Publisher's Summary

Aristotle Onassis was a born orator, and Jackie Kennedy would sit and listen to him spin off tales and stories - often racy - by the hour. A speaker of seven languages, he could keep a dinner party of some of the world's most sophisticated conversationalists spellbound. Even Jackie couldn't help but drop her reserve and laugh with him. America's First Lady simply never knew anyone quite as free or exotic as Aristotle Onassis, a paradoxical blend of raconteur and ruffian.

Beginning with Aristotle Onassis' childhood and his first financial success as an Argentine tobacco dealer, author Frank Brady gives the listener an intimate account of Onassis' rise to the ranks of super-billionaire. Brady captures all the drama and romance of this glamorous tycoon, peeling away the persona to reveal the husband, lover, father, financial wiz, and companion to the Churchills, Kennedys, and Roosevelts.

A,fascinating life journey of Onassis

A very interesting account of Onassis life. He persevered and reached the top of the mountain of wealth. Not an easy thing to accomplish. I can't say money did not make him happy because it brought him satisfaction, comfort, and access to other fascinating and important people. I don't think he was a tragic wealthy man. He was an intelligent man and could be ruthless (in his position he had to be). A good and rare biography of Aristole Onassis.
