It is the biography of Tony Ryan, Irish entrepreneur who started off the business of airliners leasing, and later founded Ryanair, that changed radically air travel in Europe. The biography seems well researched, with much detail on the financial side of the businesses involved. It shows the life of entrepreneurship. The protagonist seemed unable to find a work-family balance, that led to separation from his wife. This sad aspect of his life is dealt with in the book in a factual manner, without the expected reference to its moral dimension – almost approvingly. The same approach is found when dealing with the protagonist’s later affairs with three different ladies. There is no inappropriate description. Well written, with a sense of humour.
