Biography & Memoir • 3 hrs. • Abridged • © 2001

Tough, gruff, and honest, Sumner Redstone, the head of Viacom, gives it to us straight! With fascinating directness and a tough-guy delivery, Redstone unravels his own history and tells how the strength he found in childhood propelled him to greatness. His unsuspecting candidness will place the listener at ease as he describes vivid memories--losing a national spelling bee, constantly studying to earn his way into Harvard, cracking Japanese codes during WWII, and nearly losing his life in a Boston hotel fire. His patriotism, intelligence, and insight are revealed in this description of the purchase of Viacom, with the savvy purchase of Blockbuster serving as the "cash cow" to make it happen. A rough and ready corporate cowboy and a hero of the entertainment frontier, Redstone is a man of simple tastes and passionate values. B.J.P.
