Description

As the brainchild behind the Cable News Network, Ted Turner revolutionized the television industry by introducing a 24-hour news station. Dubbed "Terrible Ted" for his apparent disregard for the rules, he turned sharp business savvy into a global communications empire that has made him one of the wealthiest-and most powerful figures in the business. This unique biography, the latest in the bestselling Speaks series, presents the different shades of this colorful personality by bringing together original Turner quotes from newscasts, interviews, and articles.
