If you read the son's book first and then read this book, you will find Al Neuharth's view of himself as "lovable" quite a fantasy. The son's book is excellent help for adult children of narcissistic parents, and quite well reviewed, unlike this book.
I do not believe that success in business or publishing requires the enormous betrayals Al Neuharth performed to others in his industry or to his family.
The corporate culture he created boldly, sometimes extravagantly, demanded curiosity about how media need to evolve, to remain relevant.
Recommended reading for all my clients.
A true business maverick writes his memoirs. Great read! Whenever I need to get back to the business basics, I pull this book out. I've read it so many times that my copy is dog-eared.

Al Neuharth taught me a lot about how to survive in the modern world. He's an unapologetic SOB and you either love him or hate him. This book is fabulous--I own three copies.Published on September 3, 2006 by R. Youngman
