About the Author:

Richard Hack has been an investigative writer for 20 years, covering Hollywood and the media for much of that time. He has written biographies of billionaire businessman Ron Perelman and pop star Michael Jackson, as well as co-written the auto-biography of Howard Hughes alter-ego Robert Maheu. Most recently he wrote the biography of famed mystery writer Agatha Christie, Duchess of Death. His columns have appeared in over 600 newspapers. A noted lecturer and industry expert, he frequently appears on television as a commentator.

From AudioFile:

Richard Hack gives us a brilliant portrait of America's first billionaire, painting the life of the legendary man who was at once an aeronaut, film producer, playboy, and recluse. Despite the book's subtitle, this reading has very little in the way of diary, memo, or personal correspondences. What it does provide is a fascinating, perplexing, sometimes disturbing portrait of Howard Hughes. Dan Cashman's reading is welcoming and unobtrusive, although at times it comes across as weary. Cashman reads in a strict documentary style that sometimes belies the lifestyle of the dramatic and paradoxical Hughes as he passes between lucidity and madness--from sexual promiscuity to a phobic avoidance of people, daylight, and germs. A fascinating, captivating listen. S.E.S. © AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
