Product description

From the Back Cover

Praise for CABLE COWBOY

"Cable Cowboy is a first-rate work by a first-rate reporter--excellent, original research on a topic that deserves it."
--Bryan Burrough, coauthor of Barbarians at the Gate

"With skill and precision, author Mark Robichaux paints a portrait of a man who is both fox and lamb, cunningly ruthless and surprisingly genuine. . . . We get to watch a man who plays chess against opponents who merely play checkers. And we get a really good read."
--Ken Auletta, author of Media Man: Ted Turner's Improbable Empire and Three Blind Mice: How the TV Networks Lost Their Way

"John Malone's remarkable climb [is] a tale worthy of a great cinematic Western. For the first time, we get a sharp picture of the man behind the mogul, an unflinching portrait of one of the business world's sharpest dealmakers. I dare you to put it down."
--Tom King, author of The Operator: David Geffen Builds, Buys, and Sells the New Hollywood

"Robichaux has provided a smart assessment of the cable industry through the wild narrative of John Malone . . . and turned it into a tale that manages to be both colorful and informative."
--Walter Isaacson, President and CEO of the Aspen Institute, former chairman of CNN, and author of Benjamin Franklin: An American Life

"A terrific saga of American enterprise--how lonely wires on windswept hillsides were stretched and spun into the Information Superhighway--as seen through the remarkable career of cable television's greatest entrepreneur."
--David Von Drehle, author of Triangle: The Fire That Changed America
