THERE MUST BE A PONY IN HERE SOMEWHERE The AOL Time Warner Debacle and the Quest for the Digital Future

by | Read by Berndadette Dunne

Business & Finance • 13.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2003

If you like tales of intrigue, hubris, vanity, and greed--or tales of invention, courage, daring, and tragedy--this audiobook will fit the bill. An epic telling of the troubled life of AOL and its idealistic founders, its ultimate purchase of the behemoth Time-Warner, and the toxic fallout that exists to this day, Swisher's work is witty and merciless. Bernadette Dunne effortlessly captures the fascination and facetiousness that is the hallmark of the author, a veteran tech reporter for The Wall Street Journal. We hear Swisher's jaded take on all the ego-driven, money-mad dot-commers before the bubble burst; her unadulterated disgust at their profligacy and venal excess; and her note of hope that this era may portend greater things for communication and culture worldwide.
