NEW TAKE ON NETFLIX: A new book about Netflix Inc. provides the most comprehensive look yet at the video subscription service that has revolutionized home entertainment during the past decade. It paints a polarizing portrait of Netflix CEO Reed Hastings and tries to debunk a widely told story about the company's origins.
INSIDE SOURCES: Journalist Gina Keating drew upon interviews with Netflix co-founder Marc Randolph, other former Netflix employees and former executives at rival Blockbuster Entertainment to write "Netflixed: The Epic Battle for America's Eyeballs."
AVAILABILITY: The book, published by the Penguin Group, goes on sale Thursday.
