Readers can now learn everything they have ever wanted to know about their favorite media mogul for a mere $4.

Vanity Fair has released an e-book on News Corp. Chairman and CEO Rupert Murdoch featuring a series of articles that detail various aspects of the media mogul and his empire.

"Rupert Murdoch: The Master Mogul of Fleet Street" features 20 articles spread out over six chapters as chosen by editor Graydon Carter.
