Revue de presse

Robichaux, an editor of the Wall Street Journal′s "Weekend" section, covered cable television for the paper from 1989 to 2001. Here he draws on interviews and published sources to produce a well–written account of John Malone. In the early 1970′s, at the young age of 29, Malone took over a small cable company on the edge of bankruptcy known as Tele–Communications, Inc. (TCl), which he adeptly turned around and in 1998 sold to AT&T for $48 billion, making it the largest media merger in history. The author weaves an intricate tale of the cable industry and TCI as he reveals the brilliant deal–making strategies that built the largest cable company in the world. A typical strategy would be to swap stock, which defers recognition of profit on the deal whereby taxes would not have to be paid. Using these tactics, Malone acquired hundreds of companies and was viewed as a monopolist, creating a political backlash in Washington that caused him to be called Darth Vader, Genghis Khan, and the Godfather rolled into one. Readable and well researched, this work is unauthorized but was written with Malone′s cooperation. Recommended for media collections in public libraries and those interested in the "art of the deal."

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 by some and reviled by others as a ruthless robber baron, is revealed as a bit of both in Cable Cowboy. For more than twenty–five years, Malone has dominated the cable television industry, shaping the world of entertainment and communications, first with his cable company TCI and later with Liberty Media. Written with Malone′s unprecedented cooperation, the engaging narrative brings this controversial capitalist and businessman to life. Cable Cowboy is at once a penetrating portrait of Malone′s complex persona, and a captivating history of the cable TV industry. Told in a lively style with exclusive details, the book shows how an unassuming copper strand started as a backwoods antenna service and became the digital nervous system of the U.S., an evolution that gave U.S. consumers the fastest route to the Internet. Cable Cowboy reveals the forces that propelled this pioneer to such great heights, and captures the immovable conviction and quicksilver mind that have defined John Malone throughout his career.

"Excellent coverage of John Malone" 24 octobre 2002
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
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!'

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
Par jwilliamgrimes - Publié sur Amazon.com
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.
