I find the subtitle to the tale most apt: The Denver Post was incredible. Yet after following Hosokawa's account of events and characters - what extraordinary people they were! - one comes to believe that the paper was not only possible but downright necessary for the milieu it served so boisterously, to the great profit of its ever-contentious owners. Coloradans have heard much of what Tamman and Bonfils did for (and to) their state during its adolescence; it is good to see recognition now accorded to Palmer Hoyt's equally colorful regime during Denver's more recent years of explosive growth. All in all, its a compelling saga, told with wit, verve, and, so it appears, full candor. -- David Lavender
