I has it all Charles Gasparino brings it all to life.
Fact based but not bogged down, lively story that keeps moving.

This book does a superb job of setting forth, in a very direct and entertaining way, one of the great misperceptions in the history of corporate America. The little guy in the dark suit was ultimately done in by his board who was so overwhelmed by his performance that they overpaid (or so they claim). Then they fire him for making too much money, thereby creating one of the great tragedies of all time on Wall St. It led to a covert takeover of the NYSE and the move to electronic trading where small investors get screwed and large investment houses rape their customers. Thanks a lot guys. Bring back the little guy. Real investors need him.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
