This book is miserably organized and miserably edited. There are lacunae and non sequitors throughout. Nevertheless there are lots of interesting facts here and some reflections on personalities, although it is a little hagiographic. The warts shown are covered over cosmetically. Still with the facts and for a reasonably recent recounting the book can serve a purpose; I understand the news better having read it. ( )

A glimpse into what it takes to become the leading investment bank. A very well researched book. ( )

With Bear Stearns, Lehman and other firms in trouble Goldman Sachs stands out as a winner or at least a survivor. So many of their top officers ended up in major government positions, Therefore this is an important book, even if many Amazon reviews claim it is badly written.
