Conrad and Lady Black (Updated) : The rise and fall of media tycoon Conrad Black and his journalist wife, Barbara Amiel, is one of the great stories of the modern business world. London-based journalist Tom Bower reveals how Conrad and Lady Black used other people's money to finance a billionaire's lifestyle, winning friends and influence in London and New York along the way. Their story of overweening ambition and greed is a modern-day classic of hubris. Based on over 150 interviews with celebrities, politicians, bankers and close friends, and packed with intimate revelations, this is a hugely entertaining account of gullibility in high places.
