    So a few observations on this.

    First off the story of the expensive bottle of wine, or rather the fiasco it became, has already been covered in another book. “The Billionaires Vinegar.”

    Second: There’s no mystery about where the Faberge Eggs went. The Forbes brothers sold them because they just weren’t into them the way Malcolm was. A Russian businessman bought them at auction.

    Of course the Forbes people will probably start whispering to media reporters about the circumstances around Pinkerton’s departure from The Wall Street Journal.

    I do however look forward to the inside story of this:
    “Family’s management removal by rocker Bono‘s investment group.” Not because of the Bono angle as he isn’t anywhere near the most interesting person at Elevation Partners: Of course Roger McNamee is.
