Abstract:

A recent Forbes listed Larry Ellison as the fifth richest man in the world, and the second richest active player (behind Bill Gates of Microsoft) in the technology world. Oracle Corporation, of which he is founder and CEO, is the fastest-growing software database company in the world. Oracle software allows people to withdraw cash from an ATM, make an airline reservation and hook up your TV to the Internet. Ellison began Oracle with a $1,200 investment and doubled its sales in eleven of its first twelve years. He is also a daredevil sportsman with a 78-foot yacht and a number of fast jets. Mike Wilson interviewed more than a hundred of Ellison's friends and enemies as well as Ellison himself to create this portrait of an enigmatic and visionary businessman.
