Synopsis:
A recent Forbes listed Ellison as the fifth richest man in the world, and the secondrichest active player (behind Gates) in the technology world. Oracle Corporation, of which he is founder and CEO, is the fastest-growing software database company in the world, and the darling of technology investors. If you withdraw cash from an ATM, make an airline reservation, hook up your TV to the Internet, then youıre using Oracle. All of this makes Ellison the man investors, techies, and people-in-the-know want to know more about. The ultimate self-made man, Ellison began Oracle with a $1,200 investment and doubled its sales in eleven of its first twelve years. But heıs a ruthless businessman who has used misdirection and half-truths to create one of the great high-tech success stories. He is also a daredevil sportsman with a 78-foot yacht, a number of fast jets, and beautiful women on his arm. If Gates is the nerd-King of the Valley, Ellison is its Warren Beatty. Mike Wilson has interviewed more than a hundred of Ellisonıs friends and enemies as well as Ellison himself to create an entertaining and provocative portrait of this enigmatic and visionary businessman.

Review:
"Wilson even manages to make a dry-as-dust technology interesting. His breezy, informative book provides a valuable object lesson about the wealth and hubris Silicon Valley breeds."

Katie Hafner, New York Times Book Review, 11/09/1997

Review:
"In a clear, concise prose, Wilson, a reporter for the St. Petersburg Times, offers a fascinating and evenhanded account of Silicon Valley's most mercurial personalities."

Elizabeth Corcoran, Washington Post Book World, 01/15/1998
