Praise for CABLE COWBOY
"Cable Cowboy is a first-rate work by a first-rate reporterexcellent, original research on a topic that deserves it."
Bryan Burrough, coauthor of Barbarians at the Gate
"With skill and precision, author Mark Robichaux paints a portrait of a man who is both fox and lamb, cunningly ruthless and surprisingly genuine. . . . We get to watch a man who plays chess against opponents who merely play checkers. And we get a really good read."
Ken Auletta, author of Media Man: Ted Turner's Improbable Empire and Three Blind Mice: How the TV Networks Lost Their Way
"John Malone's remarkable climb [is] a tale worthy of a great cinematic Western. For the first time, we get a sharp picture of the man behind the mogul, an unflinching portrait of one of the business world's sharpest dealmakers. I dare you to put it down."
Tom King, author of The Operator: David Geffen Builds, Buys, and Sells the New Hollywood
"Robichaux has provided a smart assessment of the cable industry through the wild narrative of John Malone . . . and turned it into a tale that manages to be both colorful and informative."
Walter Isaacson, President and CEO of the Aspen Institute, former chairman of CNN, and author of Benjamin Franklin: An American Life
"A terrific saga of American enterprisehow lonely wires on windswept hillsides were stretched and spun into the Information Superhighwayas seen through the remarkable career of cable television's greatest entrepreneur."

As far as being a kindle book goes, the margins and spacing are a little off. I think that this would be better read as a printed book. Nothing was so distracting that I couldn't read it, though.
