Description

"Engrossing . . . a parable about how the second Gilded Age came slamming to a fast and furious end. . . . Riveting, edge-of-the-seat reading." --Michiko Kakutani, The New York Times

"Cohan's epic account chronicles a watershed moment in Wall Street history." --The Boston Globe

"Masterfully reported. . . . [Cohan] does a brilliant job of sketching in the eccentric, vulgar, greedy, profane and coarse individuals who ignored all these warnings to their own profit and the ruin of so many others."--Los Angeles Times

"A masterly reconstruction of Bear Stearns' implosion--a tumultuous episode in Wall Street history that still reverberates throughout our economy today. . . . First drafts of history don't get much better than this." --Bloomberg News

"This book is so rich, so flavorful, so instructive, and so fully and compelling cast that a reviewer hardly knows where to begin." --The New York Observer

"Cohan vividly documents the mix of arrogance, greed, recklessness, and pettiness that took down the 86-year-old brokerage house and then the entire economy. It's a page-turner . . . offering both a seemingly comprehensive understanding of the business and wide access to insiders. . . . Hard to put down." --BusinessWeek

"[A]n authoritative, blow-by-blow account of the collapse of Bear Stearns." --The Washington Post

"Cohen's autopsy uncovers all the symptoms of a walking disaster." --Newsweek

"A riveting blow-by-blow account." --The Economist
