Re: [DML] John DeLorean: The Maverick Mogul

Actually Delusions would have bigger print: the chapter titled "GPD" begins on p. 163 of Mogul and p. 195 of Delusions.

The manuscript most likely was indeed very similar between them (but not identical -- opening sentence of Delusions includes "red upholstered furniture" omitted from Mogul). I'm just curious if editors allowed a piece of vital information in one but not the other. It was worth $8 to find out (Alibris still has another copy for $11).
