Arianna Huffington is one of the world's most prominent business leaders in media. In her biography, Ariana Huffington: Media Visionary and Wellness Evangelist, journalist Leah McGrath Goodman provides us with a concise but richly detailed overview of Huffington's life and career As co-founder and editor-in-chief of The Huffington Post, Ariana Huffington built the first internet newspaper, which eclipsed the traffic of The New York Times and won the Pulitzer Prize. Creating a digital media empire from an investment of just over $1 million, she sold HuffPost to AOL in 2011 for more than $300 million. Considered to be one of the most influential women on earth, Huffington went on to establish Thrive Global, a wellness and technology start-up that aims to end the stress and burn-out epidemic.
