Read full description of the books Call Me Ted:

I cant help it. I'm a sucker for Ted Turner. Between an interest in the early days of cable television, a connection to Atlanta, and an obsession with the Braves, I just like the guy. Besides, I have always felt that the world could use a few more eccentric billionaires who are willing to put their money where their mouth is, especially when they are outspoken on issues like world peace, nuclear nonproliferation, and the environment.

Turner has finally written some memoirs, and I found it fun to read his stories about behind the scenes at his various businesses as well as his colorful comments about people like Jane Fonda and Rupert Murdoch. That said, I cant really recommend this book as a piece of fine writing. It is basically a collection of fairly well-written anecdotes about Turner's escapades, none of which are given much time and none of which give much insight into what makes him tick. But it still remains the best memoir of a tycoon I have read since Jimmy James: Macho Business Donkey Wrestler
