Conspiracy: A True Story of Power, Sex, and a Billionaire's Secret Plot to Destroy a Media EmpireDe (autor) Ryan Holiday
en Limba Engleză Paperback – 28 Mar 2019
Conspiracy theories are legion. Conspiracies are rare. And of the few that do exist, fewer are ever discovered, let alone explained. This story is the exception.In 2016, media giant Gawker was forced to declare bankruptcy after a $140 million dollar judgment in court over an illegally recorded sex tape of Hulk Hogan. The case was no accident: it was the result of a nearly decade-long plot masterminded by Facebook and Paypal billionaire Peter Thiel.With exclusive access to all the key players, Ryan Holiday takes us behind the scenes of this extraordinary and at times surreal story, and transforms the events into both a dissection of that controversial methodology - conspiracy - and an eye-opening cautionary tale on the use, abuse and consequences of power and secrecy in the modern age.

Gripping narrative - Holiday has written one helluva page-turner.
Riveting...an astonishing modern media conspiracy...that is a fantastic read. Holiday is a fine writer. He brilliantly elucidates... [with] a reporter's eye for detail.
Brilliant and terrifying
An artful examination of how true power really works and how it affects all of us.
Every one of Ryan Holiday's books is appointment reading for me. If he writes it, I make the time to read it.
