Former AOL mogul Ted Leonsis is riding high.
His Washington Capitals are the hottest team in the National Hockey League, selling out every game and setting franchise records for television viewership.
Leonsis, 54, and another former AOL guy, Steve Case, each pocketed tens of millions of dollars when they sold their Revolution Money start-up to American Express last year.
Now comes Leonsis's book "The Business of Happiness," which details his rise from a lower-middle-class Brooklyn, N.Y., kid to super-rich entrepreneur, sports team owner and documentary film producer.
