Fact or Fiction:
Future Forward: Leadership Lessons from Patrick McGovern, the Visionary Who Circled the Globe and Built a Technology Media Empire by Glenn Rifkin.  That's a long title for an interesting book. While I'm intimately familiar with the IDG media properties, I had not previously encountered a lot of information on the man who built the IDG empire.  Future Forward gives a behind the scenes look at McGovern's 30 year journey in building the IDG brand and the role he played in the spawn of the technology industry itself.  This book is a great mix of business leadership lessons coupled with detailed stories about the formation of IDG with a deep focus on their international expansion into Russia, China, and other markets.
