Once upon a time, Wall Street was just a footpath near the southern tip of Manhattan Island. Today it is the center of the financial world, the pivot point on which economies turn, companies rise and fall, and daring men and women go from rags to riches, and back again. Along the way, Wall Street has grown from an exclusive gentlemen’s club to the place that millions of people now trust with their financial futures.
This riveting book–based on hundreds of interviews with Wall Street power brokers–captures the booms and busts of the past half century in gripping detail as it allows the masters of modern Wall Street to speak for themselves.
