From Jay Gould to John D.Rockefeller to Bill Gates, the titans who change the world have set themselves apart by seizing the high ground before anyone else even knew it existed. Gutsy, shrewd, and ruthless, they were, above all, visionaries who saw whole new industries where others saw only chaos. Today, another visionary is seizing control of the vast new world of telecommunications, an elusive entrepreneur named Craig McCaw. 'Money from Thin Air' is the story of how he created a new industry literally from thin air, and how he will do it again. Journalist O.Casey Corr vividly portrays here for the first time how McCaw created a cellular communications empire from the disarray of his father's failed cable business and went on to sell it to AT&AT in 1993 for a stunning $12.6 billion. And he shows how McCaw is now creating another new industry that could dwarf the accomplishments of Gates and Rockefeller put together, an 'Internet in the Sky' that will provide high-speed data access to any point in the world. Most of all, Corr captures the heart of a new kind of executive- mercurial, brilliant, extremely flexible, always entreprenurial- who is changing the way business works forever.
