Like 'Barbarians at the Gate' this incredible non-fiction book reads as if it were fiction. In fact, it more-or-less is the prequel to 'Barbarians' as each complements the other nicely. Michael Milken is a fascinating character study, and as the hub in the 1980's insider trading ring, he truly personified the "Greed is Good" mentality that persisted on Wall St in the 1980's. Rarely can I label a non-fiction author a master storyteller, but James B. Stewart succeeds masterfully in doing so. This is an excellent book.

This is a fantastic book that meticulously traces the insider trading cliques that were rampant in the 80s with an incestuous ring of networked fixers trading information and favours to move stock prices in ways that would serve to make themselves extremely wealthy. Reading this book, one would be struck to see the casual manner in which issues of conflict of interest and criminality were rationalized away as"everybody does it" or "that's how things are done in Wall Street". The most shocking aspect is the brazen criminality. Unlike the crash of the late 2000s which was driven by poorly defined incentives than malicious intent, The dramatis personae of this take, Boesky, Siegel, Levine, Milken all knew they were breaking the law but went ahead and did it anyway. And in the most exasperating post of the whole affair, the author does that despite the indictments and the prison terms, most of them still retained substantial wealth after their purgatory terms were over. At the end, it's not clear if one can really say that crime, at least on Wall Street, does not pay.

Outstanding coverage of an involved and difficult case. As usual the bad guys got away with it but it is the way the complicated story is put across and the dramatic finale tht makes this a must read for people interested in Wall St greed of the "80's (repeated in the 90's, 2000's and now 2010 in other words forever) The real heroes were the lawyers who stuck with low salaries for years to bring the offenders to justice. That showed public service (ahead of private gain )in America is not dead after all. Excellent

This account will 'get' you, immediately putting you into the thick of the appallingly real story of these arbitrageurs (the author nails what they really are: thieves). Even 35 years later, it's still astounding just how far these arbitrageurs went in breaking the law, astounding how much wealth they amassed and, despite the Herculean efforts and 'victories' of authorities, it's astounding how much ill-gotten wealth the biggest offenders ended up retaining. But beware: it may also leave you outraged at the lack of contrition of the biggest perpetrators, saddened at the continued fawning of their sycophantic worshippers, and still wondering what's really changed now?

For anyone struggling to understand the motivations and ecosystem of challenges around the financial system - this is a book to read.

The details are intense and insightful. I found the profiles of the people involved most telling. Their mindsets and decisions and values say more about the challenges we face in a civil society than anything else.

This book reads like a thriller. I liked how Stewart structured the story of financial impropriety and allowed characters to emege through such meticulous research. Stewart has a reporter's eye for detail and for dialogue so it though a reader is right in the middle of all the action.

What saddened me about reading this is despite the time between the events of the late 1980s and late 2000s, little changed in terms of outcomes (as the 2008 financial collapse taught the world). Overall, though, this is an excellent book to understand what caused the excess of the 1980s and to better understand how the world remains vulnerable to individuals and their involvement in the markets.

A little dated in 2017 but still a good read. It is not easy to imagine the kind of wealth talked about in this book. It is harder still to imagine the unlimited greed.
This is the preeminent account of the Milken-Boesky-Levine insider trading scandal that brought down Drexel and chilled Wall Street for a decade. Exceptionally well researched and easy to read, the book takes the reader through a maze of deals, informants, financial engineering and fraud. A must read for any finance fan.
