In a detailed, straight-forward, and earnest manner, the authors examine Hearst Sr.'s notorious brand of journalism, his contentious politics, his devotion to art, his obsession with San Simeon, and his complex love life. They also profile reporters and columnists who became stars of the Hearst newspapers.
