he tells his life story, in his own words. The book is replete with the colourful and charming anecdotes about over 30 years in Australian television, from the first days of broadcasting, to his game shows such as Wheel of Fortune and Sale of the Century, to the dramas that most Australians will fondly remember - including The Restless Years, The Young Doctors, Prisoner, Sons and Daughters, and the largest success of all, Neighbours. This is the full story behind the man behind the shows. Reg Grundy was always at the coalface and he certainly had a talent for creating a winner, but his was not always a Midas touch - there were dizzying highs and terrifying lows during his career. But in the end his story is one of amazing determination, risk-taking, salesmanship and ingenuity.
