Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Last Tycoons: The Secret History of Lazard Frères & Co.: The Secret History of Lazard Freres & Co. (Paperback)
A fascinating tale, well told. You don't need to know any jargon and the author is very good at explaining any complex issues. It really is amazing just how unpleasant most of these people were.
Also many of them seemed to be pretty incompetent.
I think that some people might find it to be perhaps a bit too long and it can be a bit uneven.
There are lots of great anecdotes and unusual characters in the book. It shows that Investment banking has probably always attracted the "morally challenged"
