The adventurer, financier and philanthropist offers an insider’s look at risk management in this personal guide to risk-taking in life and business.

As the founder of Caribbean Capital & Consultancy and a former general partner of Bear Sterns, Michael E. Tennenbaum knows a thing or two about taking risks and winning big. In this unique and insightful volume, he shares his views on risk through stories of high-stakes deals and creative financial innovations, as well as anecdotes about riding in a nuclear submarine and literally swimming with sharks.

Tennenbaum also shares strategies for using risk to seize opportunities, manage mistakes, and give back to one’s community. His personal tales take readers inside Bear Sterns, the Smithsonian Institution, Harvard Business School, and the Joffrey Ballet, among other firms and cultural institutions. Through it all, Tennenbaum demonstrates how to reach greater heights of performance, achievement, and contentment through embracing risk.
