In "Working Together", Michael Eisner, former Disney CEO and entertainment biz veteran, takes an inside look at some of the most successful business partnerships and what makes them tick. In business there are always unique individual achievers, but pull down the veil and you'll often find someone alongside them.

Amazing book with lots of knowledge on the best business partnerships in the world. This also runs along the same thought process as is described in the best selling book how to win friends and influence people by dale carnegie. 1) Warren Buffet – Charlie Munger If he was interested in something, and wanted to talk it over, i was as interested in it as if i had my whole net worth in it. So many lessons from one small quote. The process being that to become an interesting person first you must be interested. Be deeply involved and interested in other peoples ideas (or your partners).

Michael D. Cohen. Michael Eisner does just that in Working Together. In this essential book for businesspeople everywhere, Eisner shines a light on these startlingly long-lasting and enriching partnerships, weaving together 10 separate narratives - from investment gurus to entertainment impresarios, from fashion designers to big-box retailers - into a larger story about the true nature of achievement in life and in business. Ten stories, ten magical partnerships: Michael D. Eisner and Frank Wells (Disney). Warren Buffett and Charlie Munger (Berkshire Hathaway). Bill and Melinda Gates (The Gates Foundation).

  • The subtitle of this book is, "Why Great Partnerships Succeed" but it never really answers the question. The Frank Wells chapter is worth the price of the book alone, nonetheless. Only Michael Eisner could have written that. Frank Wells is still missed nearly 20 years after his tragic death in a helicopter accident. Frank Wells is strong evidence that how you treat people in life is remembered long after you are gone. The other interviews/profiles in the book are a bit hackneyed and have been covered extensively elsewhere (Buffett/Munger). This book might have benefited from a bit more introspection or analysis from Eisner. For example, it could have included some counterexamples of disagreement, tension, challenges and/or even partnerships that didn't work. Ovitz/Eisner is one obvious example. "Why Great Partnerships Fail" is probably the subject of a different, perhaps equally noteworthy, business book.

  • I've always been a solitary business man. I've liked to launch businesses alone and keep the pie to myself.

    But Michael Eisner's book "Working Together" really changed everything for me. It introduced me to a number of examples of beautiful partnerships, where each individual was better for having the other by his side.

    Furthermore, the book was just an enjoyable read. Its so cool to hear about all of these REALLY successful business celebrities and how a partnership early on helped get them to where they are.

    Highly recommended!

  • This is the bomb, for under building stronger friendship business relations, a must read for any one interested the busniess of media

  • A book filled with stories of incredible insight into the different personalities of varying partnerships. These stories are short and pleasant with a twist of great advice. Not only does it give an example of what to expect from a potential partner but, how to be an incredible partner yourself. Major take away from this book: Communication. 4/5 would recommend to a friend.

  • Actually I read this book when it was first published. Bought this copy for my son, who is considering a partner in his business.

  • one of the best books this year

  • I was very interested in reading this book. I don't want to trash Eisner. I think if it were not for he and Frank Wells there might not be a Walt Disney Company today. I thought this was a real opportunity for him to more fully explore what worked between he and Frank. In the end, I found little more than his conversation about the relationship in his autobiography. That was a disappointment.

    He goes on to explore other successful partnerships. Some are from Hollywood, like Brian Grazer and Ron Howard, which I found interesting. Some were outside Hollywood like Warren Buffett and Charlie Munger. Also interesting. But then he goes on to talk about Valentino and Giancarlo Giammetti. If that were a marriage, we would call it dysfunctional or co-dependent. But I wouldn't call it a great partnership. That was a disappointment.

    Eisner then goes on to highlight Steve Rubell and Ian Schrager. They founded Studio 54. This is the best we can produce in a great partnership? Really? Why didn't he highlight Bonnie and Clyde? I found no inspiration from that story. That was a disappointment.

    What was really missing was a study of the greatest Hollywood pair, past and present. Here Eisner headed Disney, but it's absent of any real conversation about Walt and Roy. Was there any more successful pair, not just in Tinseltown, but in corporate America? And then there's the best modern day example of all--John Lasseter and Ed Catmull. They not only made Pixar what it is today, they've had to go back and pick up the pieces left by the Eisner era. That was a big disappointment.

    In short, while the book has few merits, and in fact, is a disappointment.

  • Michael Eisner describes in a very lively way the strengths of personal partnerships in business. The book is fun to read and full of anectodes that make good top managers even better ones, but recognizing the power that lies in real trustful partnerships.
