Former News Corp executive Les Hinton, described as Rupert Murdoch’s right-hand man, had released a memoir about the glory and the tragedy of the newspaper business.

‘The Bootle Boy’ details Les’s life by Murdoch’s side for more than 50 years.

He began work as a copy boy in 1959 at the Adelaide News in South Australia, where 28-year-old Murdoch was managing director, and stayed with the company until 2011.
