Colorful Book and Great Read. The author tells an interesting story about an interesting business person, Sam Zell. I have seen Mr. Zell on CNBC many times and found him very honest and straightforward; which are characteristics you do not often see with commentators on television. Agree or disagree with Mr. Zell, he is a fascinating business man and the author digs deeper into the story of his success. The author writes a frank and in some instants not so flattering account of Mr. Zell, but a great read.

Read a bit like a hagiography and didn’t seem to have a general theme or thrust. Very little discussion on how he built his real estate business. Not great.

becomes clear why he was the largest real estate owner after the U.S. of course. And he makes it simple and very clear.

Sam Zell has been doing deals for many decades and I'd be surprised if he hadn't done dozens of very large transactions. The book claims to be a tell-all about him - "inside the mind of Sam Zell" - yet most of the book is about just one transaction, the Tribune purchase. Pretty shortsighted examination of a major businessman.
Phobism
I wish author touched on why Zell did not buy distressed Tribune debt. Should have analyzed returns more, but a good read.

I gained a lot of insight into Sam Zell. Makes you want to make a deal. There is definitely a good story here.
Good overview on Zell if you're a new follower. Interesting take on the Tribune odyssey, but I'm not certain that particular episode is over.
