I have a thing about Goldsmith. Fascinating, complex man. I first read Billionaire by Ivan Fallon which is a longer book with a lot more intricate detail on his business deals - most of which I didn't understand but which made my jaw drop because of the sheer boldness and it must be said, brilliance, of the man. Tycoon is less complex but misses nothing. Its better written, easier to read. It focuses more on the complex personality of Goldsmith, which I found rewarding. It was also more punchy on the very early family history than Fallon's book which, again, I appreciated in that it made it an easier to get to the main event that much quicker. I'd certainly recommend Tycoon, if you can get it. I could only get it second hand from the USA.
