In All His Glory

CBS television tycoon Paley is portrayed as a narcissist, womanizer and tyrannical father in this well-documented biography, which is packed with TV and radio anecdotes and high-level intrigue. According to PW , this ``often unflattering but never malicious portrait . . . . tears away the layers of self-aggrandizing mythology Paley wove about himself.'' Photos. (Oct.)
