However, this book misses the mark. While author Ben Johnson gets the details of the deals down pat, he fails to create a compelling portrait of the man himself. There is but little in this book about the private Zell, his thoughts or about his family. Johnson also fails to provide an examination of Zell's dealings and the way that he operates his businesses. Worse of all, Johnson's handling of the Tribune fiasco is poor and one wonders why he could not wait until its concluded before undertaking this book.
In sum, this book works both as a compendium of Zell's real estate transactions and as a treasury of Zell's most famous quotations. However, if you want to get past the gloss and into the substance, you have to wait for a future biographer to come along.
