An Irish epic, The Maximilist documents in unflinching detail and with great subtlety the meteoric rise and slow unravelling of an Irish icon.

Shortlisted for the Bord Gáis Energy Irish Book Awards 2015

Tony O’Reilly strode into the twenty-first century an Irishman apart.

Strikingly good-looking, athletically gifted, irresistibly charismatic and phenomenally wealthy, he had everything any man could want. For many, he was a hero, the living embodiment of Irish potential; for others, he was an arrogant and overbearing presence at the heart of power. Without doubt, he was the most powerful unelected Irishman of the past 50 years.

His philosophy was simple: ‘I am a maximalist … I want more of everything.’ But it was never enough. And today, O’Reilly’s empire and the formidable reputation it established lie in tatters.

In this landmark biography, Matt Cooper draws on an abundance of new material, including interviews with many of O’Reilly’s closest family, friends, associates and rivals, to uncover the man behind the myth.
