The author describes with loving care every detail of the decor of Onassis' yacht. I doubt that any yacht has ever had so large a part of a biography dedicated to it.
However, midway through the book there is a long discussion of Aristotle Onassis' fascination with whaling. He liked to point out to guests that the barstools on his yacht were upholstered in the foreskins of whales. His whaling ships killed hundreds, probably thousands, of these highly intelligent beings that have never preyed on the human race. My respect for him plummeted then and there.
His slavish adoration of a moron like Winston Churchill is just one more indication of his worship of the British upper classes and of his slobbering need for their approval.
How surprised he must have been when he discovered that Death would not give him a pass despite his unimaginable wealth. Apparently no one had ever told him that the human race is just a descendant of a tribe of lowland chimpanzees.
made Monaco ... it was bankrupt until he came along and also introduced it to the big stars of
Hollywood .. it was even said it was he who introduced Grace Kelly to the Prince .. she an American\
heiress as well as film star .. I was surprised to learn how well he and Jackie got along .. the
perception has been she only married him for the money and privacy he could provide ... but here
we see she really cared about him.
We learn about his upbringing, his talent to make million, his fascination with some of the worlds most beautiful women, his friendship with Winston Churchill along with his many business deals & those he clashed with. Wealth such as he possessed can barely be imagined.
