People the world over are appalled and fascinated in equal measure by the stratospheric political career of the tycoon and three-time Italian prime minister Silvio Berlusconi. In being Berlusconi, Michael Day examines the life and crimes of the shameless media mogul. He tells ths story of a bright and ambitious man from a lower-middle-class family who shook off his humble origins and rose to become rich and powerful beyond most people's dreams, a multi-billionaire whose Mediaset company remains one of Europe's largest television and cinema conglomerates. Along the way, amid the election victories and business triumphs, he became bogged down by his hubris, egotism and sexual obsessions - and his flagrant disregard for the law. How and why did Italy and Italians put up with him for so long?
