From allegedly giving a sales pitch in the nude (among other things), to wild speeches in hotel lobbies, winning an incredible number of sailing races, and even his own "Alistair Cooke" style film intros, this guy is full of antics.

There is hardly a more colorful person in the history of twentieth century media than Ted Turner. He is mad, visionary, obsessed, gutsy, bi-polar, swash-buckling, touching and very likeable. Ted's CCN inspired me to push ahead with my own small technology company. After touring the early CNN headquarters in Atlanta, I brought back colorful CNN souvenir caps for my staff; and we wore them for a time in our office whenever we brain-stormed. This is a great and detailed account of Ted's adult years from family billboard company executive to AOL Time Warner vice chairman.
You'll rout for this multi-billionaire after reading the book.

Insite to the mind of a great man. Could not put the book down.

Great insight into Ted Turner the man himself. This book has anecdotes about him that I haven't read anywhere else before. Very well researched book. Ted Turner goes from a medium sized businessman into a multi-billion dollar media tycoon without it really changing the man that he is. One of the best biographies I've read to date.

This book was an insult to my intelligence. Instead of an objective biography, it comes across as a paid P.R piece written by a Ted Turner sycophant. Don't waste your money on this trash. Too bad there isn't a "zero stars" rating!!!

Just some business details and too much sailing and private things.
