This is the most in-depth biography of the Hilton family on the market. Due to it being largely a family history, it limits its mentions of its most notable (in current times) members: Paris. If one is looking for a history of the Hilton brand as well as the family behind it, this is certainly the book you'd like to read!

This was an interesting biography, which exposed me for the first time to the name of financier, Floyd Odlum. This led me to the Eisenhower Library papers, which exposed why Eisenhower and the CIA overthrew the democratically-elected government of President Arbenz in Guatemala: because the chief investor in United Fruit at that time was Floyd Odlum, just as he was the chief financial backer of a candidate who became President Eisenhower. [Good portrayal of Paris Hilton, too.]

I have read all of Taraborrelli's biographies, and look forward to his next one.
