Auletta chronicles the activity at Lehman Brothers during the months between July 1983 and April 1984, immediately preceding the firm's takeover by Shearson/American Express. During that brief period, Auletta reveals, Wall Street's oldest investment banking partnership was simultaneously buffetted by the ambition and greed of one faction and by the complacency and misplaced self-assurance of another group of partners.

And yet, such is the volatility of Wall Street today that, in a matter of months, Lehman was hemorrhaging, losing money and partners.

Extensive exclusive interviews inform this account of the bitter internecine fighting that led the way to the takeover of one of America's most prestigious investment banks by the mammoth American Express
The author masterly paints what happend in the year during which Lehman Brothers Kuhn Loeb ceased to exist.
The battle to survive on the market for which the firm needed more capital in times of macroeconomic turbulence went along with internal battle involving strong characters, friend and foes, greedy and full of pride for beign part of Wall Street legendary partnership.
Learned a lot about the Lehman Brothers. Cotton trading of Lehman brothers in Montgomery, Alabama to 55 Water street in Manhattan to Shearson/American Express buyout in 1985. Egotistical, greedy millionaires. Read about the final couple years that ended in 2008 with bankruptcy. Now I know how they started.
This story of greed and glory is one that has been acted out in all types of businesses - large or small, service or product, new or old. It is a parable of overinflated egos, hyperpolitical environments and the inability of individuals to see their limits when blinded by the light of self-glorification. It is essential reading for anyone in a shared leadership role - partners, executives in tightly run corporations, etc. - and is most valuable for the lessons people should learn about themselves through Lehman's demise.
The story of Lehman Brothers' problems in the mid-1980s. The author does a great job of depicting the characters.

I hope he does one or more sequel. One could be about Lehman's problems in 2008 and another could be about two of the characters in this book who went on to found BlackRock and become two of the richest men in the world.

The handling of pictures was much better than in most Kindle editions.
Good history of Investment Banking and especially Lehman Brothers. Tough reading sometimes due to the insider point of views on specific personalities and conflicts, but all in all a good representation of the historical facts and details leading up to the eventual demise of one of the largest institutional collapses of our time.
good reading
Enjoyed this view of what happened to a great financial firm. Makes one wonder what other towers of power are running amuck today!
Good Book.
