"He was possibly the world's most flamboyant and notorious media tycoon. Unapologetic about his right-wing agenda, corporate manoeuvres, and lavish lifestyle, Conrad Black seemed untouchable with a newspaper empire that spanned three continents and a seat in Britain's House of Lords. In the fall of 2003 his carefully constructed world crumbled when his company accused him of siphoning off millions of dollars of corporate money. He now found himself the target of U.S. regulators, an object of ridicule in the international press, and a self-described "pariah" among the rich and famous he once called his friends." "Business reporters Jacquie McNish and Sinclair Stewart have dug deep into Black's career by interviewing leading players and gaining behind-the-scenes accounts of his corporate machinations. Wrong Way offers an in-depth portrayal of how the seemingly invulnerable magnate of Hollinger International Inc. was brought down by his own shareholders and ousted as head of his company."--Jacket.
