A fascinating peek behind the corporate curtain. An engrossing insider's account--a great read about the greatest media empire of the late-20th and early-21st century.
Great insights into the complex Murdoch man and equally great lessons for risk-taking and management.--Barry Diller, Chairman of IAC/InterActiveCorp and Expedia, Inc.
A fascinating recounting of the myriad complex transactions and organizational approach Rupert utilized in building a great entrepreneurial media empire. Relentless energy!--John Malone, Chairman of Liberty Media
Want to be a newspaper proprietor? A movie mogul? An icon? Irwin Stelzer's inside knowledge shows us how it's done.--Maurice Saatchi
The author's close relationship with Rupert Murdoch gave him his biggest advantage as a biographer--special insights into the man and his motives--but also his biggest problem: the temptation to be too lenient when criticism was objectively justified. Irwin Stelzer has traversed this minefield with a sense of humor, great writing skill, and a sincere effort to achieve scholarly detachment.--David Green, Chief Executive of Civitas
Stelzer, who worked closely with Rupert Murdoch for 35 years, delivers unique insights into the media mogul's management techniques.
