Book Summary

The definitive biography of the first American billionaire.

Howard Hughes was a true American original, legendary lover, record-setting aviator, award-winning film producer, talented adventurer, ultimate eccentric, and, for much of his lifetime, the richest man in the United States.

His desire for privacy was so fierce and his isolation so complete that even though, 25 years after his death, and accurate stories continue to circulate, and many have been published as fact. Hughes explodes the illusion of his life and exposes the man behind the myth. He was a playboy who sexual exploits with Hollywood stars and starlets were legendary. He was a man without compassion, an entrepreneur without ethics, and explorer without maps and ultimately, an eccentric trapped by his own insanity, sealed off from reality, who died a lonely and, until now, mysterious death.

Newly uncovered personal letters, over a 110,000 pages of sealed court testimony, recently declassified FBI files, never before published autopsy reports and exclusive interviews reveal a man so devious in his thinking, so perverse in his desires, and so influential that his impact continues to be felt even today. From entertainment the politics, aviation to espionage, the influence of manipulation of his billionaire has left an indelible and unique mark on the American cultural landscape.

Howard Hughes never kept a diary, yet he wrote over 8,000 pages of memos, letters and personal notes that chronicle his life and thoughts. Impeccably researched for decades by Hollywood investigative writer Richard Hack, here at last is the complete and definitive story of a truly extraordinary life.
