CNN, AOL/Time Warner, Jane Fonda, The America's Cup: Ted Turner's story is the stuff of legend. Never before has the controversial businessman shared his personal journey. Here, for the first time, he will.

In this exceptional book, Turner spares no details of his extraordinary career and provides fascinating businesses insights along the way. Turner will also reveal the never-before-told details of his personal life. He frankly discusses a childhood of loneliness (he was sent to boarding school at the age of 4), the impact of devastating loss (his sister died at 17 and his hard-charging father committed suicide when Ted was in his early 20s). Turner also goes into great detail about his marriages, including his marriage to Jane Fonda, the "love of my life."

It's been a helluva ride -- a story to educate, enlighten, entertain, and inspire.
