Advance Praise for Bloomberg by Bloomberg "Michael Bloomberg is the most creative media entrepreneur of our time and, with Bill Gates, perhaps the most successful. " Rupert Murdoch, Chairman Chief Executive, News Corporation "Entertaining, engaging, and informative, Bloomberg by Bloomberg is packed with great advice about how to start a lean, hungry companyand how to keep it that way. " Bryan Burrough, coauthor, Barbarians at the Gate "Michael Bloomberg is a fascinating man who has written a fascinating book. He talks fast, you read fast; hes funny, hes serious. Its a great roller coaster ride. " Beverly Sills, Chairman, Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts, Inc. "How an entrepreneur like Mike survived fifteen years at a respectable firm like Salomon Brothers is beyond me! But he eventually straightened out and went on to shake up one industryfinanceand help consolidate two othersonline services and journalism. His account of how he did so is fascinating and instructive. " Esther Dyson, President, EDventure Holdings Inc. "The man with Wall Streets best known generic name has written an autobiography that keeps you up late to finish. The book is full of wonderful insights about Wall Street and about starting and growing a new business. " Julian H. Robertson, Jr. , Chairman, Tiger Management L. L. C. "This is the best insight yet on how one man shook up the entire financial information industry. " Richard Branson, Chairman, Virgin Group of Companies
