Description
How the largest man-made constellation in the heavens was built by dreamers in the Arizona Desert, targeted for destruction by panicked executives, and saved by a single Palm Beach retiree who battled Motorola, cajoled the Pentagon, wrestled with thirty banks, survived an attack by Congress, infiltrated the White House, found allies through the Black Entertainment Network, and wooed a mysterious Arab prince to rescue the only phone that links every inch of the planet.
