Overview

Bear, Stearns & Co., a storied Wall Street firm with a maverick reputation, had endured many crises in its 85-year history. Nothing, however, could have prepared the firm for the sudden death spiral that would lead to its takeover for a pittance. In a dramatic showdown with JP Morgan and the Fed, this is the tragic story of how fortunes were made and lost. Bill Bramber, a senior executive at Bear Stearns, had a bird's eye view of just what happened inside Bear's offices and on the trading floor that led to the most sensational financial crisis of our times.

This book's timing is just as amazing as the story told by this insider, Bill Bamber. We now know that fall of the legendary investment bank 'Bear Stearns' is only the tip of the iceberg! This story is a stimulating trip into the world of the big investment banking institutions, with true life drama and fascinating insight - like the prediction or warning that similar institutions Lehman Brothers and Merrill Lynch will fail - have you seen the news lately? One word - Extraordinary!
