Randolph’s new book, “THE MANY LIVES OF MICHAEL BLOOMBERG” set for release on Sept. 10, is an account of the former New York City mayor’s life and the computer software system he invented, which provides financial data to bankers and investors as well as its impact on the financial universe. The book chronicles Bloomberg’s life from his modest Jewish working-class upbringing in Massachusetts to Wall Street to New York City mayor to present day, and how he now spends his money philanthropically and politically.

“As a member of the New York Times editorial board covering New York City, I began writing about Michael Bloomberg when he became mayor,” Randolph said in a statement through her publisher, Simon & Schuster. “Through his dozen years in this heady job, Bloomberg changed before my eyes from a feisty Wall Streeter to a powerful political force. There seemed to be a fascinating, complex character behind his starched and sometimes staid image, and I felt that nobody had really given him his due.”

Randolph also authored the book “Waking the Tempests: Ordinary Life in New Russia” after living in Russia from 1991-93.
