Excellent read!

Fun, interesting, and insightful read. Provides clear explanation of the financial transactions utilized to help Malone build his cable empire.

Who's the man behind the curtain?

I picked the book up with a layman's knowledge of the cable industry and it's origins. I come away with a much broader understanding of both it's origins and significance. The read is smooth and upbeat and really get's to know the man who wired our nation.

A riveting tale of an important influential figure.

Mark Robichaux delivered the inside story of one of the world's most influential and visionary business figures. His narrative takes readers from the wild, wild west to the hallowed halls of Wall Street and everywhere in between. This is a fabulous read that deconstructs the enigma of John Malone. 5 Stars!

"Excellent coverage of John Malone"

Malone is so pivotal a figure in telecommunications and cable that I'm surprised it took so long for anyone to tackle him. Robichaux has done an excellent job of getting inside the mind of one of the most compelling characters in American business. This one rates a 'must read!'
