Find Out Why Zack O'Malley Greenburg Wrote his Book on Jay-Z, EMPIRE STATE OF MIND

On the Forbes site Zack writes about why he wrote his book without Jay-Z's participation, ending with:  My book aims to answer a simple question: how did Jay-Z rise from Brooklyn’s impoverished housing projects to a position as one of America’s most successful businessmen? The answer should be of interest to anybody interested in music, sports, or business—and to any entrepreneur in search of a blueprint for building something spectacular from the humblest of beginnings. Jay-Z’s story is the American dream in its purest form, and it’s a story I’m honored to tell—even if he didn’t want me to tell it.
