More About The Chief by David Nasaw
 
 
 
Overview
Named one of the best books of the year by the New York Times, the Los Angeles Times, the Washington Post, Business Week, and GQ, The Chief: The Life of William Randolph Hearst is an absorbing and ingeniously organized biography . . . of the most powerful publisher America has ever known (New York Times Book Review). Drawing on papers and interviews that were previously unavailable, as well as on newly released documentation of interactions with such figures as Hitler, Mussolini, Churchill, every president from Grover Cleveland to Franklin Roosevelt, and movie giants Louis B. Mayer, Jack Warner, and Irving Thalberg, David Nasaw completes the picture of this colossal American engagingly, lucidly and fair mindedly (Arthur Schlesinger, Jr.). Outstandingly researched, elegantly but not flamboyantly written, and fair in its conclusions about Hearst s astonishing career (Wall Street journal), The Chief must be regarded as the definitive study . . . It s hard to imagine a more complete rendering of Hearst s life (Business Week).
