Now, having massively increased the family fortune, he is said to be lonely, unhappy and easily bored.Two years of intensive research and hundreds of interviews make THE RISE AND RISE OF KERRY PACKER a compelling biography of Australia's least understood tycoon. But above all, it is a disturbing portrait of power in Australia and how it can be used.… (mais)
