Ronan Farrow does an incredible job in the writing

Catch and Kill: Lies, Spies, and a Conspiracy to Protect Predators by Ronan Farrow is the important account of human predation that opened the door to many powerful men being outed as the sexual predators they really are, Weinstein appearing to be the worst among them.
Reading this book really gives the big picture about how Harvey was able to prey on women for such a long period of time. His tactics for shutting down journalists over the years are spelled out, and we see first hand through Ronan's eyes how Harvey was able to get NBC to kill the story. In interviews after Ronan's initial stories broke he was always guarded about why NBC wouldn't air the story and why he no longer worked for the company. Ronan Farrow does an incredible job in the writing, reporting this story. I listened to the audio version and was really creeped out to hear the actual tape that Ambra Gutierrez, a model, made for the police of Harvey Weinstein, alternately cajoling and bullying her to go to his hotel room, so he could sexually abuse her some more.
