Book Overview
Onassis, as he emerges from these pages, is superb...Onassis was a phenomenon in our time, combining money, power, intelligence, a zest for humanity, and, I suspect, a deep-seated humanity...Onassis was, above all, a man...Brady provides many insights into the attitudes of the man. The New York Times Book Review Onassis was a hard-driving ambitious man who went after whatever he wanted and usually succeeded...He was a shrewd businessman who knew how to charm people, how to entertain them, how to sweep them off their feet and into his corner...Brady is to be commended for coming up with such a probing study. West Coast Review of Books A life that so excels most fiction...For Onassis's lifestyle, Brady's is the better source. The Washington Post For the people yearning to read about the feud with shipping magnate Stavros Niarchos, the affair with diva Maria Callas, the marriage to Jackie Kennedy, the friendship with Winston Churchill, and the quarrel with Grace Kelly and Prince Rainier. Publishers Weekly Glamorous ... more like a novel than a biography ... illuminates the paradoxes in Onassis' life. Newsday A fast-moving biography of a robust, colorful life ... detailing the Greek's penchant for beautiful women ... An unblinking appraisal of a power-wielder and his vulnerabilities. Booklist Brady concentrates on the women in Onassis' life, from the extraordinary Ingebord Dedichen who served as Onassis' early mentor ... to Jacqueline Kennedy. The New York Times Laughing and conniving and handing out diamond necklaces, the man had something life-giving ... Chicago Daily News
