1990s

In 1991, Wolff launched Michael Wolff & Company, Inc., specializing in 
book-packaging. Its first project, Where We Stand, was a book with a companion 
PBS<https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PBS> series. The company's next major project 
was creating one of the first guides to the Internet, albeit in book form. Net 
Guide was published by Random 
House<https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Random_House>.[12]<https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michael_Wolff_%28journalist%29#cite_note-12>

In the fall of 1998, Wolff published a book, Burn 
Rate<https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Burn_Rate_%28book%29>, which recounted the 
details of the financing, positioning, personalities, and ultimate breakdown of 
Wolff's start-up Internet company, Wolff New Media. The book became a 
bestseller. In its review of Wolff's book Burn Rate, Brill's 
Content<https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brill%27s_Content> criticized Wolff for 
"apparent factual errors" and said that 13 people, including subjects he 
mentioned, complained that Wolff had "invented or changed 
quotes".[13]<https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michael_Wolff_%28journalist%29#cite_note-13>

In August 1998, Wolff was recruited by New 
York<https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/New_York_%28magazine%29> magazine to write a 
weekly column. Over the next six years, he wrote more than 300 
columns.[14]<https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michael_Wolff_%28journalist%29#cite_note-14>
 The entrepreneur Steven 
Brill<https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Steven_Brill_%28law_writer%29>, the media 
banker Steven Rattner<https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Steven_Rattner>, and the 
book publisher Judith Regan<https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Judith_Regan>, were 
criticized by him.

Always bear in mind that Wikipedia is a starting point not an end point when it 
comes to research.  Your own research is more valuable the wider and deeper you 
delve in satisfying your curiosity.

I was always a poor researcher...that is why I never made it to the big time.  
My...how grateful I am...At least I can walk down the street without being 
recognised.  It is a wonderful feeling....:-)

Enjoy,

ATB

Dougie.
