""His forte has never been as the grown-up running the company," he said. "He's the unpredictable mad genius behind Oracle. His life is an adventure, and Oracle is part of the adventure -- but not the whole thing. It's an old joke that they used to call it an Elvis sighting when Larry was actually in Redwood Shores. It's understood he's the company visionary and an itinerant CEO."

Just reading a book whose title may give a clue to the man, The Difference Between God and Larry Ellison : *God Doesn't Think He's Larry Ellison
