Reviews

For this biography of the owner of the New York Post, Fox News, and the Wall Street Journal, Vanity Fair columnist Wolff had access to all the players in Murdoch's life, on both the family and the business ends, and interviewed Murdoch himself several times throughout the years. Wolff's story is intimate, intriguing, and told on a grand scale. For all this, Don Leslie's (American Prince) reading gives listeners a sense of intimacy. Recommended.

Praise for Michael Wolff's BURN RATE

"Burn Rate has a terrific feel for the crazy deals, the characters, and the clashing bicoastal cultures of the Internet." --Deborah Stead, New York Times "Burn Rate is the real deal: a smart, thoughtful, funny, knowing, clear-eyed, candid and altogether exhilarating insider's chronicle of the new media business--that is, the new media 'business.' If there's a more honest and entertaining book on the digital revolution, I haven't seen it." --Kurt Andersen, columnist at The New Yorker "Wolff has given us the best account of both the lure and the frustration of the Internet." --Peter Martin, Financial Times

"Burn Rate is a hilarious and frightening account of the life of an Internet startup."
--Amy Cortese, BusinessWeek "Wolff, a nimble writer with a knack for spotting colorful details, moves the story along at movie-of-the-week pace." --Katie Hafner, New York Times Book Review
