This was a very pleasant and informative peace of reading. The book is about the life of Ahmet Ertegun, the Turkish American music producer who is behind major artists like Led Zeppelin, Sonny & Cher, Aretha Franklin, Ray Charles, Rolling Stones, Kid Rock etc.

It gives you a lot information about the life of Ahmet Ertegun (the founding partner of Atlantic Records) but also about the music industry in general and its running.

I definitely recommend this to anyone who is interested in popular culture, its behind the scenes events and how the industry has developed over the years.

The Last Sultan is a very well written book about a man who really wrote the book on how to run a record company.
Ahmet Ertegun was a very powerful man who was very inspirational in helping create rock and roll and nuture many fine musicians into superstars.
He was a man who believed in his company Atlantic, he worked and ran it for many years while everyone left he continued to work and keep his beloved Atlantic Records growing and recording some great music.

This book was very enjoyable, educational and fun to read. I highly recomend it to anyone who loves music history and a good story.

"The Last Sultan" is a wonderful book for anyone who loves rock'n roll and is eager to learn about the people and the times that created this musical and cultural revolution. Ahmet Ertegun, the son of a Turkish diplomat, was at the center of this phenomenon.....the stories are both facinating and illuminating....a great book about a great guy.

Read so many books on David Geffen that this mans influence and help gave him a great start with ASYLUM so i thought id be mentored by his story and i can honestly say this man is such a brilliant humble and charismatic individual that without meeting him other than through the pages in this book i have felt his magnetism and charisma from it! Great, great job by Robert Greenfield!

A great book, a fascinating story. It's great to be able to take a peek at the life of one of the taste makers and the original "moguls" in the busines. Came well packaged, and delivery to Bulgaria was fast and very reasonably priced. Thank you!
