Halperin takes you inside Lalbierté's world, with its never-ending cycle of hyper-intense work by day, followed by over-the-top partying by night. Sex, drugs, alcohol, partying--all fuel Laliberté's creative genius. Ian Halperin's book shows how this former accordion player, stilt-walker, and fire-eater made it to Forbes magazine's list of the world's richest billionaires. In 2008, Guy Laliberté was recognized by Time Magazine as one of the 100 most influential people in the world. On September 30, 2009 at a cost of $35 million, Laliberté blasted off into orbit to spend 12 days as only the world's seventh, and Canada's first, space tourist. On October 9th, from the International Space Station, Laliberté, as part of his "poetic mission," hosted a spectacular worldwide concert to raise awareness of the earth's fresh water crisis."

Author is a glorified gossip columnist who, it turns out at the end, has an axe to grind. Smutty.
