I'm looking at from the outside, but he has had an influential and complicated, possibly Weinsteinish, legacy. Your thoughts?

I'm in Mexico. Intermittent internet. Will reply when I can. But... Jann and I weren't buddies. Screaming arguments. I was fired 6 times. Rehired. But Jann had a certain genius and while the book is generally well researched, it's written on a slant. When I look back on things, Jann was the first editor who believed in me. I owe my career to the guy. B(also, I wasn't hired from Tennessee as the book states.)
