Abstract:

"They were not content to do something as mundane as build a successful business. Rather, they were hell-bent on global domination. Along the way, they were afforded the stature of world leaders, idolized like rock stars, and treated like folk heroes." "When the history of the Digital Age is written, the story will be boiled down to the empires created by five men: Bill Gates, Steve Case, Larry Ellison, John Chambers, and Jeff Bezos." "They are The New Imperialists." "Yet, who really are they? Beyond the scores of cover stories, newspaper headlines, television interviews and biographies, their personal motives and motivators have remained a mystery." "Until now." "Mark Leibovich spent 18 months interviewing the men themselves and over 400 people who have known them best: family, friends, neighbors, former teachers, classmates and lovers, colleagues, employees and adversaries. Combining the information he gleaned with his own unique take on these men, Leibovich has written a fascinating collection of biographies emphasizing their little known and deeply personal quirks, motivations, warts, demons, and vanities."--Jacket.
