From Publishers Weekly
Bruck chronicles the fast-paced career of Time Warner's Steve Ross, who transformed his father-in-law's funeral business into the world's largest media company.
Copyright 1995 Reed Business Information, Inc.
From Library Journal
Bruck, famous for her muckraking book about Michael Milken (Predator's Ball, LJ 3/15/89), unveils another power person's reckless spending habits and questionable management actions. Bruck uncovers details about Ross and the Time-Warner merger that are not in Richard Clurman's To the End of Time (LJ 2/1/92). Unfortunately, the abundant detail loses the reader at times, and Bruck is so focused on the wrongdoings of Ross and those at Time, Inc., that she offers little insight about the future of the company. Nonetheless, academics and business people will probably demand this book. Weakly recommended.

A good story about a man who starts off running his father in law's funeral palor and winds up the head of one the world's biggest companies.
Bruck spends a lot of time discussing the charm and the personality of Ross and admits that Ross is someone that she really likes. The book does not have the balance of her previous book, The Predators Ball, but does not Michael Milken as subject matter like that book did too.
I would definitely recommend owning a copy of this book.
