Murdoch's empire is declining, none of his children are both able and willing to take over, and scandal wracks his life, yet he still manages to thrive despite it all. This is the definitive account of Rupert Murdoch's empire—now in paperback.

Now in his 80s, Rupert Murdoch is gearing up for the toughest challenge of his life: to hand his empire over to his children. But is this the end of the Murdoch dynasty? Lachlan doesn't want to succeed him. James is in disgrace. And Elisabeth is not a serious contender. His grip on the group has also been weakened by scandal. His British tabloids have been caught hacking phones and bribing officials on an industrial scale. At least 20 journalists have been accused of hacking and corruption. But Rupert thrives on crisis. He has recently split News Corp in two, doubled his fortune to nine billion, and is bouncing around like a man in his prime. So can he win this one last battle and keep it all in the family?
