©2008 Ted Turner; (P)2008 Hachette Audio
Ted Turner shows how hard work, dedication and focus can do the impossible. From his days as a young man to now, Ted dreamed and went after it in life!
Great read and an honest account of his life. Just like Ted Turner showing his honest feedback on various issues either you agree or disagree it is still a must read
This was a great story though I did skip the first 9 chapters or so of his childhood as I found the story of building the media business more interesting.
An inspiring story straight from the horse's mouth. What makes this audiobook awesome if that it's refreshingly honest - warts and all - and yet incredibly inspiring.
out of college I found myself hungry for knowledge and no teachers, so I got into books fast and soon was addicted
You wanna know who Ted Turner is and why is he such an important icon in business?? Listen to this audiobook, it will hook you up from the start because it is narrated by none other than himself!!! If your into money, entrepreneurship, life lessons, business or leadership this one is a must. This leaves you asking yourself "damn, this guy did all that in his prime?? What the hell am I doing in mine??"
I really enjoyed getting to know Ted through this audio book. He does a great job reading it and I love his enthusiasm for living and creating new things.
Probably since you have the honor of listening to Ted Turner himself.
" The Agony And The Ecstacy " since it takes you through the lows and highs of a man's life, the love in his life and almost excruciating trials and tribulations of arriving at his triumphant business deals, conquering what is almost supernatural/ superhuman, like Michaelangelo on the scaffolds at the Sistene Chapel, painting the famed frescos on the ceiling in Milan, Italy, for all of us to praise.
This is the first, and I would not mind listening to it again.
I believe his donation to the UN and starting CNN were the most riveting, encompassing, and most inspirational.
I sure hope they make this into a movie.
