"Ken Auletta's Media Man is a smart and discerning portrait of Ted Turner. And who's more fascinating than Ted Turner?-the cowboy entrepreneur who, in revolutionizing broadcast news, changed the way people, from presidents to ayatollahs, from CEO's to celebrities, communicate. You could say Turner changed the world, and Auletta gets under the skin. The book is alive with insights into Turner's motivations, his relationships, his self-doubts, and his disappointments. It is absorbing, enlightening and fun."
