5.0 out of 5 stars THE BANKER OF LAST RESORT, 3 Nov 2009
By 
Swapan Seth "Luxeist" (New Delhi, India) - See all my reviews
(REAL NAME)   
Duff McDonald's " Last Man Standing" is an engaging account of unarguably one of the most engaging bankers that walks the planets. The book compellingly charts Dimon's career from the risky beginnings that he made after business school right through the risk that he took by walking out of Citigroup to take over Bank One. What makes Duff's book a masterpiece is the insights that he has into the private life of Dimon. Finally, the book celebrates Dimon's unassailable authority during the 2008 financial crisis. A staggering book on a staggering subject.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating - and flattering - profile of financial power, 12 Oct 2009
By 
Rolf Dobelli "getAbstract" (Switzerland) - See all my reviews
(TOP 500 REVIEWER)    (REAL NAME)   
Duff McDonald's book covers a fascinating historical moment - the 2008-2009 Wall Street debacle - by profiling a pivotal character in the thick of it, Jamie Dimon, CEO of JPMorgan Chase. Having spent extensive time with Dimon, McDonald combines his reporting with published sources, Dimon's own writings and statements, and interviews with his associates, employees or relatives. McDonald covers Dimon's youth, business school education and evolving career. Dimon was a nonconformist in business school and politics, an astute lieutenant of his mentor Sandy Weill, and a pivotal figure in the financial crisis. Notably, he preserved JPMorgan Chase, bought Bear Stearns and helped lead the market back to stability. Readers interested in a critical take on Dimon may find the book too flattering, but if you want to see how the financial wars looked from the CEO's chair, getAbstract recommends this intriguing perspective.
