Review:

“Now the full story of the life and death of Howard Hughes has been published, told not as cheap gossip but as a dazzlingly reported, hard-nosed account...[A] fat, beautifully researched book.”
- John Justin Smith, Chicago Sun-Times

“By far the soundest, fairest and fullest book we have on the bizarre billionaire who commanded the fortunes of Croesus yet could not command himself. It is the story of a man who had everything―and nothing.”
- John Barkham Reviews

“Donald Barlett and James Steele of The Philadelphia Inquirer, the finest team of reporters west of The Times of London, herewith present the perfect biography of the weirdest, most fascinating, most god-awful corporate creature you will ever encounter in broad daylight.”
- Robert Sherrill, Nation

“Of all the books written about Howard Hughes, [this] is easily the best...the first fully documented, crade-to-grave account of a unique American life.”
- Ted Morgan, New York Times Book Review

“[The authors] have made an impressive use of documents to fashion this longest, most responsible and authoritative biography of Hughes to date.”
- Peter S. Prescott, Newsweek
