    Great sources with an interesting perspective

    I found this book to be highly informative, due largely to, the author's varied primary sources of people who knew the key players of Wall Street well. While more modern figures such as Milken are less interesting, if you read other books like the Predator's Ball, this book provides excellent background on what made Charlie Merrill and Jerry Tsai. Takes a bit of time to adjust to the style and piece threads together, but is well worth the read for someone wanting to understand the modern history of Wall St.
