Présentation de l'éditeur

An inside look at a cable titan and his industry
John Malone, hailed as one of the great unsung heroes of our age bysome and reviled by others as a ruthless robber baron, is revealedas a bit of both in Cable Cowboy. For more than twenty–five years,Malone has dominated the cable television industry, shaping theworld of entertainment and communications, first with his cablecompany TCI and later with Liberty Media. Written with Malone′sunprecedented cooperation, the engaging narrative brings thiscontroversial capitalist and businessman to life. Cable Cowboy isat once a penetrating portrait of Malone′s complex persona, and acaptivating history of the cable TV industry. Told in a livelystyle with exclusive details, the book shows how an unassumingcopper strand started as a backwoods antenna service and became thedigital nervous system of the U.S., an evolution that gave U.S.consumers the fastest route to the Internet. Cable Cowboy revealsthe forces that propelled this pioneer to such great heights, andcaptures the immovable conviction and quicksilver mind that havedefined John Malone throughout his career.

"Excellent coverage of John Malone" 24 octobre 2002
Par Un client - Publié sur
Format: Relié
Malone is so pivotal a figure in telecommunications and cable that I'm surprised it took so long for anyone to tackle him. Robichaux has done an excellent job of getting inside the mind of one of the most compelling characters in American business. This one rates a 'must read!'

John Malone is a mogul, visionary, pioneer, and one of the most powerful and influential businessmen of our time. Cable Cowboy tells the definitive story of how Malone built a cable empire and in the process dramatically enhanced the communications and entertainment lives of people everywhere.

This book is worth an MBA education. Mr Malone never had it easy but by sheer will and superior brainpower he succeeded. He never took no for an answer & always tried new ways to get something done. A true innovator and industry leader, Mr Malone is truly a business superstar.

A Genius who has seen the Futur 24 janvier 2013

Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
Having known Malone through business in the 80's it was obvious that he was destined to lead the information industry. Book describes his accomplishments in good detail. More to the story today is that Malone is the nation's largest private landowner and that his family foundation is enabling many excellent private high schools to enroll bright students who otherwise would not be able to afford to attend.
