From the founders in the late nineteenth century to Robert Wood "Woody" Johnson IV, billionaire owner of the New York Jets, the Johnson dynasty mirrors the Kennedy clan in its propensity for scandal and tragedy. Now all is revealed in this scrupulously researched unauthorized biography by Jerry Oppenheimer. The New York Times bestselling author of biographies of the Kennedys, the Clintons, the Hiltons and Martha Stewart, Oppenheimer uncovers the very private lives of the Johnson family, their immense power, their extraordinary wealth, and provocative dramas: The Thrice-married Johnson heiress whose lovers included a Wall Street baron's daughter and, reputedly, a First Lady; The failed suicides of a prominent Johnson brother and sister, and their bizarre marriages and kinky sex games; The health-obsessed dynasty ruler who abandoned his son and his mother because they were too fat; and, The Johnson wife and mother - her photos once festooned a mobster's prison cell - who would walk away with a claimed $100 million divorce settlement. Based on scores of exclusive, on-the-record interviews with family, friends, business associates, lovers, and detractors, Crazy Rich serves up a host of revelations about the family that was once termed perhaps the most dysfunctional family in the Fortune 500.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"It would seem that having enough money to do every stupid thing that strikes your fancy is no blessing. . . . [Crazy Rich] is gossipy and fast-moving, with surprising emotional resonance." --Newark Star Ledger

"A breathless tell-all . . . Oppenheimer trains his gaze on the Johnsons, the cursed Kennedies of pharmaceuticals--a family who, with every generation, find themselves at the center of celebrity and political scandal. . . . The book is an impressive example of journalistic synthesis, bringing together bits of tabloid journalism not usually connected (playing celebrity connect-the-dots is half the book's fun) around a strong narrative core [about] a family whose money can buy influence and power, but comes with costly personal consequences." --Publishers Weekly

"A prolific biographer of the rich and infamous, Oppenheimer digs into five generations of the Johnson family . . . detailing their mind-boggling personal wealth. . . . A fast-paced chronicle of births, courtings, marriages, divorces, estrangements, bitter lawsuits, drug and alcohol abuses, crimes, memorable deaths and other unpleasantness. . . . A character-driven saga suggesting that the spoiled rich are their own worst enemies." --Kirkus Reviews

"A wicked debunking of Stewart's carefully crafted persona." --People on Just Desserts

"After reading House of Hilton, you'll wonder why anyone wouldn't beg to be dropped from the speed dial of a family that makes the Osbournes look like the Brady Bunch." --The New York Times
