Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 097900800X, Hardcover)Few business leaders have enjoyed lives that were more eventful, rewarding, and entertaining than that of Richard J. Schmeelk. As a general partner of Salomon Brothers Inc., a member of the firm's executive committee, and head of its worldwide corporate finance activities from 1980 to 1987, Schmeelk witnessed many of the most dramatic episodes in business history--and played a role in shaping more than a few of them. He helped Salomon Brothers become the leading U.S. investment banking firm in raising capital for corporations, governments, and financial institutions worldwide, and earned the affectionate moniker "Mr. Canada" as the leading American banker north of the border. In this engaging memoir, Dick Schmeelk offers a lifetime of stories and insights about the amazing world of corporate finance--its struggles, pitfalls, challenges, and sometimes heady rewards. You'll learn about the human side of high finance: the red-eye flights, the friendships forged (and sometimes broken) under pressure, and the high-stakes games of bluff and counter-bluff that determine cash flows in the billions of dollars. You'll meet some of the most remarkable business and political leaders of the past quarter-century, from Walter Wriston, David Rockefeller, and Pierre Trudeau to John Gutfreund, Paul Volcker, and Michael Bloomberg. Most of all, you'll get to know Dick Schmeelk--outspoken, funny, colorful, a canny financier who takes business seriously--but never himself.
