I recently read a book called Grand Ambition about the construction of a large Mega. It definitely did not showcase the owners in a favorable light, but an interesting read.
Grand Ambition is a very telling story of the owner but also how sad and desperate the situation at Trinity was. It's also a great example of the danger of dealing with a builder with inadequate capital. A lot of idiocy in it. I felt so bad for the workers who were in such difficult conditions. But lessons learned for buyers of any type boat.
