Both unflinchingly funny and deeply heartfelt, Medallion Status is a thoughtful examination of status, fame, and identity—and about the way we all deal with those moments when we realize we aren’t platinum status anymore and will have to get comfortable in that middle seat again.

“[An] affecting and hilarious meditation on fame and prestige as seen through the lens of an airline loyalty program.”—The AV Club

From the scion of Hollywood royalty—son of Michael Douglas, grandson of Kirk Douglas—a moving, often shocking, ultimately inspiring memoir detailing his struggle to regain his dignity, humanity, and place in society after many years of drug abuse and almost eight years in prison.

As the first book written by an insider with firsthand knowledge of key decisions and moments in history, Holding the Line is a must-listen for those who care about the presidency and America’s national security. It’s filled with never-before-told stories that will both alarm and reassure, a testament to the quiet and steady efforts of General Mattis and the dedicated men and women he led at the Department of Defense.
