Summary
Inspired by the Frost/Nixon interviews, and Walter Isaacson's author-subject relationship to Steve Jobs, Alan Friedman tells the story of Silvio Berlusconi, the billionaire media mogul turned prime minster who has dominated Italian life for the past twenty years. Berlusconi has cooperated with the bestselling author and award-winning journalist in the telling of his life story. Warts and all. From the bunga-bunga parties to his most secret moments with world leaders. The book is rich in anecdotes and revelations involving Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, Geroge W. Bush, Vladimir Putin, Mickhail Gorbachev, Tony Blair, Nicolas Sarkozy, Angela Merkel, and many others. Berlusconi's incredible rise to power started from nothing. A self-created man, he was a cruise ship crooner as a young man, became a real estate tycoon in the '70s, started the first commercial television network in history, and turned AC Milan into a world-class soccer club. And that was all before he survived the squalid swampland of Italian politics to became prime minister who has not only served the longest in Italian history, but also has generated the most controversy of arguably any world leader today. All of which will be explored thoroughly and candidly in these pages in a book that reads like a thriller. --
