A warts-and-all view of this driven, mercurial, and above all, unconventional man is provided in this comprehensive biography. The prominent Australian businessman and philanthropists fascinating life story starts at the very beginning;from the groundwork laid by his father for the family business and Ken's purportedly illegitimate birth in California to his unfortunate role as executive chairman for the family business, and his scandalous divorce and remarriage to a much younger Japanese woman. Immigration, anti-Semitism, and acculturation in 20th-century Australia are also explored.
