Too Big to Fail: Inside the Battle to Save Wall Street: Best business books of all time

Autor Andrew Ross Sorkin
en Limba Engleză Paperback – iul 2010
SHORTLISTED FOR THE BBC SAMUEL JOHNSON PRIZE 2010

They were masters of the financial universe, flying in private jets and raking in billions. They thought they were too big to fail. Yet they would bring the world to its knees.
Andrew Ross Sorkin, the news-breakingNew York Timesjournalist, delivers the first true in-the-room account of the most powerful men and women at the eye of the financial storm - from reviled Lehman Brothers CEO Dick 'the gorilla' Fuld, to banking whiz Jamie Dimon, from bullish Treasury Secretary Hank Paulson to AIG's Joseph Cassano, dubbed 'The Man Who Crashed the World'.
Through unprecedented access to the key players, Sorkin meticulously re-creates frantic phone calls, foul-mouthed rows and white-knuckle panic, as Wall Street fought to save itself.

WithToo Big to Fail, Andrew Ross Sorkin has broken theBarbarians[At The Gate] curse ... Ross Sorkin's ... astonishing narrative of the epic financial crisis of 2008 is an extraordinary achievement that will be hard to surpass as the definitive account
As close to a definitive account as we are likely to get

Sorkin has succeeded in writingthebook of the crisis, with amazing levels of detail and access
Too good to put down . . . It is the story of the actors in the most extraordinary financial spectacle in 80 years, and it is told brilliantly . . . It is hard to imagine them being this riveting
Sorkin can write. His storytelling makesLiar's Pokerlook like a children's book
The most readable and exciting report of the events surrounding the Lehman collapse that we have seen . . . impeccably sourced
The sense of being in the meeting rooms as hitherto all-conquering alpha male egos fight for their reputations, as their and our world judders, is palpable
Surpassed its rivals with its depth, range of reporting and high quality analysis
A superbly researched and sobering take on the events surrounding the meltdown on Wall Street
The heir to Barbarians at the Gate
