Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0312329970, Paperback)
His wealth was legendary. His passions were bizarre. Now, the truth about the money, the madness, and the man behind the enigma.
Howard Hughes is one of the best known and least understood men of our times--famed for his wealth, his daring, and his descent into madness. Bestselling biographer Charles Higham goes beyond the enigma to reveal the incredible private life of Howard Hughes:
* his romances with the great stars of Hollywood--Katharine Hepburn, Bette Davis, Cary Grant, Tyrone Power, and numerous others
* his forays into sadomasochism
* his involvement with Richard Nixon and Watergate
* his bizarre final years
This is a compelling portrait of a unique American figure--in a story as revealing as it is unforgettable.
